Hi Everyone.

I just gave the GMAT on Monday and got a 590. It's not a great score and I'll probably give it again. Just wanted your inputs on schools.

I got my undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering in India. I then got my Master's in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I have been working in the auto industry for the past 3 years.

I've been thinking of the weekend program at Ross. I've also been considering Berkley, UT Austin and ESADE Barcelona.

Do you think I should take a chance and apply with this score or apply after I retake the exam?

Thanks

I think you should retake the test to improve your odds. Applications take lot of time, and you would ideally want to spend this time knowing that your test score won't pull down your odds.

I would not go near Ross with the 590 nor Haas. Might look at UT Austin and ESADE but I suggest you first give the GMAT another go if this is just the first time you have taken it. Many of my clients have made strong improvements in their subsequent testing. Good luck!
Thanks

Hi Everyone. Thanks for your inputs.

I've decided to give the exam again, since it was my 1st time.

Hopefully the score should improve.

Thanks once again.
