Hi there,

Thanks for sharing your profile. Your work experience is solid and your involvement is decent assuming you participated regularly. If Ross or Tuck are a must, I do advise to retake the GMAT. Spend some time to see if you can crack 700 as that will help your chances quite a bit at Ross. Tuck will still be tough but worth a shot with a GMAT over 700.

Hope this information helps. Feel free to get back to us with the answers to the above questions. Also, feel free to check out our free resources to get you started for your R2 preparation. Best of luck this season!
