Hi,

I gave my GMAT yesterday and scored 640 (Q49, V28). I am pursuing civil engineering from BITS PILANI (a premier engineer college of India). My current CGPA is 8.7 and is expected to be 8.95 at the end of graduation.

I am aiming for Mim at colleges such as LBS, HEC and LSE.

My academic achievements include:-
1. Among top 4 students in civil engineering at college.
2. Published a conference paper.
3. Campus ambassador of Civil engineering software firm.

My extra-curricular and Positions of responsibilities include:
1. Secretary - music club : organised various music evenings, workshops by professionals.
2. Cultural Secretary - Regional association.
3. Vice President, co-founder and Ex-treasurer : Civil students society.

Internships:
1. Yoddhas - UNESCO recognised NGO as HR TEAM LEAD.
2. Port Trust - GOA

Kindly help whether should I reappear for exam?

Thanks.

Hi

While your profile otherwise (internships, ECA, college prestige, acads) are strong, your GMAT score is below par. Try and raise this by at least 40 points, and if possible, to above 700.

You might also like to look at other top options apart from these schools (not necessarily as an alternative, but as a supplement): ESSEC MiM, Rotterdam MScBA, and ESCP.
