Need some help in deciding B-schools

by Rinki Popli » Sun Nov 15, 2015 9:19 pm
Hello,

Appeared for my GMAT yesterday. Got Quant - 50, Verbal - 30, Total - 660. Have no clue what went wrong in Verbal section yesterday as I have been solving Manhattan and Jamboree practice tests well. I thought I would score somewhere around 690.
Please suggest if I should re-appear for the same or shall I go ahead and apply to B-schools..
Further, please tell me which all B-schools should I apply for? Full-time MBA or Executive MBA?

Thanks in advance.
Rinki

What is it that you want out of your MBA?

Also, with a verbal score at the 58th percentile, I would recommend taking the exam again if you are looking at top programs.

Though I have gained some insight into the coding/testing world, I would now like to gain some new skills which can help me understand the umbrella view of a business organization. I think I have played my part in the software world, and now is the time to move ahead.
