GMAT-620 Canada MBA


praneeth

Hi I need suggestions for MBA in canada

GMAT-620(Q49, V26). I know it's low.
X-85%
XII-89%
UG(B.E.)- 62%(India)
Work Experience- 2+ years
EC's- Good.

I am planning to apply for Sauder, Schulich, Haskayne, Ivey, Simon Fraser. What are the odds that I get into a good B-School in Canada? Can I consider some other schools like McGill, Jon Molson ? But I heard Jon Molson Avg. Salary is too low. I am a bit confused as I am concerned about ROI. And also please suggest me if University Of Cape Town is good. I am also considering it. Someone please be helpful and reply to my post ASAP. I am already worried about my score, but I am not going to give another try :|

Why won't you give it another try? You have plenty of time for the 2014 entry.

Your work experience and undergraduate percentage are also well below average and, since you are Indian, you need to aim at schools where you are above average. There is no point applying to top schools like McGill or Schulich (with a 620 GMAT).

You might be competitive at the weaker schools - Haskayne, Concordia - but you have much less of a chance, especially considering your lower-than-average work experience.

I'd retake the GMAT, aim for 660, but 700 would make you a viable option at the stronger schools.

And also please suggest me if University Of Cape Town is good.

It is. But you do realize it's not in Canada, right?

This U of Victoria in this thread is in Canada, and does not have triple accreditation. The triple accredited one is in New Zealand: Victoria Business School.

No, you are mistaken. Triple accreditation requires accreditation by AMBA (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triple_accreditation). UVic neither claims, nor has, it.

No. I agree with Ralph. You will be better advised to retake the exam.
