Suggestions for GMAT score 600


neetika
Hi,
I am from India.
GMAT: 600 (Q:45, V:27)
Graduation: my college was affiliated to an International University, so I have a B.E.(Hons) in Computing from Staffordshire University, UK. I was a good student and have mostly 'A' grades in all my coursework
Work Experience: close to 5 years
Background: IT
Extra Curricular activities: Am an active member of Toastmasters club, have completed my Competent Leader level 1.

I am aware that my score is less but my overall profile is good, could you suggest which colleges I can target for either fall 2018 intake or next year 2019 intake.

Hi,
I am primarily looking for US-based colleges. I am aware that maybe my GMAT score is less for a decent college but I was just trying my luck if anything good can work out for me in terms of knowledge and scholarship on this score.

Hult is headquartered in the USA, at Boston with a strong campus in San Francisco.

Forgive me if this is a silly question, but why are you focussed on the US if you are from India? Surely you'd need a H1B visa to work there, and the best way to get that would be to study in India and be hired by one of the firms that is most successful at winning H1B visas for their employees.

Yeah, I checked out Hult earlier but I had ruled it out based on the earlier discussion threads on the page. I am now rechecking and reconsidering it. I wanted to know if you could possibly have other suggestions for me to research upon along with Hult.

Regarding the job chances, chances of getting employment in the UK also appear slim. The same applies to getting an MBA degree from India and applying for the job to the US given that the current option I have in India is a PGPM which is more like a certification and less like a degree. So, I am unsure of its acceptance internationally regardless of the accreditations

Try this: Shortcut to find the best US MBA www.find-mba.com/board/36065

I don't really understand your focus on the US, whether your career goals are realistic, or if your profile is as good as you think it is, so I can't confidently recommend specific schools. I think you should work on your verbal acuity and improve your GMAT.

International mobility is hard anywhere, but it's not the case that the opportunities are *relatively* slim in the UK. Quite the opposite: many of the best schools for international mobility are there, and none are in the USA. Best schools for international students' placement http://www.find-mba.com/board/41143 In fact, I do wonder if EMLyon or McGill might fit you.

Yes, McGill, and even Canadian schools more broadly, might be a good option. Canada is a popular designation among international students since post-MBA visas are relatively easy to secure. There are fewer job opportunities in Canada than versus the US, but that's to be expected given the relative size of the economy. Certainly if you did an MBA at one of the top schools in Canada and wanted to go into consulting, that's a tried-and-true route.

I think getting into McGill with a 600 GMAT score would be hard. Work on your verbal and re-take.

Yes, 600 is lowest range for the current class makeup, so very few students are admitted with this score.
