GMAT-530.(lower than my capability). but not planned to retake it. if I can admission in top MBA colleges.
For the same I am ok with MBA in UK or US, but ranked universities.
Please let me know, which country I should prefer? I know, in UK, chances are more to get admission. but if I can admission in US, it will be preferred.
Can you please suggest me to look which universites in US?
Money is also constraint for me. so can't go for much costlier MBA.

With the visa laws in the UK, it's fairly difficult for international students to get visas after they graduate from an MBA, especially from a lower-tier business school. You have to have a job lined up by the time you graduate, which is easier said than done for many people.

In the US, you may be able to convert your study visa to what's known as a "Optional Practical Training" visa, which allows you to work for up to one year after graduation, giving you some time to ideally line up sponsorship through a firm. This is also challenging, especially for graduates of unranked business schools.

Yes, you should retake the GMAT. If you can score around 650 or higher, you'd start being competitive at second-tier MBA programs in the US, like:

Fordham
George Washington
Georgia - Terry
SMU Cox
Penn State - Smeal
