It is true that GMAT is one of the most critical aspects of the MBA school admission process. However, if you do not have a competitive GMAT, it may not be the end of the road for you. If other aspects of your profile (work experience, EC’s, resume, LORs) are strong and are showcased well in your essays, you certainly have chances of success at your dream school.
One of my students proved it again last week after he was accepted into the CCMBA program of Duke Fuqua with a below 650 GMAT score. He not only received an admission offer but also received a partial scholarship. He shares his experience of collaborating with me at Beat the GMAT and GMAT Club forums. Take a look!!!
