GMAT Score: I have been preparing (self) for almost a year now. First attempt (15 Jul'20): 660 (Q50 V29). Targeting 730+ (By Sep-mid).
What chance do I stand for M7 if I apply in R2 this year? Would I miss a chance if I do not apply in R1? (I wish I could apply in R1. But, improving my Verbal score will require a month's effort at least, and managing application process for R1 deadlines will be a rush.)
I understand I belong to an over-represented group (Indian IT Male Engineer), does my 'B.Arch' degree help me stand-out?
Anything I should do to add brownie points to my profile for R2 applications?
