      Hi there,

      I think your chances are very good as your academic profile positions you at the best 10% and your CV shows some interesting experience. As for the GMAT, the VERY MINIMUM you should achieve is 600 Ideally, however, you make 650 or more.

      Keep in mind that some schools - e.g. IE - offer also an on-campus test as an alternative to the GMAT.

      best wishes
