MSBA applicant - low verbal score

Aron Bjorn

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Kindly review my profile for MS in Business Analytics and please suggest me what are my chances for schools listed at the end 

Currently, working as a Business Intelligence Analyst in Reykjavik .

Experience : 2 years of experience in data science, BI, modeling.
Previous Education CGPA : 3.92 (9,46/10 on an icelandic scale), 1/128 students in Engineering in 2017, Bachelors of Science in Financial Engineering.
Intermediate Skills : SQL, R, Statistics
Beginner skills: Python, C++
GRE: 318 (168Q, 150 V
TOEFL: 104 (expired), expecting/hoping 105-110 this fall

Graduate schools: UCLA Anderson (MSBA), MIT Sloan (Master of Business Analytics)


I'm worried about my verbal score and whether I would simply not make a cut-off. However, the programs usually only refer quant scores, median/mean 167-168. I would really like to know what do you think my chances are for UCLA and MIT programs and whether my verbal score would be problematic. Do you think a TOEFL score of 110+ would even out an average verbal score?
