I think the GMAT also matters more depending on what pile you are placed in. Obviously you have the Indian IT, where the overall average is probably on the higher range of the GMAT. Then the IB from NYC who apply in large numbers probably overall a tough group with a below avg to avg GMAT.


I used to think that schools demand higher scores from the Indian IT pool. I think this is a classic example of mistaking a correlation to a cause-effect. (Those CR days!).

Indian IT applicants with the high GMAT scores probably are better prepared and more hard working than the other applicants with lower scores. I said probably, so please dont take offense.

A high GMAT indicates that he/she is willing to work very hard to improve the odds of admission. Now, wouldn't such a person naturally put together a better application than a person with a lower score. I am sure people with 780 do crappy applications and conversely someone with a 600 can do a great job. But on average, you will expect the high GMATers to do a better job than a low GMATer.

Consequently, the high GMATers from the Indian IT pool get in more than the low GMATers. But they get in not neccesarily due to the high GMAT. But I can see how this can create an impression that a high GMAT is neccessary or sufficient.

Re-take GMAT if you feel you underperformed, but dont do it just because you have the need to crack the 750 barrier. My 2 cents...

I saw several posts about how high GMAT is valued at NYU. But can someone quantify it more...

For the entering class of '06, the GMAT stats where:

Average GMAT score 700
GMAT score: 80% range 640-750

So anything over 720, 730 is considered are high by the Ad-Com?

I am 730 GMAT but low UGPA (3.0) from a 15-20 ranked university. Would like to know from you how this will be regarded by the AdCom.

Thanks.

You GMAT and undergraduate GPA seem to be in line with the class profile at NYU. Your GMAT is a little higher than the average and you GPA is a little lower than the average but they both are within the 80% range. Your essays will do alot in determining the strength of your application.

Stern states that for re-applicants, essay #4 should be used to explain how your candidacy has improved since your last application but does not mention about the word limit. I have about 880 words. I think this should be fine since they did not specify the word limit. What you do guys and girls think?

Thanks!

Are you flying down to San diego? if you drop down in LA, we can rent a car together and head down there - let me know if you are interested in the idea.
