"Come meet us" Invitation Emails [#permalink] New post 22 Jul 2012, 01:58
I've been quite curious about something since the past month or so and I'm hoping one of the many experienced and helpful experts here can help extinguish my curiosity.

I took my GMAT on June 2, 2012 and (thankfully) scored a respectable 730 (first attempt). I submitted by scores to schools of my choice and subsequently completed my profile on GMAC and allowed it to be available in the Graduate Management Admission Search Services (GMASS). Over the past month, I've been receiving emails from a lot of schools inviting me to meet with them/learn more about the school/leverage scholarship opportunities/attend upcoming info sessions in my city etc...

My question - Do these schools pre screen potential candidates based on the GMAT scores and information provided to GMAC or are these invitations totally random? I have not (yet) registered with any school's admissions forums and nor have I begun the application process with any school i.e. I have not explicitly signed up to receive information from them.

I'm asking because it would be a bit of a confidence boost if the schools actually do pre screen candidates before reaching out to them with invitations. I've received invites from some of my top choices (Stanford, Kellogg, MIT to name a few) so I'd love to know if these schools have qualified me (at some basic level) as a potential candidate.

Thanks in advance for your help.

People generally receive such emails from low ranked schools with scholarship offers, a direct admission, etc. We have never heard top schools such as Stanford, MIT, etc sending such unsolicited marketing emails. You would get such emails when you register on their sites for brochure, additional information, etc. Don't assign any level of importance to such emails. You can use them as a source of information. Your application will be reviewed when you submit it. GMAT is just one parameter in these applications. Spend a lot of time on your application essays. They would determine whether you will be shortlisted for an interview or not.

Good luck!

Thanks for your response. Appreciate it. The fact that I had received some of these unsolicited emails from top schools was the source of my curiosity because I received a ton from the low ranked schools and didn't think too much of those.

Anyways, by no means am I letting this giving a false sense of security. It was more of a admin process curiosity. Thanks for your input
