Entering score recipients on test day [#permalink] New post 25 Aug 2011, 14:46
Hello. I am new to the forum, but I think this is one of the best places with most comprehensive infromation, startegies and tips about GMAT. I will be taking the test in September, but I am little confused about the 5 school recipients that we can send scores to for free. What I do not understand is when exactly will I be asked to enter the schools - before I sit and start the actual test, or right after it ends? The asnwer to that will obviously make a huge difference. In most of the posts I have read, people say you enter them before you get seated and everything, but I remember seeing a post by someone in this forum saying that he/she skipped that option and then after finishing the test and seeing the score, was able to enter the recipients. I still have doubts about my schools to choose, because I don't want to enter schools from the top 10 for example, if my score won't be that great (better choose then some of the not so competitive and highly ranked schools). Also, will the school names be enough or I have to have their individual GMAT test code? If someone who has reliable info about this can answer, that will be great. Maybe it depends on the test center, where you take the test? Or not really? What do you think?

You enter them before hand. But you can always add schools afterwards at $25 a school.

You don't need to have any codes with you. Just know the names - there will be a massive drop down thingie for your 5 schools.

Hey Aurore,

Students often question whether to report their scores because they are selecting schools before they know their test
score. That’s a natural response, but it actually makes sense to select five free schools anyway. The score you get will
end up on your official GMAT “transcript”; you cannot remove or hide anything. You must submit this transcript if
you want to apply to a school, which means they will eventually see all of your scores. Because you have to give them
access anyway, you might as well give them access before you know the score, when it doesn’t cost you anything
extra! Don’t worry — admissions offices have no time to look up your score before you’ve even applied. In fact, some
schools do not even verify your self-reported score until after they’ve accepted you.

Best,
Matt Mapplebeck
