How much does GMAT matter to make the BCG interview list? [#permalink] New post 06 Aug 2013, 08:49

How much does GMAT matter in terms of who makes the BCG interview list?

GMAT is definitely a factor in deciding who makes the interview lists, however its importance varies by firm. At BCG for example, it
is a relatively minor part of the resume screening criteria (less important than the prestige of your schools and employers, your
professional experience, and your leadership and communication skills). In terms of the actual score, anything below 680 is a
detractor, 750 and above is a positive, and 680-740 is considered neutral.

My general advice to candidates is that if you have a 700+, you have basically checked the box for the "raw horsepower" the firms are
looking for and should be focusing on presenting your background well on your resume, networking effectively, and then getting ready for
those (hopefully) upcoming interviews
