Congrats! I wish I could get a score like that :( Are you planning to apply to ISB ?


I will start working on my application next year .. I will apply but I am not that hopeful about ISB, they require longer work experience it seems.

Yeah, the average work experience in ISB is around 5 years. Since you graduated in 2010, you'll have to probably apply in the admission cycle of 2012.

thank you Entwistle, looking at the percentile I was a bit concerned...


I believe a 6.0 is 91st percentile, at least according to my score report from December end. So I wouldn't worry about it :)

At 6.0 , the percentile is 91st ? It's a little surprising given that 6 is the maximum one can get on the AWA. Shouldn't the percentile be 99%ile at a perfect score.

No, it doesn't work that way. On the GMAT, the percentile you get is calculated on the basis of how many candidates did better or equal to you in the last 5 years, so that means that a lot of people would have got a score of 6 and hence not everyone is going to get a 99th percentile .

Great achievement. The good thing is that you have taken the GMAT well on time,so now you can focus on building your profile over the next couple of years. By the way, I was reading somewhere that the GMAT gives more weightage to the Verbal section than to the Maths section ? I mean a person with Q-47 ,V-41 lands up with a 720 but with a Q-49 ,V-39 will land up with 700 or 710.

I don't think that anything like that is true ?In fact, hearing this for the first time. Can any senior member confirm whether more weightage is given to Verbal than to Quant ?

@gmatgunner
I am not a senior here but I think you're correct . There's no reason why the GMAT should give more weightage to Verbal than to Quant. After all, an MBA course has a lot of courses which are quant heavy. Some of the schools like Columbia, NYU etc which have a heavy focus on Finance expect you to do well on Quant.

Include Wharton also. It's known for its heavy focus on Finance.
