GMAT after the Application submission [#permalink] New post 11 Nov 2010, 13:42
Experts Please advice,

I am planing to prepare my applications for the R2. But my GMAT is lagging behind , I planned for GMAT this weekend, but i don't see myself at 700 level, my prep is all fine i need more practice with the timer ticking. SO i may take some more time and hit hard to get 700 levels. But i don’t want to be delayed in my applications for R2 and go for R3. So, if i prepare all my applications and submit before the R2 due which is like 6 weeks now, except GMAT and then take my GMAT later like 8-10 weeks from now. Will that work out fine? What are the consequences?

Please advice...., will my applications with out GMAT score be in wait list? or rejected? , Please explain.....

I think you maybe running the risk of getting your application rejected. If I were you, I would not take that chance. But I am not an expert and it would be best if some admission consultant commented on this.

Your GMAT score is required for your application to be complete. Therefore, your application would be considered in Round 3, assuming that by then you had reported your GMAT score. In any case, I would advise against submitting an incomplete application.

Thanks for your valuable advice. I guess i will go for R3 then. But how late is R3, considering i am a foreign applicant , however i have worked last 5 years in the US. What are the risk and chances from the R3 perspective. Although i don't target to Elite schools, but i like to be between like top 5-20 per say.

Thanks in advance

There has been plenty written about the perils of Round 3. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but Round 3 is like one of the rings in Dante's inferno: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inferno_(Dante) A place of heart break and eternal suffering. Unless your profile is exceptional and exotic and you are one of the luckiest people you know, you'd be joining a game that is pretty much already over.

Ok, Please have your take on this,
I hate to bother you again, but i do not want to give up my chances, i have strong desire for 2011.
I think I want to take GMAT and also applications to go together. Take GMAT in 4 weeks also write essays at the same time. I am sure I can hit 700 in GMAT. I will target below listed schools which have late R2 deadlines. ( If I can take a shot on, and complete in time i can make it to Harvard which is 11-jan-2011)

I have 10 years in SAP ERP and solid 5 years in US, half of that as team lead. Other half as senior consultant. My only, could be red flag is my age. I will be 34 by the time of application results.
Considering my career and personal life has changed in the past 5 years in the US ( in India right now), the things I went through , I have strong desire for MBA and for fall 2011. I mean I can write decent essays.

NYU: Stern --> 15 Jan 2011
Penn State: Smeal --> 1 Feb 2011
Boston University: --> 5 Jan 2011
Boston College: --> 15 Jan 2011

Again if I happen to slip out, that I have really valid reasons late applications. What chances I hold, keep me on the positive side.

Apprecite your help
