GMAT score 5-year expiration [#permalink] New post 22 Apr 2008, 10:35
Hi everyone,

I know that most schools will accept a GMAT score that is up to 5 years old, but does anyone know if this is looked down upon? Also, how is it measured. For instance, if you took the GMAT in March 2008 then apply to a school in September 2012 for enrollment in September 2013, does that count as expired?

The reason I ask is because, pending the outcome of an exciting/stressful day tomorrow, I might be putting off this B school thing to make a job switch. If I do so, I'll certainly put off school for at least 1.5-2 years, but maybe even farther. And with all the work I did on the GMAT (admittedly, not that much :lol: ), I don't want to lose my score. To be frank, I think I might have gotten a little lucky.

Thanks!

it has to be within 5 years at time of application, not matriculation

You will be covered if your GMAT score hasn't expired by the time you submit you application.

My score was already expired when I got my interview invite, nor did it prevent me from being eventually accepted.

I plan on doing my GMAT this summer, and I haven't even yet graduated from university. Most will probably say it's not wise, but I've read all the requirements from major universities and the dates are relevant to application, not matriculation, leaving me a perfect window of up to 4 years of work experience after university. For example, for this year's Harvard class, the test would have had to be taken after January 2003. Other universities are a bit less stringent; Stanford says that the GMAT must be valid on the date of the round deadline that you apply for.
