GMAT scores older than 3 years - unacceptable? [#permalink] New post 26 Feb 2008, 09:44
Now we all know that according to the GMAC, a test taker's GMAT scores remain valid for 5 years from the date of the test? I recently heard someone from Manhattan GMAT make the claim that there were some schools that did not accept GMAT scores older than 3 years. MGMAT usually knows what they're talking about, but in this case I couldn't get them to name the schools that actually did this.

I've tried to look more into this but haven't come up with a reliable answer. Does anyone here know more about this? Or have first-hand experience of an adcom requesting a retake of a GMAT taken more than 3 years ago?

My MBA plans have been put on the backburner for a series of financial and personal reasons, but I like to map out worst case scenarios (!) and would love to get an authoritative answer on this.

Thanks.

Most, if not all, of the schools I've been interested in accept GMATs up to 5 years old. This info is usually available on a school's website, most often the FAQs.

Just a FYI, my scores were 4 years old when I applied (took GMAT 10/2003, applied R1 11/2007). I applied to several top schools, interviewed at several, and got accepted to a couple. Was not a problem anywhere.

Gary - thanks for that. +1.

Do you mind sharing what schools you applied to? No need to disclose where you were or weren't accepted if you prefer not to do so.
