good time to give GMAT ? [#permalink] New post 18 Jun 2006, 11:52
Hi everyone,

I am a new member here. I have a different kind of question. I recently graduated with a MS in EE and have 1 year of intern experiance. I have been planning for a while to get a MBA after 2/3 years.
Is it a good idea to give the GMAT now ? Scores are valid for 5 years. Right now I feel that I am still in the school momentum, so studying and giving an exam won't be a problem. So, I was toying with the idea of giving GMAT after 3 months.
Or are there any benefits if I give the exam later ?

What do you think ?

I know there are some colleges, like Indian Institute of Management, that will only accept GMAT scores which are 2 or fewer years old. Most colleges, however, will accept older scores up to 5 years.

If you have certain colleges in mind that you want to apply to, check their admission requirements to see valid gmat test taking dates.

I think you'd be fine taking it now. Very few schools require a score that's newer than the 5-year validity period. Definitely a good idea to take it when academics are fresh...you'll still be in good testing mode and won't have to study as much.

Agree. Honestly I could probably have done better my senior year of high school on this thing than I did now.

But... do check into the school requirements... If your mind is deadset on one school, its worth finding out.

I do not have any specific school in mind right now. But I have started to look at variuos rankings and school profiles.
Thanks for the advice.
