Hi viru, it all depends on your profile.

You can view the Duke details on this BW page
http://www.businessweek.com/bschools/ra ... fuqua.html

The avg gmat score is 690 there. You are 50 points below. The middle 80% range is 620-750. So you can still make it but strong academic record & great application essays will be the keys.

Best of luck & keep us posted.

sorry for the answer......but essays are necessary only if you haven't got enough gmat score ???

thanks :)



Everybody needs good essays to get into a top school. A high GMAT score can only get you so far at a top school. People with 800s and 790s get dinged at top schools all the time.

At a mid-ranked school, like below 30 on the US news list, a high GMAT score will go far and it will be very hard to get in if you're below their range for accepted students.
