Impact of new gmat score on future applications [#permalink] New post 05 Jan 2005, 04:16
Hi,

I am planning to take a gmat in march to squeeze myself into a Financial Engineering program, but am not fully prepared in the sense I do not think I'm capable of hitting the 700+ mark right now. I've checked with the institution and they have informed me that they take into account working experience and other factors apart from the gmat score.

But my concern is if in the near future I retake my gmat again and score better, would my old gmat score penalise me when I apply for some other master programmes in future ?

Most MBA programs consider the highest score. Check with the financial engineering programs to be sure that they follow the same policy.

Good luck!

Almost all b-schools say they "count" the highest score, but they see the last 3 scores. At the same time, a lower score on the most recent test looks differnt than a higher score on the most recent test.
