I am new to the GMAT Club, and taking my first venture into the wonderful world of the process (ha ha). I did have a question regarding the interviews. I have been doing my research on schools, and the Application Process and Requirements for the majority of the programs mention the interview, however, they do not state if the interviews are mandatory (meaning-every applicant who is even considered will have to go through an interview). I guess my question is-is there any chance of someone getting accepted without an interview?
Thank you, and I look forward to being a frequent visitor to the GMAT Club!
Short answer - No, I don't know of any programs in the top 30 that ever admit anyone without interviewing them first.
Some schools let you schedule your interview without being invited, others have invite-only interviews.
