It will probably be slightly more important in a few more years but I think the 2nd year will still be a little too young for the IR to become that important. It's probably going to be a score taht can only hurt you if you do poorly on but also won't help you if you do well on.

That sounds like it will turn into what the AWA section is now. You can get a 6 in the AWA, but that in no way makes up for a 500 on the GMAT, just like a 4 on the AWA would not take away from a 770.

GMAC just reported stats of a .55 correlation between your IR score and your Verbal/Quant score.

See: http://www.gmatpill.com/gmac-reports-ir ... rrelation/

So what this means is that someone who does well on the 800 score does not necessarily do well on IR.

Given that employers/schools have indicated that they do find IR skills important, our best guess is that the importance of IR will be greater with each successive year. More data will be available over time and this additional data will help employers/admissions committees make better sense of the IR score.

In the immediate future, however, the 800 score remains the main score.

We also believe that if schools ever start publishing IR scores in all the bschool rankings, then the IR score will become ultra competitive. In the immediate future, the 800 score still remains the main show.
