It's interesting that I'm now talking to you through two mediums (facebook & gmatclub). I only know who you are because of your gmatclub name and the book you wrote that I purchased. I've never heard anyone give a number for the question that I'm about to ask. What is your educated guess for what that general floor of GMAT scores is for URM's? I'm in a similar situation as the original poster but I'm also an AA male. So I’m particularly interested in the point you raised above. After months of self study and several practice tests I took the real thing and got a 660, which isn’t bad but I want to do better so that I not only am in the running for where I want to go but also receive as much non-loan financial aid as possible. I start a prep class with mgmat tomorrow and my goal is to move 50 points.
Wish me luck.
