Not sure where to post this but I think it would be amazing to have this type of system for this forum!?!

Anyone else?

Whereas for law-school, GPA and LSAT are the main factors (reason why you can draw a \ line across the admits and dings), for b-school GPA and GMAT are only part of the picture (not even the primary part). Admissions411 has self reported GPA and GMAT if you want to take a look. But the numbers are all over the place. If you look through the admit/ding section, you can get an idea of how arbitrary b-school admission is. People often get in top 5 (sometimes w/ ) and get dinged/WLed at top 15/20. Some people get in with sub-700 and average GPA, while others get dinged with 750+ and 3.8+ to the same school. Last edited by asimov on 12 Apr 2010, 20:43, edited 1 time in total.

Would probably need a 3D graph for b-school admissions (WE axis?). I still think there would be some value to the GPA/GMAT system but definitely not as much as law school at all. I think the accepted/waitlisted/rejected system on that board where users state where they have applied and their admissions results is really amazing so that mods don't have to update threads...etc. _________________ F2013 R1: Stanford F2011 R1: Stanford F2010 R2: Stanford, Cal, UCLA, USC, UCSD($$$) GPA: 3.5+ B.S., J.D.

I am happy to try building something like that and sponsor this initiative. However, as mentioned, this has been tried a few times before and things such as school fit, quality of essays and quality of work experience often have a greater weight than GPA or GMAT in top schools. I would be thrilled to try this concept as long as we can address the qualitative factors. Posted from my mobile device _________________ Founder of GMAT Club Just starting out with GMAT?

Users could click on each school and see which users applied and where they are going...etc. In addition, a simple GPA/GMAT chart could give users ONE level of analysis and there could be a *NOTE that mentions how the essays, EC's, WE...etc are extremely important for b-school and the GPA/GMAT chart is really not all inclusive. I'm pretty sure someone out there is going to try and build a similar system for business schools and I think with the wealth of information on this site, there is no reason why it shouldn't be the gmatclub bb wrote: Thank you very much for pisting this suggestion.

You are welcome!

I can tell that I won't be able to jump on this right away but definitely something that will make sense sooner or later.
