Dear Folks,

Can people share the minimum GMAT scores that the members of the GC got and still were accepted to one of the top 10 Business Schools in the US?

Try going to the school's webpage and look at its class profile. It will give you the range.

I wouldn't be surprised if people got in with sub-600 scores. Think of all the reasons that an adcom would add someone to the admit pile. I remember for undergrad they listed the 25th and 75th percentiles, so you really didn't get the range. Much easier to hide the football players that way, am I right?

Thanks for making my day, vandygrad11. That cracked me up.

Well I don't think business schools will ever publish their minimum GMAT scores.

Fine, let's play devil's advocate and imagine that business schools publish their minimum GMAT scores. I won't be surprised if 5-10 years down the road the average GMAT score for Stanford would be 790 and the minimum GMAT score would be 730.

Actually, one of my bucket lists when I go to business school in the future (2-3 years down the road) would be to interact with people with sub-600 scores. I want to know read their essays and recommendations forms.

I hope someone from this forum could share his experience. It'll be entertaining, to say the least.

I like using this as a reference. Doesn't display minimums but has the 10th and 90th percentile ranges for all the good schools. Pretty much need to be in or above these ranges for GPA and GMAT to stand a chance, unless you've got amazing other application segments or are high above the range in the other statistic to compensate.

It doesn't really matter if you are from under represented Minor,country,section of society etc. But if you are Indian,Chinese,Engineering Major,IT-male then make sure you have that 730+ to be safe.

Don't get excited looking at the class profile,bcz stats. hide more than they reveal.e.g Tuck School says the range is from 570-infinite but that 570 might be President of Some under represented country,not exactly but you got my point.

Just my 2 ¢.

Couldn't agree more :)

They are outliers. They are the Mother Theresas, the Gandhis of this world.
