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.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
