Minor GMAT Improvement - Should I send in the score? [#permalink] New post 19 Feb 2010, 13:38
I just re-took the GMAT and my score improved by 10 points from 660 to 670, not really that significant.

I have been waitlisted at Georgetown and interviewed at Ross and waiting on a couple of top 20 schools. I did send in an additional recommendation and a letter of interest into Georgetown.

What are your thoughts on sending in the updated score report to Ross and other schools? Would it make a difference?

If you are really passionate, you shouldn't leave any stone unturned. No matter it is useful or not, you should always give your best shot. Send your updated scores and always keep a convincing reason for what you do.

Hi balboa,

Although your score improved marginally, I think it's more important to focus on the fact that you put in the effort to improve it.

Schools waitlist you because they liked your application but aren't completely sure they can admit you. Think of a waitlist as an invitation to demonstrate your interest as well as any improvements in your profile that make you an even stronger candidate than since you applied. In your case, the GMAT score might not have improved by much, but you put in the effort. Position your improved score as a demonstration of your strong interest in the program. Same thing for the additional letter of recommendation, as well as a personal interest letter that shows both strong interest and profile improvements. In fact, don't send it just to the schools you have been waitlisted at; send it to the schools you are waiting on too. An interested and highly qualified candidate is every school's dream!
