Previous scores? [#permalink] New post 14 Nov 2005, 15:24
Hi all,

Can someobdy please tell me how important are previous scores when applying to B schools?

For ex, if somebody gets 500 and raises to 700, how will that be viewed by the admissions?

thanks for your help

Most schools claim they only consider the highest score, and disregard anything else. Some take an average but from what I've heard, that's rare.

I think having a previous low score can cut both ways... on the one hand, you had a low score which may raise questions about your ability to handle the coursework - on the other hand you raised your score by a lot, which shows you're tenacious and face challenges head-on, blah blah.

I don't know how schools view it. Logic would dictate that it shouldn't matter.
