I've been admitted to Tuck !
I think that's an excellent proof that the GMAT is not everything.
The story began a long time ago and I took the GMAT 4 times, scores ranging from 500 in 2004 to a final 640 last october 2005.

http://www.gmatclub.com/phpbb/viewtopic ... t=antmavel

With those scores I've been able to secure interviews with Wharton and Chicago for example, so don't forget that the GMAT is not everything and that you need to write good essays and to market yourself efficiently.
However I must clealy say that this forum has been incredibly helpful during my GMAT process and I've learnt a lot here, especially concerning the "tough questions".

My quest is now over but I would be very pleased to be an Gmat club ambassador for Tuck. Anyway, I'll stay around and try to offer my help whenever I can.

Congrats Antoine!!!!!!!! Tuck is an elite ivy-league school with connections galore in the Atlantic Northeast. Tuckee alumni span the globe, so get ready for the big leagues! I will never forget how hard you studied last fall to nail the 640, which clearly had a big impact on your admissions (especially the Q48). Please stick around and become an ambassador for other MBA aspirants.

AshikaP,

I believe in what I would call "minimum stats requirements" but except that I don't think any individual would ever gain admissions on stats only. I 'dont trust stats in order to juge potential admissions. Find the story of your life and career and bring it to to the Admissions Board :-D

However as you requested it please find the details below :
