Question about GMAT score [#permalink] New post 15 Sep 2010, 16:46
Columbia requires that I upload a soft copy of my GMAT score. Is it okay if I block out the section on where my scores is submitted to. I just don't want Columbia to see where else I may be applying. I am thinking that when GMAC releases my score to each school, it will not disclose to each of the schools where else my score is submitted to. So this is kept confidential. But if this information is released to all the schools that my score got reported to, then I just don't want to block out the section, since Columbia is going to find out regardless.

Does anyone how this works?

You'll only draw attention to the fact you're applying to other schools and it comes across as being deceptive. It seems like a losing proposition. Columbia surely knows you're going to apply to other schools.

Thanks for the feedback.
Columbia knows for sure that I will be applying to other schools, it is just what other schools I am applying to. Because if the schools on my list are lower ranked, or of equal rank, it may affect whether or not they would extend an offer?

The only way I see it actually affecting you is if it's the highest school on your list they may be less inclined to give you a scholarship (since if you get in, you're almost certainly going to go). But 1) I find that unlikely since it would require that they dig quite a lot for that information and 2) they'll probably have a pretty good idea if you're likely to get into Harvard Stanford or Wharton. If you're not applying to those schools, it's probably because Columbia is a stretch.

If you're really concerned about this, then why don't you only upload the first page of the score report? That has all of the relevant info CBS needs. Personally I uploaded the whole thing.

If I were you, I'd upload just the first page. That's what I did and Columbia doesn't seem to have a problem with it.

you dont want to draw unnecessary attention. if you didnt black out they might just glance at it and go whatever but if you did then they would notice it and prob stop and think why you did it - is it higher ranking schools than columbia etc.

shaselai,
the other schools on my lists are of equal ranking, or higher(hbs).
It really depends, the higher ranked school may or may not work against me.

from my apps i either left it blank or put down lower ranked schools to show that this school is my "top choice" since it is clearly the "toughest".

Very sneaky of Columbia. Dislike. I second the previous posters and say upload the first page only if that's an option. A bit of a moot point though really, since they'll probably ask during your interview anyway.
