Question on the additional essay [#permalink] New post 20 Feb 2014, 08:38
Hi,
I had a question for an additional essay for Kellogg part-time program. I have scored a 640 in my GMAT and am applying for part-time MBA program at Kellogg.
Would it be a good idea for me to write an additional essay explaining why and how this will not affect my performance at Kellogg by highlighting my previous achievements?

Hi Sam1,

I would not recommend you use an additional essay to address your GMAT score. For your GMAT, it's important to remember that on your MBA application your highest GMAT score is self-reported. For this reason, there isn't any harm in taking the test again, as admissions teams will focus on your best score. We normally recommend that applicants who believe they can improve their score by 30+ points take the exam again. MBA.com provides 2 free official GMAT exams and we also provide free GMAT tips here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/test-prep-hub/

If you'd like, we also provide free 30 minute phone consultations here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/contact/

Cheers,
Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
