Questions about GMAT Percentile Rankings on Score Reports [#permalink] New post 18 Mar 2012, 05:13
Hello,

I am confused as to how the GMAT is factored into the MBA admissions decision.

1. Do applicants self-report scores, but not percentile rankings for the Quant / Verbal section?
2. Do applicants self-report scores and percentile rankings?

If case #1 is correct, do MBA admissions committees only look at the Quant / Verbal percentile after the admissions decision is made?

Basically, my question comes down to - lets say I score a 700, with 80th-81st percentile raw scores in both the quant and verbal sections. However, I don't apply for an MBA program until 2016, and by that time my raw quant / verbal sections would put me in the 75th percentile range. Would I be hurt by this? I do realize that the 80 / 80 split is important.

#1 is not correct.

When you apply, you will self report both your quant and verbal scaled score (aka Q48, V41) and then you ALSO self report the percentiles (aka Q80%, V92%). So your percentiles stay with you for the life of the GMAT scores (5 years). The percentiles do slowly change over time, but the adcoms will give you credit for your percentiles that you recieved when you took the test.

Once you are admitted, you will have to send your school the scores (aka give them access online through MBA.com for I think $20) or if you chose the schools to which you applied to recieve the scores when you took the test, then they will double check to make sure your self reporting was true.

I hope this answers your question
