school selection for scores [#permalink] New post 05 Jan 2004, 20:45
Hi, i'm taking the gmat in a week. Is it true that you have to pick the schools that you want your score sent to before you take the test, or is there a way that i can take the test, find out my score, and then pick the schools?

You have to pick the schools before the test. But, you have an option to cancel your scores before you see them. If you see the scores, they will be in added to your GMAT record.

Hope this helps

No, that's wrong. You do not have to select any schools to send the score to before you take the test. You can choose to request a score report afterward, although it will cost you to do so (I think you get 4 free score reports if you request them before you start the test).

You can only cancel the score before you see your score. If you accept the score but haven't selected any schools, they'll still see that score if you retake and send the scores then. They see the 4 or 5 most recent test scores from the previous 5 years.

thanks! [#permalink] New post 06 Jan 2004, 00:03
Thank you for the replies. There is no way I'm going to cancel the exam before I see the score so I will just go ahead and pay to send the report after the test (if I'm satisfied with the score of course). Also, I don't have to worry about retaking as I took the gmat once before and got a semi-satisfactory score, and thus have no plan on taking it again after this one next week. Thanks again!

School reports after the fact cost $25 per school.

I'm almost positive the gmat ETS bulletin said only your 3 most recent scores are included in score reports.

I think you can select upto 5 schools.

Also one more thing ...

You CAN select to send scores to Universities for free AFTER the GMAT but ONLY to those schools that are NOT LISTED in the computer list and if you have selected less than 5 schools to send the scores to before the GMAT.

Hope that is clear enuff.

No risk involved. [#permalink] New post 06 Jan 2004, 23:32
There is no risk in sending the scores to any school. Almost all of them will look at your highest score, if you take the GMAT again.

Also, if you apply to a school, you will be required to send a score report anyway. The score report will list the last five times you took the test. In other words, inevitably any school will see all of your scores, but they will generally consider the highest.
