The GMAC will send my GMAT score to 5 b-schools of my choice. When will I get the option of choosing the school and sending the score? Before the test or after I get the results?
One of the first things before the test begins is picking the 5 schools.
If the score is sent in May 2011, do I have to apply for 2012 - 13 session or will the score be valid for next 5 years?
Yes, it is valid for the next 5 years, but I think you may have to resubmit it in the year you are applying. (With that said, the scores are transmitted electronically, so perhaps not - check with Adcom)
