btw: there are also 650 Gmat scores who manage to go to Wharton... another evidence that GMAT is JUST one of the stuff to take into account


True, some 650's will get into Wharton, but at the same time, those guys had truly impressive applications in nearly every other metric, so it's still very unlikely that someone will get into Wharton with a sub 700 score.



Not true. All depends on class fit. I know someone with a 640 heading to Wharton, just had a semi-unique background (no amazing grades/work experience).

If you go to the Wharton admits list, then you can find Lugo there in ding without interview list. That's probably a disadvantage of a too successful career :(


There's honestly not much an MBA could've offered him at that point. You also have to wonderr what the tone of his essays was - hopefully he didn't exude that same "best of the best" one-app mentality from his essays.


Agree...but as head of a quant group at an investment bank he might be a good candidate for an Executive MBA at Wharton. Perhaps trying to move into senior corporate leadership (CEO, COO, etc).

There's so much more than work experience and scores that go into an application. Some people feel entitled to got to Wharton or Harvard with a 780 or 800 core. I think this can get them dinged pretty fast.


In my opinion, this guy got dinged because the MBA will not bring him much value (maybe he is a degree collector :) )

Yeah, but once you pass the 700 mark, you know the 750 won't matter all that much (not in comparison to your career history, your academic history, who you are and where you come from). There is a tendency of candidates (especially amongst Asian applicants) to think that a super high GMAT will cover any problem and magically get you in anywhere.

But there is no substitute for a continued proof of excellence, and frankly, just writing beautiful heartfelt challenging interesting essays.. you know, being a person!
