Unofficial GMAT score report - Schools see other programs [#permalink] New post 02 Aug 2013, 03:48
Dear all,

INSEAD and IMD both asked me to send my Unofficial GMAT score report along with my application, since I took the GMAT only 2 weeks before the application deadline. I scored a 710 and of course I am happy to send the unofficial report.

Now I just realized that the report mentions all schools that I have my GMAT scores sent to (there are 3 on mine).
This means that IMD will know I also applied to INSEAD (or at least had my scores sent there) and vice versa.

IS THIS A DESASTER? Will they conclude that I am not a 100% dedicated to the application of their own programme?
Now for IMD it is already too late, they even required a paper version of the unofficial report which is already in Switzerland. But for INSEAD I could still black out the other schools on the report. Would you recommend me to do that? Or will it look strange and I should simply disclose the other schools I apply to?

Thanks for your thoughts!

lol applying to more than one school is not disloyal - you'd be silly NOT to apply to multiple schools. They don't care.

Agreed - if anything, it works in your favor.

One thing a lot of applicants forget is that you're not only competing for spots, they're competing for candidates. It's a two way street. In your interviews they will often ask where else you've applied.

Think of it this way - you're in the market for a new car. You REALLY want a BMW so you go to the BMW dealer and go, "This is it, this is what I want!" - how hard do you think s/he will try? But if you went and said "I'm really interested in a BMW but I'm also looking at Audi and Mercedes..." - well now you've turned up the pressure a little bit!

Honestly - it doesn't matter at all so don't sweat it.

I'm not sure that schools can see other schools you applied to on your GMAT score report, good question... I know this website has some questions and answers regarding the GMAT, take a look here: http://aringo.com/ClientInfo/GMATandTOEFL.htm

I have noticed that schools like Kellogg and LBS actually ask for what other schools you have applied to. This definitely presents a moral hazard for some people and I would not be surprised if people don't answer completely truthfully. In actual fact, I doubt it makes much of a difference.
