Hey,

I was just wondering what is the significance of a business school sending an emails me. After I took my gmat, I did not send my scores to any school, but a number of schools sent emails inviting me to visit, sit in on chats, etc. Of these schools one of them I would be ecstatic to get into. Is it like undergrad, where they just send information to all candidates with standardized test scores above a certain score, and it essentially not really mean anything? Or is it more meaningful?

Thanks!

To my knowledge they are simply sending emails to people with an GMAT above a certain score -- unless of course you signed up with the school for something, in which case they are following up on your interest.

Best,
Linda
