What GMAT do I need for a top-50 program? [#permalink]  15 Aug 2010, 19:13
Applying for MBA this year!

I graduated in 2009 from a top university with a BA in English Literature (3.6 GPA). I have been working as a teacher in Korea since then. I will have TWO years of work experience by the time I start my MBA. My letters of recommendation will be from professors that LOVE me and will be VERY strong. Not looking for Harvard, just something around the 25s-50s. Would even be okay with something like Tulane.

It is virtually impossible to answer your question because there is no set GMAT score that will get you into a school. You could score a 680 and get accepted to a #22 school, but get rejected at a #48 school. The application process varies widely from school to school. Take the process in steps. 1) Get a good GMAT score. If you are very worried about this, pick 3 of the schools you are interested in, call an admissions counselor and tell them you're interested, that you're going to be taking the GMAT soon and wanted to set some goals for your studying and would like to know if they can tell you the 25th and 75th percentile of GMAT scores for admitted students to their programs. You can also find this stuff out yourself through US News & World Report. The subscription is worth every penny as you narrow down school choices. After you get through the GMAT and feel satisfied with your score, start working on the applications. Since you have been teaching in Korea, you will be able to show differences with your essay topics that others will not. Highlight these differences in your experience from other applicants. These differences should help your application stand out and be noticed.
