What is a "good" integrated reasoning score? [#permalink] New post 03 Oct 2012, 03:00
Hi all,

I just recently took the GMAT and scored a 720 (Q48 V41), which is acceptable; however, I only received a 5 on IR (52nd percentile). I'm trying to target the top 10 schools. I received an undergraduate GPA of 3.9 from an Ivy League and an employed at a top 20 consulting firm, and will be applying ~3 years from now.

Will this low score hurt my chances or is it similar to the essay where there is a lower expectation?

Thanks,
Jason

There isn't too much historical data available yet for top bschools to place a heavy emphasis on your IR score. Your score of 5 is considered "good enough" - generally the 5 or 6 range is where you want to be.

The focus is still the 800 score. For top 10-15 bschools, you want to stay above 50% percentile for your IR score as you have done. Just don't slack off and put in a sub-par performance on IR - unless you have a special agreement with your school that specifies you surpass a 650 on your GMAT. In those unique situations, your IR score won't matter.

But for the most part - you got a pretty ideal score. Great score and just good enough IR - that's exactly where you want to be. Congrats!
