Just wondering what the record is... looks like Hades is going to break it. Has anyone from GMATClub received a 790 or 800?

There have been a few: 99-ile-clubbers-add-your-name-to-the-list-77041.html

Though I don't think we have anyone with 800, but here is an interesting discussion about uber-high scores and how many people get rejected with those high scores. I think the bottom line from the GMAT scores is that GMAT is really a Pass/Fail when it gets to Top 10 schools. It is a great tool to have a super-high gmat on your resume if you are applying to an IB place or Consulting company that cares about it, but other than that, it won't help much in Top 10.

Here is another discussion about 800:

Finally here is Pelihu debrief who got V51 - a rare score

Could a GMAT score too high actually hurt the applicant? Given the number of dings for 770+ scorers, one might think that the applicant was too bookish or something. Oh well... catch 69/catch 22

I don't think any school penalizes an applicant for a high GMAT score. I know few GMATClub members with 770+ GMAT scores who got WL'ed or dinged from schools. They were dinged for various reasons other than GMAT score, such as age, fit, goals, UG GPA, etc.

The highest score I have seen on these forums was a 790. I think that person takes the test every year. On another website, Beat The GMAT, someone scored an 800.

Wow, that's an insane score. But then again, if you want to start a GMAT prep company, then an 800 score might be a good idea (for credibility).

it was already alluded to on this post, but a lot of high scoring people have gotten rejected from top schools. the most egregious example is stanford, who i believe rejected all applicants with an 800 last year or the year before (i forget which)

If you guys browse last year's admit/ding profiles, there is a username (I think LUGO?) who got an 800, applied only to the Wharton JD/MBA program, and was dinged, I think. (Details are fuzzy). Without knowing much about his story (except that he was already incredibly well-educated and accomplished in the City of London), it sounds like he might've been a bit too old, or that the MBA probably wasn't going to add much to a guy who had gotten this year without needing it.

So is the GMAT score something of a filter rather then something that gives you extra points if you score high?

At the top 10-15, yes; the conventional is "a low score can keep you out, a high score won't get you in". It is arguably a necessary condition; certainly not a sufficient condition.

I've still never been able to find evidence of that. I think it's an interweb [strike]myth[/strike] parable.

That's reassuring, I guess even a perfect score isn't always sufficient to get into a top 10.

Haha, I posted in that thread bb. I still haven't seen any source for the information and believe more in the moral and message than the story itself. But your second link was very interesting, thanks!
