As an '09 grad, should I consider taking the GMAT in the near future? I know I need 3-5 years of experience to qualify for most programs and I hadn't really planned on heading back to school for a little while anyways. However, I've been given the advice (advice that I'm inclined to agree with) that I should take the GMAT while I'm still relatively fresh out of college; my only issue is that I don't really have a direction for my career or a preference for any particular programs yet and I'm wondering what the situation would be if I take the test without providing any names of my chosen schools for the score reports. Also, if I just pick a few that I think I might want down the road, will those schools hold onto that score for however long it stays valid or will I have to inevitably pay for the reports to be sent to them again when I'm ready to apply?

Thanks for time and the wisdom

If you have the money and time to prep for the GMAT now, by all means go for it. Why not? Who knows, you may end up wanting to apply to b-school sooner than you planned (i.e. 2-3 years down the road rather than 3-5, and b-schools are starting to trend younger).

As for whether you need to re-submit the scores to the schools years later when you apply -- I don't know offhand. But, even if you have to, I wouldn't use that as the reason for taking or not taking the GMAT now (it's not that much money if I recall). It really should come down to time -- whether you have the time to focus on prepping for the exam. Good luck!
