"How many times have you received a total GMAT score?"

I'm a bit confused with this question, mainly because I cancelled one of my exams...

Exam 1: accepted the score, but did not send to Booth
Exam 2: cancelled score
Exam 3: accepted the score, sent to Booth

Can anybody advise me on this?

Also, in the instructions, it also mentions: "Please have your official score report(s) sent directly from the test provider." Does that mean I need to send my Exam 1 score to Booth as well (despite the fact that the score is lower than that of Exam 3...)? I'm very confused :dazed


If you cancelled a score, then you don’t have to report it. So for how many times, i would just put 2 times. As for sending the score report, your third exam score report will have all previous accepted scores on it, so you only need to submit the most recent score report. If you put Booth down as one of the 5 free schools when you took the exam, then you don’t need to send it again as they should have received your score report already. Good luck on your application!

For the booth moments essay, is it a presentation (ppt) OR essay? Will admissions accept an essay with a few photos in them?

Completely fine to do an essay with photos in it. Many people have done it in previous years and have received admits.

You do not need to count the canceled score, so your answer to "How many times have you received a total GMAT score?" is 2.

You do not need to send your exam 1 score. That score appears on the exam 2 report along with your exam 2 score.

I did an essay with pictures in it last year when I was waitlisted (with much lower gmat though) and this year I did a power point but basically it was an essay with a different paragraph on each slide. Go with whichever way allows you to best express yourself and your story.

Hey all - looking for some perspective on the text fields in the application.

In the Employment section, there's 700 characters for "Job Description" for each employer/position - should this be a description of day-to-day duties or should this be focused on accomplishments, like in the resume? Or maybe a bit of both? :) Curious to know what others are doing!

Thanks!

apologies if this has been asked before.... but does anyone know how long it takes for Booth to list your GMAT score report as "received"?

I sent my scores 2 weeks ago but my application checklist still lists it as "awaiting". Will my application not be reviewed if this isn't received by the 3rd?

I went with job description and day-to-day duties.. specially since there's a field outside for major awards etc.

You should be fine with self-reporting scores, and your application will be reviewed with those.
Generally schools need the "verified" official scores at the time they offer admission.

When, how, and on what time frame do interview decisions get released? Is there a certain deadline for R2 when they end?

stoiczoan, thanks very much for the perspective! I'm taking your approach as well - 700 characters seems like so much compared to some other schools' text fields!

Hey lclight
Booth recently sent out an email specifying that all decisions (interviews/dings) will be sent by Jan 26th.
Generally, they start sending out interview invites (by email / through portal) the Tuesday or Wednesday of that week. So it may start on 23rd/24th Jan and will continue up to Fri,26th..

My verified score only went up today. I ordered my scores about 2 weeks ago as well.



Just submitted my application. Good luck to all!

Good luck! Not sure if you saw this article on the Booth homepage, but it could be relevant to you given your military WE.

Just submitted my Booth MBA application very very last second. But it doesn't show complete, as it is waiting for my GMAT score report. I only just requested GMAT score to be sent two hours before the deadline.... Does it mean I didn't make it to R2?
Can anyone please help?

I think you're fine. They only need you to self report when they review. However, they'll need your full GMAT score report before acceptance.

Cutting it close, are we? ;) Unless Booth is different from the other schools, I'm pretty sure you're fine with just the unofficial scores. Hopefully someone corrects me if I am wrong.

I did. Thank you. Unfortunately, as a reservist with only 2 years of active/mobilized time, I don't qualify for Yellow Ribbon. Good to see Booth is helping out vets though.
