Do you have good ECs? What is your work ex? Any issues with essays or LORs do you think? Those are good stats and I regularly get in applicants with stats like that so curious if just roll of the dice or if something was wrong.

Good luck!

Best,
Scott

Do you think the interview didn't go well or there was something with the application that may not have been up to par? CBS is filled with folks like you (or with lower stats) hence the question. Good luck on other apps. I am guessing something needs reworking, perhaps the essays?

Best,
Scott

Hi guys have a quick question regarding the application.

This is actually a question for the admissions team but they're closed until Wednesday and I probably shouldn't be waiting until then to submit my application. I was wondering if you or any of you might have an insight into GMAT score retake option for CBS application.

CBS application form has an option which lets me update my GMAT score in case I want to retake. However there seems to be a bit of a catch. There are two options on the application form regarding this

1.) Explicitly state the date on which you intend to retake the test.-

Selecting this option that will result in the admissions team not reviewing the application until the retake date. I've asked this repeatedly and admissions team has confirmed the same. My question is whether this means a) getting behind the queue in terms of both review and decision OR b) whether they'll give me credit for the fact that I applied sooner even though they'll review my application on/after retake date.

2.) Select not retaking the test and potentially lose a chance to upgrade my score. Any chance I can update this and still submit my updated score a week or two later anyway?

The main issue is CBS gets nearly 30% of the entire applications in the Jan 02-04 window and if I'm being reviewed after the retake date I think it might be more punitive than submitting the score of 720.

Any chance anyone might be able to advise on this issue? I'm really out of depth here and no one seems to be sure. Thanks
