I took my GMAT exam on 10/26/16. Got 700 but my GPA is 2.0. I am not sure about my chances. I selected the school in my GMAT school selection. Do I need to do anything else or just wait for their response?

Dear All,

I will be applying to DeGroote School of Business and have a question regarding the same. I have some knowledge about video essay, but some confusion regarding "written essay". Can you guys please help me with this?

1. Has written essay to be completed along with video essays or we get separate link for written essay?

2. Do I have to submit video essays and written essay together or I can submit these on different days.?

3. Do I have to wear formal clothes while submitting "Written essay " or this is offline?

I can shed some info regarding this , recently only i completed the video interview.

I hope you received a email regarding video interview.

using that link register yourself and practice few times with practice questions.

Once you feel confident , wear formal shirts and take the interview.

There a 4 qs, 3 video and 1 written, combine all it will not take more than 15 minutes maximum 30 minutes if you have low speed internet

I strongly advice take it in a single shot.

Qs are frequently asked only so need to worry.

For written you have 5 minutes time to write your response so it will not be a problem.

All the best
