Well I did not have a great GMAT but a decent-ish profile to be honest. I also think that last year (and the years before but I think the uncertainty in increasing every year) it was HIGHLY random.

For example: I was rejected at Johnson (after WL) and Ross but interviewed at Haas.

Someone I know who got axed by Ross, Tuck and Kellogg, got into Haas with the Dean's fellowship.

So, you never know folks: hedge your risks.

Oh it wasn't that last year. 760 is I think as good as it gets. I got that in June this year. Thank god I don't have to worry about it again. But from what I have read and seen on the forums, 740+ seems to be the sweet spot for Indians.

It could be a generic question -

How do you guys read Average GMAT scores of the current class in a school? For example, Johnson's Average GMAT is 700. Going by this number, how low a score makes someone a competent candidate?

I'm sure someone getting 700+ is for sure a competent candidate, but someone getting close to 700, say 680,690, would they be competent as well?

Also, for sure, someone who gets ~650 is in the danger zone.

How to get that delta around Average GMAT?

Unfortunately it is much trickier than that. I know for a fact that GMAT averages are used to evaluate candidates in different demographics, so what is competitive for Indians might not be for LatAm applicants.

For example (don't quote me on this and this example is purely anecdotal) - Indian GMAT averages tend to be 20-30 points more than the whole school average while LatAm averages hover around 650-680 for most top schools. So the answer really is 'it depends"!

Hi souvik101990, Can you tell how much was your score with which you were waitlisted last year ? I have a 710 and a typical Indian engineer profile so just trying to evaluate my chances before I apply.
