The statistics of class of 2012 shows that the middle 50% range of GMAT is 650-770. I think Wharton is kind of a GMAT whore.
Sorry to be blunt but I think you re not looking at the data but you re only looking at one part of the data.
25% of the Wharton students scored 770+ could mean that Wharton is a gmat whore. But if you re looking at the full range, you see that 25% of the students scored below 650... These figures alone should make you tick.
If you compare them with HBS who has a middle 50% of 700-760 .. Who s the real gmat whore now ?
10% of Booth students scored below 660 , 12% of the Kellogg students scored below 640, and Wharton has 25% of its students below 650...Wow.
The conclusion is that Wharton has probably the most spread GMAT range of all top MBAs.
Data shows that Wharton is the opposite of an gmat whore, it s an MBA where 25% of the class scored below 650, and where your gmat score could be compensate by a lot of things. 200 Wharton students scored sub-650.
HBS with 75% of its students at 700+ could be seen as a gmat whore, but taking in account the class size, it also mean that 230+ students got in with sub-700 scores.
