Hi gmatkeith, its tough to evaluate your profile without a GMAT. Strive for something on the higher side to compensate for your GPA. Would be helpful to get more qualitative info re WE and EC, hobbies etc

Good to see this post!

I am aspiring for 2019 intake as well. Just gave my GMAT (710) and started looking at the application process.

I hope I can get the application in by January first week - seems tough though :)

Looking forward to more insights here.

Average GMAT is 680-690 for Booth PT. GMAT/GRE is one part of application, but I'd encourage you to be within the 80% range (620-740). Since your GPA is great, I think lower GMAT/GRE might do it, but still you need to raise it.

Use the tool to convert your GRE scores to GMAT: https://www.ets.org/gre/institutions/ab ... rison_tool. When I plugged in 304 GRE, it is ~510 GMAT.

I have not heard back. They said 4-6 weeks from the date of submission. Today marks 4 weeks.

I felt the interview went really well. They have an interview guide who talks with you prior to the interview, and the main interview which is conducted by a current student. The day after, the interview guide sent a personal email thanking me for coming in and said they looked forward to reviewing my application.

Anxiously awaiting results
