I think you have to do it before you take the actual test.

No. After the exam there is a charge of 35$ per university

The guy at the testing center told me I could choose the schools after the exam, so I didn't plug in the school codes before starting. No big deal I thought. After a week of back and forth emails with GMAC, they told me that I would have pay to the $35 for each school regardless of what their 'testing center professional' told me. Pretty frustrating seeing that you get $175 worth of free reports if you choose your schools prior to starting. They also ended up acting like a bunch of assholes in their correspondence with me, which didn't help me feel any better about giving them an extra $70 for something I could have taken care of in 2 minutes before the exam.

If you don't know which schools you are going to apply to (I wasn't sure either), just pick the 5 most likely candidates and if you have to add a few later, so be it.

Here's the best advice you will get:

PICK 5 SCHOOL'S on test day, regardless if you know where you want to go or not. You should pick the 5 most likely schools you'd like to attend. The reason for this is that those 5 choices are FREE on test day, but will cost you money per school anytime after test day. You will make you choices before the test, on your computer. These schools will not be sent official reports, instead they will only be granted access to your official reports. Sooooo if you end up applying they will have access, if you don't end up applying they will never take a look. It's as easy as that. Pick 5 schools on test day. If you don't pick 5 schools then you are wasting a free opportunity to make your score reports available to the schools you might attend.

There is absolutely no disadvantage to picking schools for this. And if you end up having to take the GMAT again, you can list those schools again.

I plan on only applying to 1 school? WHO CARES, PICK 5 SCHOOLS
I might take the test again... WHO CARES, PICK 5 SCHOOLS
But I'll just send them later... PICK 5 SCHOOLS, ITS FREE WHEN YOU TAKE YOUR TEST
I don't know where I want to go... PICK 5 SCHOOLS ANYWAYS, YOU PROBABLY HAVE 5 IN MIND YOU MIGHT ATTEND

Get the gist?

GOOD LUCK :)

Hi paata01,

If you don't choose the schools at the time of the exam, you will have to pay for them.
Having said so many people choose not to select schools the day of the exam to avoid them having your score if things don't go great.

Best,
