Hello everyone,

I was hoping those who have been through the process could help shed some light on the meaning of grade non-disclosure in theory and in practice.

1. As as starting point, can we clarify what the definition of grade non-disclosure is? Is it that employers are not allowed to ask for your grades AND students are not allowed to disclose them? or is it only the former? I'm not too clear on this.

2. Next, what do we mean by "grade" non-disclosure? just class grades, or also GMAT?

3. Lastly, how is seen in practice when it comes to investment banking recruiting? I hear they ask about grades and GMAT, so how does that reconcile? the policy is not followed by employers and students?

I searched around the forum and couldn't find info on these questions in specific so I was curious to hear from those who have been through the process. I am researching because I need to choose between two MBA programs that place very well into investment banking but one has GND (UVA Darden) and the other doesn't (Cornell Johnson). I have a low GMAT score (only 640). I will retake it before I start in August and believe I can reach closer to 700 (likely in the 670-680 range), at which point I think I'd be okay at most banks (except GS and EBs, but that's okay). However, I am looking for answers on the topic so I can make an informed decision on which program to attend absent of my GMAT retake, just in case I don't get a 680. Thanks everyone.

This is school by school, but generally recruiters are not supposed to ask and students don't have to tell, with the banks some will still ask so it is up to you to decide how you want to play it, most will disclose if the banks ask
2. Next, what do we mean by "grade" non-disclosure? just class grades, or also GMAT?
Grades not GMAT, your GMAT is still in play for GND schools
3. Lastly, how is seen in practice when it comes to investment banking recruiting? I hear they ask about grades and GMAT, so how does that reconcile? the policy is not followed by employers and students?
