It's often said that applicants should worry about "the middle 80" rather than average when looking at the GMAT scores for various schools.

However I wonder if the middle 80 is a straightfoward as it first appears. Presumably supply and demand would mean that someone from an oversubscribed background (consultants, bankers etc.) would need a higher GMAT than someone from a less well represented industry.

Was wondering if anyone has any anecdotal evidence that this is the case? If so does anyone have any feeling for what differential there is between the industries?

For instance for a school with a mean GMAT of 680 and a middle 80 of 620 - 750 across the intake what would the middle 80 for consultants / bankers / engineeers be? What would it be for people with really unique backgrounds eg. art dealers, journalists etc.?

Would the difference be similar for all schools or would the gap be higher at more competitive schools? Say if the middle 80 for a consultant at H/S/W was 20 points higher than the class as a whole would that also be the case at a smaller school?
