Hi,

I am an engineering student in India, and have just finished the pre-final year of my Bachelors program. I plan to give my GMAT by the end of July 2013, in time for the Indian School of Business' deadline for their Young Leaders Program which is 7th August. What I would want to know is that there would be 4 more schools that I can select to whom I wish to send my official GMAT scores, but since I would be graduating in June 2014 and then I'd like to gain some work experience (If I do not get into ISB YLP) before I finally apply to those schools, would I have to re-send my official scores to the schools, right before I start the application process? I do understand that the GMAT scores have a validity of 5 years, but if suppose I do work for a period of 2 years, then my scores would be 3 years old. Would that have any affect on my chances of getting accepted?

Thank you!

Many aspiring MBA's take the GMAT towards the end of or right after their undergraduate education (when, according to GMAC, average scores are highest) and then "bank" them while they gain necessary work experience. This is well known - and even encouraged - by b-schools. Accordingly, most schools will open up a file on you when they receive your GMAT scores and then hold it for the validity period of the scores. You can double check this with the specific schools in which you're interested, but this procedure has been reported consistently by admissions reps from elite schools who have sat on panels I've moderated. Good luck on the GMAT!
