GMAT retake / additional score report on admissions deadline date  [#permalink]

Hi everyone,

I have a very specific question in regards to how GMAT scores are being sent to BSchools and were hoping you guys would maybe have some insights:

I am currently applying to the Harvard 2+2 / Stanford Deferred Entry / Yale Silver Scholar programs. I took the GMAT yesterday (I know, quite late, but that wasn't in my control), and scored 710 but with Q 44 (50th) / V42 (96th) / IR 8 (92th). I accepted the score but did not enter the schools, yet. I would like to retake it as my practice quant scores were significantly better and 44 seems very borderline.
However, the last date left to retake it is the day before the Harvard deadline. Thus, my idea was that I would retake it, enter the schools on the day and accept the score if better and cancel if worse. If I'd have to cancel, I would order the additional score reports for the schools on the same day.
Intuitively, I would think this should work as the schools allow to take the test up to the admissions deadline date and the official GMAT scores will only be sent within a 20day timeframe. An additional score report is supposed to only take 7 days to be processed.
However, I have no clue whether this is true in practice as I don't know the underlying processes. I am worried that if I would have to cancel + order additional score report, the admissions system will just indicate a missing GMAT.

Does anyone have any idea regarding this?

Thank you very much in advance!

You could check with your schools, but you should be fine as long as you take the GMAT before your earliest deadline. You don't need to worry about when the score reports will be made available to your target schools (as long as you don't delay too much).

You're right about the "7 days to be processed bit". Under normal circumstances, you'll receive a confirmation of score report fulfillment within 3-6 days of ordering additional score reports.

I agree with @AjiteshArun; as long as you reach out to the schools beforehand to let them know what is going on, you should not have any problems. Furthermore, if you end up using the first score, I’m sure you can include your GMAT score on your application, and then they will see your official score report about a week later.

Feel free to reach out with further questions. Good luck!
