I am applying to the DeGroote MBA co-op program and got a score of 500 on my first trial. I was wondering if they will consider other factors such as my extra-cirricular, high GPA and work experience instead of only focusing on my GMAT score.

Absolutely! GMAT is the easiest thing you could do to improve your application. You could improve your GMAT score from 500 to 700+ within several months, but you can't change your experience as well as your GPA.

However, a very low GMAT could hurt your application. I think that 500 is too low and the admission could think that your logic is weak. This means no good to you. Try to improve your GMAT score then.

Hi Gohil,

Although a business school admission is a holistic process, GMAT does play a vital role in helping admissions team evaluate your candidature. You should certainly try to improve your GMAT score. A high GMAT score not only increases your chances of admissions at a business school but also may help you get a scholarship. Try to give one more attempt and see if you can improve your score by a few points.

Hope this helps. All the best!

Hi Gohil,

The Admissions process involves a variety of 'pieces' - so the answer to your immediate question is YES - Programs consider more than just an applicant's GMAT Score. That having been said, the GMAT is an exceptionally important part of the application (and often the first thing that Admissions Officers look at). Since it sounds like you might be interested in improving on this initial 500 score, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?
4) What were the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for this 500?

Goals:
5) What is your goal score?
6) What is the application deadline for this specific Program?
