Hey guys,

looking for some input on my GMAT score and profile. Emory is my top target.

I just took the GMAT for the first time and got a 660 (Q42, V38). I did not have the best day I could have, but I had a realistic max goal of 670 given my preparation and CATs. Quant was weaker than I know I can get, but not by nuch. Profile:

Financial Analyst / Insurance Industry / Hispanic / non-native speaker / 4yr WE

I am a bit unsure about what to think of my 660. I know a lot of 700's apply to Emory, so I'd love any input.
- Would you recommend to take it again?
- Is it a futile effort with a 660?
- Would strong essays make up for the fact I dont have a 700?

I'd appreciate any input, as open ended as it could be. Thanks

Let's take these questions in a more natural order:

Not at all. The most recent intake had an 80% range of 606-740 with an average of 677. About 30-40% of your classmates would have had your score or lower.

gcarrion wrote:

Possibly. As could the other areas of your app. A below school average GMAT score should be accompanied by as strong as possible transcripts, essays, extras, recommendations and interview.

gcarrion wrote:

- Would you recommend to take it again?

If you feel you could do significantly better then certainly. The good news for you is that you have plenty of time to study and retake without sacrificing time on your essays so you're in a good spot here man.

Good luck to you.

thx for the input Rexman. That's the tempting factor, I know my max is a 680, MAYBE a 690; however, there's a 50/50 chance that if I retake I might get a lower score. I don't know if I lower score the second time around might affect my profile overall. Your words provide good input, im just trying to hear all perspectives before taking the GMAT again. Kudos mate

I think GMAT score makes more difference for international applicants. Your score is above average and I believe you do not need to retake the exam. If you have time to practice and motivation for a higher score, then why not. But the application process is tiring especially if you are working and planning to apply several schools. I would suggest that do not delay it if you decide to retake.

Good luck!

Thanks for the input

When will we start to hear something new from the adcom?

The final deposit deadline was yesterday, May 8th. It would seem that the admissions committee should have an idea of how the overall class is shaping up. I'm hoping that me and my fellow wait listed applicants will begin to start hearing their decisions very shortly. Good luck everyone!

Do you think so? In the feedback e-mail they told me that they will be considering the waitlisted applicants(international) until the end of May. Therefore we may wait until the end of the month. Anyway the stressful waiting is coming to an end. Please post here with the good news!

Yes, receiving decisions by the end of May seem very realistic. I would say that we should be getting our notifications within the next three weeks or so. I cannot say for sure, but that is just my feeling.

Congrats Rexman! I see you were accepted to Ross this week. Best of luck! Thanks as well for the notification, as I am on the wait list currently, and am eagerly waiting for one of those coveted spots.

Has anyone heard from Re Vera about completion of the process yet? Mine started 2 month ago, and the last time i heard from them was a month a go for information regarding HR phone number. They did say it was the only thing they needed to close my file, but haven't heard from them since...

Yesterday I called the adcom and got some information. She told me that they will release the decision regarding international waitlisted applicants in this or next week. It seems we will be hearing soon. She also said that there are some seats available. Best wishes to those who are still waiting!

Hello,

Can anyone provide some info on the 1 year program at Emory? Though this might not be the correct forum, I did not find any thread related to 1 year program.

Hello does any wait-listed one receive any news from the office?
The admission officer said international students will still be reviewed through end of May, and it's June already but my decision is still remained the same on OPUS...bad news is fine for me but please at least let me know the final decision....
