I’ve come across a lot of GMAT data on here, and I understand that the average GMAT score for enrolled applicants at the top B-Schools is dramatically higher than it was in 2000. Does anyone have Comparable GPA data? What does the GPA trend at Harvard/Stanford/Wharton etc. look like?

Hi abhimahna,

I'm looking for GPA trends. So for ex, what was the average GPA at the top schools in 2000 vs now, not rankings. I'm just wondering if they've risen at the same pace as the GMAT scores have.

Hi TippingPoint93 ,

I am not sure whether we have any such data but I can definitely tell you that due to the increase in competition, this would have 100% increased. Remember GPA is an equivalent factor in evaluation of the profile so it's obvious that it has to increase.

As an example you can dig up some old numbers around that time period for Kellogg and you will see a dramatic increase. From
Personal experience i know Kellogg just in the last decade has upped its avg GMAT score by +20 pts
