i guess that could happen,
the schools not only wanna get more highly competitive students, but they also wanna make sure if the applicants are taking them seriously.
like if you scored 760 on gmat but applied to one of these third tier schools, they would probably think you were applying to them for any uncertainties.

i think the difference between may be 770+ to 800 is luck
difference between 650-750 is may be some extra info & skills
difference between 550-650 is educational system(some country's average itself is very low...)
difference between 450+-550 is lack of practice..
below 400 may be negligence....

so gmat doesnt and cannot decide it all...

In future you may be many successful entreprenuers who are from poor educational system countries and do well in real world business....then people will start discounting gmat .....
so only time can tell

Interesting !!

Just a thought - May be those scoring 800 get a little over-confident about getting the admit and hence neglect other aspects of application (like essays ).

after my GMAT, i did call up my friends to say that I got a 800, and that I was the third person ever to get it.

Makes for a good story. Everyone should try it :d

I don't think anyone on GMATClub has scored 800 -- which is truly surprising!

What is the incentive anyone might have to really push a 770 or 780 score to 800 ? From all I have read so far, it doesnt seem to make a huge different to your admit once you are about 750 or above.

If lets say tomorrow, GMAC said anyone getting 790-800 gets 100% refund of test fee, I would imagine that number of 800 scorers will go up. Everything needs the right incentive in my opinion.

Right, if I were to get over a 750, why would I need to take the GMAT again?

The GMAT doesn't really have much to do with bschool past admissions.

Well, I was a bit disappointed when I got 770, because on each test I had been doing one week prior to exam date, I got scores of 780 and above (GMAT Prep and MGMAT CATs)... And I did awesome job of panicking and messing up the beginning of quant session on the test day

IMO it's insane to try to push up to 800 - 'cause nobody really needs it

There is one guy here on GMATClub, who tries to hunt down the perfect score each year; he gets 790 with perfect consistency and I wish him all the luck in his pursuit. But, he's GMAT instructor and it's kind of his job.

For the others, I believe there are more important things to do - polishing essays, for instance

Guys,

Probability to receive 800 equals to $$(1/5)^78$$, or it is 3.022*10^-55.

Not sure if OP is looking for someone who scored 800 in general or on this forum.

for the former, GMAT score is percentile, not absolute score. In order for me to have gotten my score (which is below 800), there must be somebody who scored 800.

for the latter, my friend from college got 800.

I think one reason 800ers may be rejected is the probable arrogance they may show when applying. One of my friends got a simple 700 and wrote to stanford "Waive the application fee or I won't apply". CRAZY
