Hey guys,

So yesterday i've finally passed gmat and got to 52% and my school requires at least 50%, but the real problem is that i got 0% on integrated reasoning section. I totally failed it, my brain totally froze on that section. So i don't know whether i should submit my score or cancel it and preapre for another month. The thing is that it was my third gmat already and it makes me totally sick. So i would like to know whether schools look at integrated reasoning, or they don't pay even a single attention to it. This 0% is a real sore in the eye though.

Thanks

Hi,
Since the IR section is relatively new, admissions still haven't asked for a minimum IR score. They still look at the combined Quant/Verbal score. If you are not convinced yet, I suggest you send them an email asking if they consider IR scores. The problem in your case is that they might think that you deliberately skipped through the IR. By doing this they would think that your score is 'inflated'.

You could also retake and try to score better than 0 in the IR and past the 50% percentile. Do this only if you have time and after you sent an email.

Yup, called the school and they told me that they require at least 50% in all sections and not only a total score. So it's not just 0% in IR for me, but 33% in quant too. So i guess one more attempt for me

Hi stan3544,

A score 'requirement' that includes hitting the 50th percentile in each of the 4 individual sections of the GMAT (and in the Overall Score) is an odd request. While it's certainly possible that the specific School that you're interested in might require that applicants achieve those results, it's also possible that you've received incorrect information (or misinterpreted the information that you were given). Does the School provide this information 'in writing' (perhaps on its website?)?

Ok, now i am starting to doubt what i really heard over the phone. The thing is that when my application was denied i received a letter stating that: "...... The admissions committee is looking for students to bring with them a solid undergraduate background, along with GMAT scores near the 50th percentile". So at first i didn't pay attention to the word "scores", thought it was a total score, but i asked them specifically what do they mean by "scores". So yes, they told me i should strive to get this kind of balance in all the sections. I was really surprised myself. I guess i'll have to clarify it one more time, via e-mail this time, probably will look like an oaf, but no big deal
