From what I've read, it seems I can register for the GMAT any day I want. Is this true?

If so, how long after I take the test can I use the score in my applications to schools? I've also read that you know your score immediately after you complete the test. Is this knowledge (or whatever unofficial score report they might give me, if any) enough to submit my application, or do I have to wait the 20 days for an official report from GMAC or for GMAC to send my score to the school?

I'm worried that if I take the GMAT too late, I may miss deadlines because my score is not available yet.

Thoughts?

1. Yes (subject to availability of slots), and some centers are open on the weekend as well. Just check mba.com.

2. GMAT scores are valid for 5 years. Most schools will not have a problem with even 5 year old scores. Check with your target schools if you want to be absolutely sure (some schools want a GMAT score from the last 3 years).

3. You don't have to wait 20 days. Just take the GMAT before the deadline. Again, check with your target schools if you have any reason to believe that they might take a different position on this.
