Thank you so much for sharing! This is awesome! I think many users on GMAT Club are definitely overly focused on the score. I can’t really blame them since the number of them come from very competitive demographics that requires a very high score to stand out. I think there are several ways to actually stand out and if you look at the range of scores at the top 20 business schools, there are some low 600’s scores in the top 10.

Definitely a workable score!!!
Are you applying in round one?

What did you use to prep? I think there’s something to be said about putting an honest effort and knowing that you did your best and you have no regrets, whatever the score you got. Even if it’s a 500, if you put in on the Stafford and you’ve done everything takes, you can be proud and stand tall 👍

I really liked your philosophy regarding GMAT score. Many of us forgets that GMAT is a fraction of one's application package. Congrats for achieving a solid score on the GMAT!

Awesome job! Finally a post that people like myself can relate to. I think many people turn this forum into a 700 club, and I don't think that was intended purpose. At one time I even stop requesting it because I just couldn't relate. Don't get me wrong, I am super happy for everyone's accomplishments, but the struggle is real and everyone situation is different. But thanks again for your post.

This should be the attitude of every GMAT Test Taker. Not be overly attached to the Score. Work hard and get the best possible score and move on. GMAT is only one component of your B-School application and certainly, GMAT score alone cannot determine your complete potential to succeed in B-School.

I have known so many with High GMAT scores who got rejected from Top B-Schools. On the other hand applicants with relatively lower GMAT scores got into some of the IVY Leagues.

Unfortunately, many B-School applicants from India may not have too many differentiating factors either in terms of the job profiles or outside professional activities and hence GMAT score tends to become a major differentiating factor. I hope this changes soon.

All the Best for your B-School Applications.

Stay Blessed! Stay Happy.

Congrats! I think when you visit GMAT forums people are so focused on getting the highest score possible that it distorts our image of what a good score actually is. Also, most people on these forums seem so focused on attending Ivy league schools. I got a 620 and with my background and target schools that should be good enough. I do plan to retest because a higher score will help with scholarships, but I'm just aiming for 650.
