Impact of having a poor IR score on GMAT? [#permalink]

I'm only applying to Harvard, Stanford, and Wharton, so interested in how the admissions committees might view this.

I have a 740, 97th percentile V and 80th percentile Q.

I got a 6 on IR though, which is 67th percentile. How much does IR matter? Will this impact my app negatively? Keep in mind this is only for H/S/W.

Would also appreciate any feedback on Q/V split and overall score.

Hey there,

Nice GMAT score

Honestly, at this stage don't worry too much about it. Most schools won't be using it this cycle (and probably most won't look too much at it next year either). It's a new section and needs to be vetted a few years in a row before schools can really assess what percentiles really mean. You can't say you're, for example, the 67th percentile when only one year's worth of data is available. After a few years, that could bump up to 83. Schools know this and give new components time.

However, verbal clearly carried you and an 80th percentile in quant coupled with a low-ish IR score will definitely raise some eyebrows. You haven't shared much else about your profile so I'll say this - make sure the rest of your application clearly demonstrates your ability to handle rigorous analytics and academics.

I hope this helps and good job again!

How about an 8? Think that will carry any weight this app cycle?

That ain't too shabby! Yes, it'll be a nice datapoint and adcoms will definitely take note!
