Judging by the profiles, I'm assuming applicants with high GMAT scores are receiving early interview calls, makes sense!

I received an early invite with a 680. I am not sure how GMAT plays a roll in the invites.

I would like to add location as a possible explanation. When you schedule for an interview, there is a list of different locations where you can meet the school representative for your interview. Since your profile says you are from Pakistan, there is a possibility they just might have nobody yet from your area to meet you. That's one thing to consider.

Guys, did your status changed in the application.
I am still waiting. MY Status is still submitted

Application:
Application for Admission

Application for Admission was submitted on 1/4/2012

Don't sweat it since it's really really early in the process. I'm a bit surprised that the schools would just send invites that quickly. I'm just waiting til mid February to panic and it's not uncommon for the adcom to interview guys through the week of decision day, fwiw.

i don't think so... i have a 640 (not exactly high) and i received an invite (round 2) two weeks ago. i don't think there's any rhyme or reason to who gets an invite when...

Hello guys,

Any word of advice or tips for an international R3 applicant?
Due to an extenuating circumstance, I couldn't complete and submit my application in R2. Given the fact that my GMAT score is too low, my chances in R3 don't look so good, right?

Appreciated. Thanks!

If you feel like you have a very strong profile, you can of course apply to R3, but it isn't ideal of course.

If I were you though, I would retake the GMAT and apply in R1 next year

Thanks. I concur, but unfortunately I can't wait till the next admission cycle. It's now or never, because I am part of a government scholarship.

My GMAT is obviously way lower than Gtown's average, so I am relying on my high GPA (double major) and hopefully the quality of the other application pieces.

Frankly, I am hoping that because middle easterners are under-represented at top schools, especially saudis, addcoms might be willing to consider my other intangibles(turning a blind eye to the GMAT score). Is it wishful thinking!?

Thanks again!

Not necessarily. There aren't many middle easterners, so hopefully the other intangible factors and your GPA will even out your app.

The Georgetown Business School building is named after former Lebanese PM Rafik Hariri, fwiw. Obviously he isn't Saudi, but there aren't many schools named after middle easterners at American universities, and probably not at a Catholic university like Georgetown.

Good luck with the application!

Thank you! I hope so.
Actually Rafik Hariri has a dual citizenship, Lebanese and Saudi (I am originally Lebanese).

Best of luck buddy.

Officially declined my offer (R1) today - a bit sad to miss out on a great experience at Georgetown, but I hope this opens up a seat for WLs or R2/3 applicants!

I'm happy to help if anyone still in the process has any questions. I'm a local in DC too and often hang out at the Rafik building to work/study. It's a beautiful facility with free wifi

Best of luck to all of you interviewing! Make sure to emphasize how you've GIVEN BACK to the community since service is a big part of their culture and identity!

Had my interview last weekend...went pretty well. I'm already pretty familiar with DC/Georgetown, so that helped tremendously. Now I just wait...
