How many of the candidates that fall into the pool of 750-800 GMAT are lopsided? As in, what % of these candidates have a GPA that falls between 2.5-3.3?


ME, ME, ME! Though I think 3.3 still falls within 1 std deviation for most schools.

Is it better to have a 710 and a 3.5 GPA (right at the median), or is it better to have a 770 GMAT and a 3.25 GPA? Are both of these applicants somewhat equal (looking at stats only of course). Of course, GPA is an indicator far in the past and measured over an extended period of time, whereas GMAT is a figure that is very recent but measured over a short period of time.



I think the latter is better, since US News seems to weigh GMAT more than GPA and US News rankings seems to be pretty damn important to schools these days.

Kellogg didn't publish average GPA this year. I wonder if it was embarassingly high?


Did they do so last year? I don't recall it being on the class profile. US News always gets that info somehow, though.


Actually good point - you're probably right.

Hahahahahah.. woah! I sure did.

I probably read that 3 times to make sure I wasn't missing something, and I still missed it. Apologizes to all, hope you had a good laugh at my mistake! :wink:

We did Sam! We've all been there and have done what you did. Some of us just got lucky enough to make the same mistake in a far less public way :-D
