While these are not directly related to the GMAT, these are some acronyms that I have seen on here before. So, if I may, I would like to add a few:

  • HSW - Harvard/Stanford/Wharton
  • MBB - McKinsey, BCG, Bain
  • MC - Management Consulting
  • PE - Private Equity

A few more that are probably worth adding:

IB - Investment Banking

M7 - Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, Booth, Kellogg, Sloan, Columbia

HSW - Harvard, Stanford, Wharton

$$$ - Full waiver (funding), $$ - Half or decent fee waiver, $ - Small scholarship (Not sure but this is how I interpret)

EC - Extra Curricular

I can't think of anything else at this time.

In the profile of most members, there's a school list with W, D, M, I, II etc. I know a few (Waitlisted, Matriculating for e.g.) but what do the others mean?
