Sort of a silly question here...but how many interviews would one reasonable expect to receive after applying to lets say 5-6 schools? Obviously, I know it depends on various factors but I am curious as to what others have experienced.

You should check our analysis of acceptance rates at top business schools. It won't tell you exactly how many schools will invite you for the interview but rather probability of getting invite from top 10/20 schools based on your GMAT score. e.g. If you have applied to any of M7 schools and say your GMAT score is 750 then you have 34% chance of getting invited at that school. If you have applied to other elite programs (excluding M7) then your chance increases to 39%.

FYI.. this analysis is based on our user data, which is self reported, so it's advised to use findings of the analysis with discretion.

Hey tistheMBAseason ,

There is no definite answer for this question.

I have seen people getting zero invites out of 10 schools they applied to and others getting 10 invites out of 10 schools they applied to.

Since I have provided you the extremes, it could be anything.

Only thing that matters is the individual profile. :-D

Good Luck!

This depends on the schools you apply to... and how competitive you are given their average student. If you want to see better odds, and possibly more money to go with your offer- check out this article written by my colleague Harold: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... r-roi-mba/

Hello @istheMBAseason :)

This is indeed a very subjective question. There is no correct answer and a lot will depend on the schools you have applied to, and the application you have put before the Ad Com. Hence, if your GMAT score is around the average score reported by the school in question and your career goals are an ideal fit for your profile, as well the school (that the essays should be well-written goes without saying :)), you should definitely have some invites in hand.

All the best! We do hope you hear from all the schools you have written to :) :)

There really is no answer to this question as stated above. One thing I will add is that if you're trying to gauge your odds at a given school your odds will be much better if you are at a minimum within the 80% range on GMAT/GPA and if you are at the avg scores for both then your odds for an interview should theoretically increase including a reasonable quality in your application

Depends on:
1. the competitiveness of the program where you have applied. Are you within range of their class statistics, or even better, a little above? (that would surely help)
2. the quality of your application
