Hi everyone,

I know they say the average GMAT score for top schools is in the low 700's, but if you don't have the best undergrad or work experience, what scores do you need to go to a top 10 school? 750? 760?

Thank you.

GMAT Scores for top 10 schools do not matter really, though they are around 700. the-pants-pooping-applicant-thread-for-78477.html?view-post=617871#p617871

If you have a weak work and leadership experience, HBS and Wharton do not care if you can spend a few months and get your GMAT to the limit.

I agree with bb..

I have seen people near me who have scored 710 or 730 and did'nt get admits as they had a below average academic record or work experience that depicted no growth in their profile.

In this case one might not be able to get admits in top 10 schools but other are surely open..
