Hello!

i am planning on retaking my GMAT exam in the near future. But while i prepare for the exam, i am planning on applying to certain schools. If i apply to these schools and then retake the exam and accept the new score, will my application to the schools with the old score become invalid? Would i have to reapply to the schools considering i have a different GMAT score now?

thanks in advance!

Hi kritica,

In general, Business Schools tend to accept noteworthy, 'updated' application information after an application has been submitted (such as a new/higher GMAT Score, a promotion at your work, a major award, etc.). That having been said, you have to remember that you get just one chance at a 'first impression', so you do not want to 'rush in' an application if it's likely to get 'wait-listed.' If your application is not 'fantastic' in some way, then you should not submit it - you would be better off continuing to study and working to improve your GMAT Score (and improving any other areas of the application that you can - such as your Essays) so that you can apply with a much stronger application during a later Round.

If you know which Schools you plan to apply to, I suggest that you contact each of them and ask your specific questions. I'm sure that someone in the Admissions Office will be glad to answer any questions that you might have.

kritica i have done this before. If you have old score you can apply on this score. While submitting your application, schools asked you about your gmat score. so you can use that option and give them the date when you are planning for reattempt. Also you can email to admission director directly telling him/her that you have applied at your old score. But one problem you will face is that if your old gmat score is below the school average score you wont get interview call until n unless you are not giving them new improved score. Hope this helps
