Hello folks,

Hope you are in the best of health...

Currently on account of the COVID situation certain B- schools have waived the requirement of a GMAT.

Is there a master thread containing the list of such schools?

Hello bschoolhunter ..
I started the thread but did not update further because most of the B-schools are offering applications without GMAT. You can see the earlier post HERE. You can also check on respective schools' websites.

Posting my email exchange with Brandon Kirby, head of MBA Admissions at RSM:

Hi Brandon, I think its great that RSM has offered proxies for GMAT/GRE, however now that GRE is offering a remote option, and GMAT plans to do the same mid-April, I am wondering if/how that will change? I realize this is all unknown territory but it would be helpful to know.
Many thanks,
Farrell

Farrell,

Thanks for reaching out. At the moment, we are still in a wait and see situation. These measures will be in place until at least our next round, which is in early April - so probably before the tests are ready or many people are able to take it.

I think it’s great that both tests are adapting, but I also wonder how mentally willing and able people are to sit for the tests. Time will tell I guess.

Historically, the GRE represented a smaller portion of tests received vs GMAT for us. Once GMAC updates their approach we’ll see how it goes.

The important thing for people to realize is that we are still being just as selective with the measures, so we are not just opening up the door for all.

Hope this helps and happy to answer any other questions you might have. I’ll be curious to see the landscape in a few months...

Best,
Brandon

Thanks Leadership and MBAPrepCoach for the details.

While I undertaken that these are new circumstances, I see that most schools offering the waiver are having Jan 21 intake.

For fall 20 intake since most schools are into R3 would you recommend applying in case there is a waiver? Also any fall schools offering this waiver?

On the intake for Jan 21 would you recommend having a GMAT score and then applying or is it advisable to utilise the waiver?

Much appreciate your inputs

Hi,
I am not an expert in US Schools but can help a bit if you can share the list of your targeted schools? We can ask other users and experts. Generally, people do not prefer in R3 as the chances of International applicant are low. However, there is no harm in applying. :)

Thanks Leadership for the revert.

I am looking at the top-EU schools (LBS, INSTEAD) fyi, I applied to HEC & got dinged :-(

Apart from that I am also thinking of Duke, Tuck in USA.

Hi
LBS and INSEAD are the top European schools. Can you also share your profile and background?
