Original Post

Many schools do not require you to send your official score reports of the GMAT during the application process. You are only required to send the official score reports (that is, get the testing agency to send official score reports on behalf of you) if you are admitted. Official reports are required only as part of the post-admission verification process. So, you plan ahead and send score during GMAT to schools which require official score for application processing.

I have updated the list from the linked post. Will keep updating the list. Please let me know if anybody finds any discrepancy.

Disclaimer: The requirement of official score may change without any notice, so you must check from the school about the latest status.


Schools with official score requirement(prior application deadline)
SchoolOfficial GMAT/GRE with Application(yes/no) Requirment of Official GMAT/GRE Link
TuckNoThis step is required only for admitted students, who have 30 days from the date of enrollment to submit their official score reports.Link
RossNoIf accepted, official reports will be required.Link
HarvardProbabily No(not very clear from the information given)When submitting your application, you may report the unofficial GMAT or GRE score given on the day of the test, or your official score if you have received it. Every applicant must request that Pearson (for the GMAT) or ETS (for the GRE) send an official score report directly to HBS.Link
DardenNoIf offered admission, you will need to send official documents.Link
JohnsonNoAll applicants must provide GMAT or GRE scores, and upload an official score report within your application. You may submit an unofficial score report for review, however, before matriculating at Johnson we must have an official score report.Link
StanfordNot clear from the language• If you do not take the test prior to submission, your application will be reviewed without your scores. Scores received after the deadline will not be reviewed.
• Self-report your scores on the application form. These are the scores we will consider in our initial evaluation of your application. If you do not have your official scores, list the unofficial scores.
WhartonNoYou may self-report your GMAT score; if admitted, you will need to submit an official GMAT score report to our office before you can matriculate.Link
MIT SloanYesWe require that the official GMAT/GRE test scores are sent to us by the application deadline. We understand that sometimes it takes 1-2 weeks for the test centers to release the scores. Therefore, it is acceptable if we receive the scores shortly after the application deadline.Link
ColumbiaNo• All applicants must submit a self-reported GMAT or GRE score. Your scores must be valid when you submit your application.
• If admitted, you must submit an official GMAT or GRE score.
BoothNoOfficial scores will only be requested if and when you are offered admission.Link
KelloggYesYou must report your scores by the application deadline.Link
Yale SOMCouldn’t findLink
NYU SternYesWhile an official test score is required for a final decision, the Admissions Committee can begin the review of your application with an unofficial test score.Link
FuquaNoSelf-reported scores are accepted with the application, and official score reports sent directly from the testing agency will be required after admission and before the program begins.Link
UCLA AndersonNoOfficial scores are required for admission but not for applying.Link
McCombsYesYou must self-report your test scores in your application as well as have official score reports sent directly to UT Austin by the testing agency. GMAT and GRE test scores expire five years after the test date. The date that your official scores are sent to UT Austin by the testing agency should be no later than the application round deadline, as it can take up to 3-4 weeks for scores to be processed. After application submission, you will be able to monitor the status of your test scores.Link
Kenan-FlaglerNoApplicants should self-report test scores on their application. Official scores are not required until after admission to the full- time MBA program.Link
USC MArshallNoYou must either upload your score report into the application or provide the intended future test date in the appropriate field in the application. Failure to do this may result in a deny decision. Submitting Official Test Scores (required for all enrolling students)Link
