Does anyone know if scoring in the mid 500's on the GMAT is something that will automatically lead to a rejection? I understand part time has an average of around 670, and it's not the only only factor in an application. I'm not in finance, and maybe that can help, but I know that is a pretty low score.

If anyone has any info on how those types of applicants fare, please me know. Thanks for any insight.

Hi Eddie, there's no way to truly know unless you are currently on the adcom at Stern, however I do not believe this to be the case. That said, I think you would have to offer some type of seriously irreplaceable diversity to Stern for them to being willing to take this kind of hit to their numbers. If you don't have that, I would retake the exam - and I would recommend you do anyways.

Might consider taking the GRE to see if that exam would yield a better result. Also, to be honest, there are no published GRE stats out there for part-timers and if they like you, and you have build a *convincing case* that you can handle the quantitative rigor of the class, it will be enough for them to not get into the program, but have them review your application in earnest. By that I mean resume/essays/letters/application responses. Those would need to be done particularly well.

Good question...i really think there’s a score that is an automatic ding especially for PTMBA. But just know applying with such a score puts you at a disadvantage and you’ll be fighting an uphill battle right from the beginning that only serious uniqueness / diversity or a tremendous profile in all of the other areas. I’d try and retake if you haven’t already exhausted your patience with the GMAT
