Hi,

I posted this in the GMAT general discussion forum and was pointed to post this here as well in order to get some thoughts from an admissions expert:

I applied R2 to HBS and was rejected with no interview. I am going to reapply R1 next year, but I was wondering if anyone thinks it is necessary to retake the GMAT. I will be working over the summer, but I do not mind carving out some study time to boost my score if it is necessary. I am currently a 1L at HLS, so I'm really only willing to apply to the JD/MBA at Harvard for this reason. My GMAT score is a 720 *41V/47Q; 8IR, 5AW). Any advice would be appreciated!


Thanks

Hi AccountsPlay174,

Thank you for your note, and sorry to hear about the ding.

Would you be able to share more about your background (professional and otherwise)? It's fairly difficult to interpret the GMAT score and provide a recommendation in a vacuum (i.e., if you are from an overrepresented group and don't have much in the way of compelling work or leadership experience, then it probably makes sense to try to boost a 720 because you are below the median in Q, V, and overall).

But there's way more to the whole thing than the GMAT, of course. I'd be happy to share my more comprehensive / nuanced thoughts if you would like to sign up for a Free Consultation. Please feel free to do so via the link below!

Best Regards,
Greg

Certainly! I am currently a 1L at HLS, and I will be working at a law firm this summer. Prior to law school, I was a CPA at a Fortune 500 company doing corporate forecasting and cost analysis (about two years). I graduated from undergrad with a 3.9 in accounting, finance, and economics. I have a master in accounting (with a focus on tax) with a 4.0. I also am involved with quite a few organizations at HLS and work in the Econ department as a teaching fellow. I've owned a small tutoring business since 2016 (so 3 years total), and I still manage the company while in school. While working before law school, I was pretty active in the community by teaching at a community college and was on the board of a 501(c)(3). I hope this helps!
