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 post. It is difficult for us to advise on retaking the GMAT with limited information on your background and profile. Can you give detail on your background (academics, work experience, extracurricular, etc)? We are happy to discuss your HBS profile in a private call. If interested, please fill this form to coordinate a free consultation.

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!

Hi AccountsPlay174,

Thank you for sharing the details. From what you've described, you seem to have a strong profile, both academically and professionally. If you choose to retake the GMAT, I would focus on increasing your quant score particularly. Also, if you allow me, I would love to read your application to HBS and provide feedback during a scheduled call. If interested, please email your material to susan.berishaj@siaadmissions.com.

Good luck!
