Hi, I just wanted to know the evaluation method used by universities for evaluating more than one GMAT score. Do they consider the highest score or take an average of all the scores
Thanks

Hi,

The elite schools generally take the highest total score (e.g. Yale) or require the applicant to indicate which score to use (e.g. Duke).

Dartmouth is a little different:

"The admissions committee takes into consideration your highest test score. The Tuck application allows students to report up to two GMAT test scores. This way, if you have scored better on one test in the verbal section and better on the other in the quantitative section, we will consider your highest quantitative and highest verbal scores."

With a few exceptions, b-schools are willing to give you the benefit of the doubt. So, that usually means that they'll take your highest score. Taking it a bunch of times (say, more than three) will raise some eyebrows, though. But if you can get a good score within two or three tries, you should be fine.

I agree that a maximum of about three administrations is a good rule-of-thumb.
