My partner unfortunately scored 108. I don't know why but he did. He studied in the states for high school and worked in Canada and New York totally for 4 years. The thing is he didn't have time to practice. He went straight to the test center.

Long in short, his score is now lower, even though very close to the minimum HBS demands. So he should retake and apply next year? Or give it shot?

His GMAT is good: 790, 51,47, 5.5, 8

I know of a friend who applied with a 107 and got an acceptance offer a week ago if that helps

I don't see this being a big factor. Just add in a note into the "other things" essay section and say that a retake is planned.

He should definitely still apply. I have worked with applicants with worse stats who got in (although I don't know about his specific job experience of course)

Good luck and reach out if you/he wants help putting together applications. scott@personalmbacoach.com

Best,
Scott
