Top 20 MBA Programs Open to Low-ish GMAT [#permalink]

Hello GMAT Club Members,

What are some top business schools that are most accepting of a sub-par GMAT? I recently scored a 710 on the exam - I know this isn't a terrible score but given the current "GMAT arms race" among the top Business schools I'm looking to choose my target schools wisely. Moreover, the GMAT is probably the worst part of my application - I'll spare all of the details but think 3.6 GPA, top 25 School, CPA, global firm, ECs with leadership positions, etc. I'm a white male for what it's worth.

I heard Fuqua, Tuck, and Darden are schools who tend to evaluate their candidates more holistically while Columbia, Wharton, and Kellogg have more of a "750 GMAT or bust" mentality. I've been feeling a bit worried/discouraged about my GMAT score as it appears to carry a disproportionate amount of weight in the application process these days, and I'm looking to choose my schools wisely to have the highest chances of success. Anyone else have similar experiences/get accepted to a T20 school with a similar gmat score? Thanks for the help!

If you think you can do better, consider retaking the test, but 710 is a solid score! We had many candidates admitted to top MBA programs with lower scores, as you can see here: https://aringo.com/aringo-top-mba-gmat-results/
