Hi,

I've been told to apply for an MBA at a top-tier American university, the GMAT should not be more than 2-years old. I know the GMAT result expires after 5 years.
Does anybody know a bit more about this?

thanks :)

Hi giovas9494

Can you be more specific with your interest? Are you looking to understand the process or a profile evaluation, or GMAT requirement?

Hi,

I’m talking about gmat requirements. I’m planning on applying for an mba in 3/4 yrs but would like to take the gmat now as I’m not very busy with work within the next 6/7 months and think I’ll be able to manage the time to prepare for it. However, I’ve been told be a friend that you can only apply for MBAs by presenting gmat results that are not older than 2 years from the MBA application date. What I mean is that if I’ll take the test at the end of 2018 and apply for the mba in 2021, the test might not be accepted as too old. Is this true? I’ve never heard that before, but before starting to prepare i’d like to make sure schools accept results that fall within the 5 years (gmat expiry time). Thanks

Hi giovas9494,

If the target university states that they accept GMAT scores not older than five years, then trust that they are not trying to trick you into submitting a score they won't accept. I hope this helps.

Good luck!

Hi, I get to work with 3 to 4 year old scores almost every year. A lot of people sit on a GMAT score for a year or two before starting the applications. I have worked with many applicants who had applied in the last two consecutive cycles without any success, and they came to me in the third year.

Last year, I met someone I would call LAZY- I liked that that applicant and he was great to work with, but I had never met anyone with a 4.5 year old GMAT 770. He did not do round 2 for any school as his score was valid till December last year. He had a great application year with multiple admits and decent scholarships from US Top 10, 20 Ranked schools. ( Check this https://pythagurus.in/success-stories/ )

I would not recommend anyone to sit on a score for 4.5 years. However, if you think you will have serious time constraints later, take it now.
