Hi all!

Does anyone have any insight as to whether it is a good idea to include all 3 pages of the GMAT report (revealing the other schools you sent the report to) on the MBA application. I scored 10-20 pts below average of the school I am currently applying to. This school is on the lower end of prestige of the schools listed on the report and may be my best chance of acceptance due to an average GMAT performance. In one sense I don't want the school to think that I am applying as a backup, and on another I don't want to give the impression that my PDF that only shows page 1 of 3 is an indication that I am hiding something.

One final question. What is the best answer to the question about whether your undergrad GPA is reflective of your true ability. My GPA was 3.4 which is the average GPA for accepted students in the program. I obviously KNOW that I could have done better if not for a 1000 factors that include video games and booze :!: . As of know I answered no, and touched BRIEFLY on how I worked part time, participated in extra curriculars, and how it did prevent me getting great GPA but also was invaluable in terms of managing a balanced and full schedule.

Thank you all in advance!

This is a pretty interesting question. For one, I never heard schools asking to upload Score Report PDF's. I wonder if that is a non-standard policy or if the schools are trying to figure out how many attempts you had at GMAT now that GMAC does not report that information?

You can absolutely black out/edit out the other schools. I don't think that would be a negative - you can always say - this is a special school for me and the place I want to be but since I get 5 slots, I have chosen to send to others. No reason for us to dwell on that.

As to the GPA, 3.4 is decent. Below 3 is considered very low. sub 3.2 is considered low, so you can definitely help your case by how you answered the question. I bet everyone answers it the same way though, so think of a way to differentiate yourself.
