Please, share your insights on the following question:
What is the GMAT verbal score at which you are considered "passed the GMAT requirement" by top BS (Harvard, Stanford, Wharton and so on)???

A similar question came up after the Wharton reception in Bangalore, and Mr. Caleel basically said it is preferred if you have at least a 80-80 split on the GMAT.

I don't see why H/S would have any different requirements than "anything better than 80/80"

As with almost every other application component, there is no formal cutoff for GMAT verbal score.

The only formal cutoff exists for TOEFL, if required, but even so, some people say that scoring at the minimum is not the same as having a greater score.

NO schools will tell you that they have a "requirement". You'll always hear the dreaded "holistic" approach and "everyone should apply".

But with that said, the 80/80 Q/V percentile is usually a good soft "requirement" to apply for any of the top 15-16 schools.

Man, I friggin' jacked up quant yesterday and now have a 72/99 split. Is this going to knock me back when applying to HBS, Wharton and Chicago? I do have a quant background, which will hopefully help show that I had an off day on that section. I'm going to be a wreck until this apps process if complete.

MeddlingKid,

I have the exact same dilema. Q: 72%, V 95%, with 710 93%. I have a BS and Master in Comp Science with strong Math background... Go figure... I hope the adcom will see that and think I had an off day. I am not retaking the GMAT for that...

Remember GMATs are one thing you can retake to up. I dont tell people to retake it but if you have a 75% quant it will give more pause than having a 75% verbal. There are people who get in with lower GMATs or low Quant strong Verbal...nervousgmat had a good overall score but nailed V not so hot Q but had very strong academics and she had a clean sweep this year. If you think you can nail the quant with a little more effort and maintain your verbal then I suggest you think about retaking...there is still plenty of time. Your 710 will go to 740+ which is a great score to have these days. At Kellogg's admitted student weekend they said the average GMAT of admitted students in R1 was 721. Figure it has been going up each year so think about it.

Applications dont come out for a few months. I pretty much was just starting to seriously study for the GMAT this time last year, lots of us took it in July/August. Its 250 but so is each application and this process is all about doing everything you can to maximize your chances.

Does anyone know what's considered the 80% cutoff for quant these days? I've seen 46 listed, but my official report said that that represents 79%.

Yes, I'm splitting hairs, but it would be nice not to have to worry. If only I could spare a percentage point (or 20) from verbal!

I think I could nail the Quant as I scored 48-49 on my mock exams vs 44 on the real one. I am just tired of the GMAT; it is useless. Work is super hectic and I do work 20-30 hours a week in managing a non-profit board. Basically, I made a life choice when I decided not to retake it. I prefer focusing on helping my board and working harder on my essays.
Do you know what the average GPA is? I have a 3.96 from a decent engineering school (BS) and 3.83 from an Ivy (MS). I was hoping that would help.

I also think that I am going to be a wreck at the end of this process. I was thinking that with all the extra curricular I do, great academic background and making VP at an investment bank @ 28 would help. Now I am scared of not getting into any of the schools I am applying to (R1 - H/W/Kellogg/MIT/Chicago).

Life suckssssss at times

Vlad, I think you are non-native speaker.
Schools realise that non-native speaker's verbal scores are lower than of native speakers. So they i hope will be OK with min 37-38 verbal score.
Min 80% in verbal is V37, so to receive 700 you will need at least 49 in quantative (see link to the thread of all gmat scores)
