I've still never been able to find evidence of that. I think it's an interweb [strike]myth[/strike] parable.


It's a myth only if people are saying that Stanford disfavors candidates with high scores.

The people who are spreading the myth that Stanford rejects applicants with perfect 800 GMAT scores are exactly those with problems with Critical Reasoning skills.

Stanford happens to have rejected many candidates with an 800, but that's just statistics combined with their policy of not making the GMAT an overriding factor in acceptance. It doesn't mean that they don't like candidates with an 800. Even my brother who's at Stanford right now made that same logical mistake (but that's why he got a 750 and I got a 780 :wink:).

Here's the quote from a speech welcoming the MBA class of 2005:
Quote:
"With 14 applicants for every space in the class, we had to make some difficult decisions," said Bolton. He continued, "we turned down every applicant with an 800 GMAT score this year. We also turned down Olympic medalists, entrepreneurs, managers of thriving businesses, Rhodes Scholars — incredible people who, like you, have achieved amazing success in life and who have compelling prospects for the future.

Surely, you don't think Stanford rejects entrepreneurs because they are entrepreneurs.

Hard Work Beats Talent When Talent Fails To Work Hard. Guess that's not so true in this case =/

Yikes, I guess I shouldn't be going for an 800?

That's the only official person on GMAT Club.

P.S. Supposedly up to 50 people per year get the perfect score but only one legit on GMAT Club.
