How important is GMAT in B school admission?

Modified on Thu, 17 Aug 2023 at 05:30 PM

GMAT® is a PART of your B-school application, not the B-school application itself. Most B-school admission committees look at a profile from multiple aspects.

This also explains the wide range of GMAT® scores of admitted candidates in top B-schools. One of the best knows B-schools – University of Chicago: Booth has a score range of 570 – 780 for the admitted class of 2017.

B-schools look at your career goals, work experience, the diversity that your profile brings in, recommendations, internships, undergrad performance, achievements, extra-curricular activities, etcetera. All these and your GMAT® and English language test scores must add up to communicate a single, consistent storyline about you.
