Depends a lot on how much work experience you have. I got into 3 M7s with relatively low GMATs (sub-700) because I was 8 years out and had a good story. The longer you’re out, the less weight the GMATs have versus work experience. If you’re out a short amount of time, UG grades are critical and might offset GMAT softness, though that softness will be harder to explain. How long have you been out?

64% don’t go to M7. Ask yourself how to make it to the top 10%, not stay out the bottom 60.

2 years ago. My essays / work experience was strong and prob played a role too FYI.

710, which was still lower than my M7 school's average for my year 😩

700 but back then at least I was thinking the percentile matters more than the score. If you want the mba, go all in on the gmat and let the process play out. I’m not even sure when some are bringing the gmat back. I know Kellogg waived it because of covid.

My request to all guys is please have some self respect because this desperation won't lead you anywhere
