Executive MBA

How important is a 700+ score on GMAT for M7 schools? With 11 years of solid consulting experience, currently SM, but abysmal GPA (~2.5)

What school are you considering?

Yeah, but they recommend taking a GMAT or a Quant course if your undergraduate performance is not a good indicator.

Current at wharton mba for exec. Can confirm more than 50% students had 700 on gmat in my cohort. You can get away with no GMAT only if you have certain years of experience (15 years I think?) with executive assessment. Wharton Admissions team will be very open with your chance and actually encourage / discourage you to apply - this is why you also see higher acceptance rate because admissions will stop people from applying if they really have no shot (unlike full time).

I imagine you will be fine. Just make sure to have 15min chat with admissions office - they will be very up front about it. If they think your gpa is too low, they will suggest you to retake gmat to get it up higher. For example, I had 3.5 gpa and based on that + work experience they gave me a target gmat I should aim for (this was before me taking GMAT). Hope this helps! Feel free to dm me

What would happen if someone was interviewing for a role and accidentally passed gas, but otherwise crushed the interview? Has anyone experienced this before? No clue what I’d do as the interviewer
