How much does MBB actually care about your SAT/ACT score?

I think it is insane that companies care about the score of a test you took when you were 17. I understand GMAT.... but when I was 17 I didn’t study for the SAT a single second, got a pretty good but not great score and then went about my day because I didn’t know some company was going to ask about it 4 years later. Was more concerned about hitting on Christine in Physics class

That’s insane to me, I will not be retaking the SATs ever again in my life

As a screener

They do same with gmat for MBAs

Exactly how I feel...

Are you able to retake SATs after you start school? I know people who retook the gmat after our first year of b school to get a 740+ just for MBB. I went to a non-target school though. I’m not suggesting it, just curious and too lazy to google

No one asked
