Saw the thread earlier about SAT scores: Will putting your GMAT score on your resume help you get opportunities pre-MBA? On one hand a good score demonstrates that you’re smart, but on the other it shows that you’re MBA-bound very soon, so on the fence on whether to list it or not.

1 YOE and looking to apply to MBB or FAANG if that matters. Also, is there a cutoff score (750+ or something like that) that makes it worth listing?

likefunny

Seems like you know what you’re going to do then. I personally don’t put a lot of weight on gpa. As for the cutoff, I think 730+ is accepted by mensa

Depends on target audience; sometimes I include mine and sometime I don’t. 2YOE.

Jobs that typically recruit out of MBA. I’d look at the hiring manager and if they themselves have an MBA.

helpful

Yes it will. Do it.

Different recruiters look for different things, so hard to really know.

For what it’s worth, when I see someone with a mediocre GPA and great test scores, my immediate category is “smart, but lazy.” Not amazing, but at least as good as “maybe not that smart; maybe lazy.”
