Jon’s Answer

Hi Ena, it's important to think about why MBA programs want to know your GPA and/or your GMAT score. They are using those two as metrics to gauge whether you are likely to succeed academically in their program. When they take you on, they are choosing to take you on over other candidates in a limited capacity, and they want some assurance that you are likely to succeed in coursework and add to their metrics of success (e.g. over 90% find a job within 6 months of graduating, etc.). While having a strong GPA is good, schools vary in terms of rigor of their coursework. Additionally, MBA applicants vary in age and some may have graduated more recently while others may have graduated a while ago. Therefore, the schools also like to see your GMAT score as they consider it to be a fair way to compare the academic readiness of MBA applicants. The final answer that I can give you is that your MBA application is reviewed holistically, meaning not one factor is considered in isolation to others. It's important to present yourself as a well-rounded individual through your essays, resume, as well as your standardized test scores and GPA.

Hi Ena,

All schools and programs are different. In my case, the higher your GPA, the lower the GMAT threshold and vice versa. Many schools or academic departments review your application as a whole and complete a wholesome review of your GPA, GMAT scores, extra-curricular activities, professor recommendations, references, essay etc.

Even if you have a outstanding GPA, I would still strive to do your best on the GMAT.

Best,
Elizabeth

Hello Ena,


It's hard to speak for all schools but both are important. You can buy study guides to prepare for the GMAT's.


Good Luck!
