Generally speaking, you want to be in the 700 range when applying to top schools, but of course, nothing is absolute in admissions. Try posting in the admissions consulting section for more specific advice: http://www.beatthegmat.com/ask-an-mba-admissions-consultant-f40.html

Hi kcs,

As David pointed out, you're asking admissions-based questions, so speaking with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile and application plans would be a good idea.

Since you're not planning to take the GMAT until NEXT August, does that mean that you plan to apply to Business School next Fall (Round 1 for most Schools)? If that's your plan, then you might consider studying for the GMAT (and taking the Test) earlier than August, 2017. GMAT scores are valid for 5 years, so you could study now (when you won't have to focus on your applications) and 'lock in' a strong GMAT score that you can use later on.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
