Rankings are more confusing than ever

Post Mon Nov 19, 2007 3:29 am
i looked at business week rankings and applied for scores!! Rolling Eyes
based on the below link
http://www.businessweek.com/bschools/rankings/

and there are lots and lots of discrepancies man!

However, what are the so called non-ivy league decent schools to apply to with a score of 670( and work ex of 3.5+ years? 2.5+in Technology and close to 1 in business(ya no post or not paid like a manager tho-which is why more the MBA)

yep i screwed up my gmat and finished the exam half hour early!!!!)
Shocked Shud i retake the test?? any thoughts?

P.S.S..SSSSSSSSS.........

Business week gives these cut-off range of GMAT scores kind of a thing for every school in the ranked list.Are these to be followed while applying??
i mean shud one look at median scores or range in combination with mean experience or what kind of a thing?

Any thots .suggestions??

A 670 is still a great score! Unless you are confident that you could improve by 50+ points in a re-take, I wouldn't bother.

Just to be clear, most schools do not have any official cutoff scores for the GMAT. Schools cite these GMAT statistics to just demonstrate a typical range.

When considering your candidacy, think of the entire package: GMAT, work experience, undergraduate GPA, references, essays--they are all important considerations.

Don't pay too much attention to business school rankings--they are useful as high-level guidelines but are all inherently flawed in some way.
