Confused: Sending GMAT scores

by maus » Thu Nov 17, 2011 4:17 pm
Hi All,

I took the GMAT several times and sent my scores to different schools each time. So, my question is...if i sent my scores to school xyz the first time i took it and that particular score was not my highest, do i need to re-send my score report again?

Thanks,
maus

Yes!
GMAT sends past scores only: specifically ALL scores from the past 5 years.

It does not resend scores just because you retook the test. If you retook and have a better score, you have to send again.
Vineesh,
Just telling you what I know and think. I am not the expert. :)

Vineeshp,

For clarity sakes, that means if i sent school123 my test score when i took my highest scoring test, i don't have to send it to them again?

Thanks :)

Hi Maus
You would need to report all the test scores to the schools. So yes please do send them the scores that came from your second attempt :)

Really? I asked mba.com and they told me the schools see ALL scores from the past 5 years, meaning they can access scores subsequent to those you sent them after your first attempt (I assume they basically have access to your file). Is this not correct?
