Have a question. On reading some other posts, it seems scholarship awards attach high weightage to GMAT scores. Is it true? In that sense, is the score low for a scholarship?

Is my verbal score low?

I took my GMAT today, and unofficial scores say - V 38 (83 percentile), QA 51 (99 %ile), 740 overall (97 %ile). Is my verbal score too low for a top 10 school? I just want to make sure that a top 10 school does not dump me saying my verbal score is low.

thanks stacey. but the problem with tracking anything on the internet is that it is really really hard to prove anything. it may finally boil down to several lawsuits between candidates and GMAC - in an year in which you are applying to B-schools, you really do not want to bother about anything.
