If you spend ten years collecting all the different rumours out there about what it takes to get into HBS, or Stanford GSB, or London Business School, you’ll end up with a million different recommendations. Of course, the actual set of key success factors for a Business School admit is much shorter. Here are 4 important points to keep in mind:
It is definitely not just based on the GMAT. The GMAT is one of many important components. The essays and the answers to some key questions play a big part in your interview call; the interview itself is a big eliminator. There are so many parts to the admit, that the GMAT is not the be all and end all; it is, however, very important.
A poor GMAT score can cause problems, but a good GMAT score does not guarantee admission. A very low GMAT score might cause a Business School to look hard at other portions of your application to gauge your Quant and Verbal skills, and you will be at a disadvantage. However, a score that is well above 710 is not an automatic admit, for the reasons listed above.
A large part of admission success is based on your overall professional profile. The holistic admissions criteria that most schools take into account make sure that your work experience and your achievements are given a very high weightage.
Even a Mark Zuckerberg would struggle to get an admit without a super impressive application; your resume, your answers, and your essays will need to be on point. This, of course, means that you will need the best Admissions Consultants in the business.
