What is a good GMAT score for Mccombs MSBA?

Short Answer – The average GMAT score at Texas McCombs is 719. If you score above 719, you have a fair shot and you will receive an encouraging response to your profile evaluation from the admission committee. 

Long Answer – There is no such thing as a safe score, higher is always better. In our years of consulting experience, we have seen our clients with 640 getting selected into top schools like MIT SLOAN and on the other hand, someone with a 770 getting rejected too. A good benchmark that we advise all our clients to beat is the average GMAT score of the last entering class as mentioned in the Class profile published every year. Scoring above the average gets you a fair shot; 

“The higher your score, the better is it for your interview or admission chance.” 

If you plan to apply with a score below the average, then you are starting a fight with one hand tied behind your back or, say, starting a few yards behind your competitors. You can catch up in other application sections by writing outstanding essays or performing well in an interview later. But it is always nice to start ahead of the competitor. A higher GMAT score helps one gain a competitive advantage.

“What if you are from the over-represented Indian or Asian Pool?”

The over-represented candidate pool of Indian or Chinese applicants usually goes through a rigorous preparation process for GMAT, with a lot of Indian applicants scoring quite high. Hence, the overall competition and the Average score for this diaspora go up by a few notches. That is why we recommend candidates within the most over-represented profiles shoot at least 20 points higher than the school’s class profile average.
