“Should I request a GMAT waiver?”
A common question in today’s MBA Admissions environment along with “Can I get admitted if I request a test waiver?” and “Can I still get a job if I have an MBA without GMAT?”
Clear Admit partnered with Carnegie Mellon Tepper to discuss these topics and more in an open conversation about the role of test waivers in MBA Admissions. J.R. McGrath, the Executive Director of Masters Admissions at Carnegie Mellon’s Tepper School of Business and Mike Tarantino from the Clear Admit team led the conversation and took plenty of questions from the audience along the way.
We covered the following topics and more:
1. What role does the GMAT/GRE play in MBA Admissions?
2. What happens if an applicant applies without a test score?
3. Which applicants should and should not request a GMAT waiver?
4. How does attending an MBA without GMAT affect your post-MBA outlook?
5. Questions submitted from the audience
