In the world of MBA Admissions, your numbers are not everything. Applicants do tend to focus on numbers when they submit an MBA application: Their undergraduate GPA, total GMAT/GRE score, quant and verbal scores, percentiles, etc. With limited seats in Texas MBA classes, measurable figures can be a very helpful tool when determining who best fits into our programs. But…
You are not just a simple sum of your numeric parts. The same way that you are not just left-handed or right-handed — your scores are part of you, but certainly do not define who you are.
We should say up front that putting your best numbers forward is important. That’s why getting your best test score and putting your best GPA into your application is a must. However, in our review of a typical MBA candidate, GMAT and GPA alone do not offer any consistent indication of success in the program. Even if you do have a 780 GMAT, this does not automatically indicate to us that you will make good grades, find an internship, thrive in your study groups, or find a good job after graduation. It is the combination of strong numbers, your unique story, a commitment to McCombs, and many other things that indicate how well you’ll do in the Texas MBA Program.
If you have reviewed the Texas MBA admissions process, you are familiar with the basic steps to applying. Here are some of those steps we’ve highlighted recently:
Of course, the above list does not cover everything. Every application is unique and you may have a special situation or specific questions. The Texas MBA Admissions Team is here to help!
