This year, all Consortium member schools accept the GMAT and the GRE. As the application season is quickly approaching, now is a great time to plan and take your test. The Consortium’s round 1 deadline is October 15, 2013 and round 2 is January 5, 2014.
When you apply, you want to make sure you have a score that makes you feel comfortable. Below are some pointers:
Research Your Schools
Make sure you know what a competitive score is at the school to which you are applying. Although you are applying through the Consortium, remember that you are being reviewed by the admissions team at the schools to which you applied
Plan to take your exam well before the application deadline. There are many reasons to do this but a major one is that you do not want to feel rushed. Also, if you want to retake the exam for a better score, you can if you plan early enough.
Send Your Scores
Remember to send your scores to The Consortium. We will send them to your schools. With both test, it can take between 15-20 days for scores to be processed and for The Consortium to receive your reports. Make sure you keep track of all deadlines. Even if you are approaching the application deadline and plan to retake the exam, send what you have. Once you have new scores, we will forward those along to your school as well.
Good luck with your application!
