Clearly, >700 is where one would like to be. I know people have gotten in with less. Yes, I have read the other posts. My questions are:
1) Did you or someone you know get an offer with a sub-700 GMAT?
2) How much can my first semester GPA help hedge my chances? (I have a 650 and heading to Fuqua - there will be no retake).
3) Is the unofficial GMAT cutoff only for getting the interview? I.e. do they ignore the score once you get to the interview or is it still part of the decision?
