I'm currently a university senior, returning full time to the EB I interned with this past summer. While I am excited for that opportunity, I do plan to recruit for PE during the next cycle (late 2019 kickoff). That said, I wanted to gauge the importance of GMAT scores in interviews with PE firms / headhunters.
I've heard mixed replies from friends and recent alumni regarding the importance of the GMAT. Does the test add significant value to those who score in the top percentiles? What opportunities exist / don't exist for those that didn't take the test? Trying to decide whether to spend the next few months preparing for the test.
