Is there a minimum GMAT or GRE score required to apply?

No. We accept applicants with a wide range of test scores.

What is the range of GMAT scores for accepted students?

The Admissions Board hopes that all applicants will recognize the following: the full range of GMAT scores is very broad, that there is no "minimum" score requirement, and that the GMAT is just one piece of data among the many used to evaluate an application. 50% of the Class of 2009 scored between 700 and 740 on the GMAT.
