I go to a semi-target university and am majoring in Econ with Accounting minor.
I did not even get an interview with . I have 3.85 (3.95 econ GPA) but I think my lack of experience, sucky cover letter, and low SAT score hurt my chance.
I am currently interning at aand will be interning or this summer. I am also a VITA tax preparer if that holds any weight.
I expect hitting very close to 3.9 by Fall.
Everything seems in line except for my SAT score which is about 2000.
I feel like scoring high on the GMAT will mend this damage while demonstrating my intellectual abilities, willingness to get an MBA and lastly that I am a strong candidate even for MBA admissions.
BUT, at the same time, I feel like I should solely. Time I spend on studying GMAT will help me with the interview in many ways, but it is still time that could have been spent on practicing and reading over cases.
How much weight do interviewers place on these standardized testing scores?
Should I just focus on prepping for case interviews with all that I have on my resume?
hope you have a fun three day weekend :)
