The decision to grant the GMAT/GRE waiver is made at the discretion of the admissions committee. If granted a GMAT/GRE waiver, the admissions committee may, in rare cases, still ask you to submit a GMAT or GRE score to aid in evaluating your candidacy for the Professional Evening MBA program. In the event we need this additional information, we will inform you once your application has been initially reviewed.

Thank you for writing this! My GMAT score is the component I am most worried about in the applications I am submitting round 1 this fall. I did everything you recommended in the article to supplement my GMAT. 🙂 I retook the GMAT (still same score & even took a Kaplan class), enrolled in an online MBA Math course and did excellent, and addressed the score in the optional essays where I highlighted my career accomplishments as a financial analyst, discussed the supplemental course work, as well as noted my high GPA in a quant heavy undergrad degree. I also had a consultant review my essays to make sure they addressed the prompts directly and had a good story line.

Other factors that are considered are the candidate's prior academic success, GRE or GMAT exam scores, and communication skills as evidenced in the application essays.
