Your BA / GMAT        
BA / BS Grades (GPA): GMAT:
           
* If your GMAT score doesn't appear in the table - find the closest score and adjust the points (add/subtract 0.5-1 point).
* If you have two BA degrees (or a dual degree) and only one is with distinction, use the level which is exactly in-between. If there is no level exactly in-between, use the higher level. For example, if your GPA from one degree GPA is 2.9 and the other degree is 3.3, score it as a 3.0-3.19. If one degree is 3.2 and the other degree is Magna Cum Laude, score it like a Cum Laude.  
* If at the time of applying you have not yet received all grades from your BA/BS degree:
- If you expect to have all of your grades by the MBA start date, subtract one point. However, you should contact each of the MBA programs and explain your situation and evaluate their response. (At Vocaz we have consultants who specialize in applying to business school immediately after your undergraduate studies. Contact us today to get help with your MBA applications.)
- If you do not expect to complete your degree by the MBA start date: contact each of the MBA programs, explain your situation and see if you are eligible to apply.
* The change in GMAT prefix from 690 to 700 (from 6 to 7) has a significant impact.

Scoring Legend        
The gap between your score and the number of points assigned to each school determines how likely you are to be admitted:
-7 or less = Stretch
-5 / -6 = Closer to being a Stretch than to being Competitive
-4 = Between competitive and stretch
-3 = Close to being Competitive than to being a Stretch
-1 / -2 = Competitive
0 = Competitive with potential for a significant scholarship
+1 = Competitive/Strong with potential for a significant scholarship
+2 or greater = Strong with potential for a significant scholarship
           
Do you need more points to be a strong candidate for your top choice program? Vocaz can help you get there. Contact us and find out how you can strengthen your application
           
Competitive:          
The admission committee will hesitate before making a decision. Estimated admission chances are somewhere around 50%. The result will be greatly influenced by:
     a. Profiles of other applicants in the same round, and
     b. The identity (and mood!) of the admission committee members reviewing the application.
           
Strong with potential for a significant scholarship:
There is a good chance that you will be accepted, possibly with a significant scholarship. Estimated admission chances are somewhere around 75-80%.
           
Stretch:          
Candidates with similar profiles rarely get accepted to this program. Estimated admission chances are somewhere around 10%.
