Your BA / 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 that 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 is as a Cum Laude.

• If at the time of applying you have not yet received all grades from your BA/BS degree:

o If you expect to have all of your grades by the program start date, subtract one point. However, you should contact each of the programs and explain your situation and evaluate their responses. (At ALT we have consultants who specialize in applying to business school immediately after your undergraduate studies. Contact us today to get help with your applications.)

o If you do not expect to complete your degree by the program start date: contact each of the 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.
