Is My GMAT Score Good Enough?

Fri, 2016-08-19 10:14

As a numerical score, the GMAT hints at offering a solid ‘pass-rate’ for potential students to work towards.

If only it were so simple.

Business schools everywhere tend to publish an average score, rather than a minimum score, erring on the side of caution. Their reasoning is that a lower GMAT score combined with a number of other attributes could still mean success come admissions time.

Alain Duguet and Gilbert Prince crisscrossed Canada and the United States together a number of times, two truck drivers cramped in a relatively small space.

"I'm talking about him in the past tense…" Duguet said. He sighed. His voice trailed off.

Un camion-citerne rempli de diesel qui s'enflamme au coeur d'une grande ville, en pleine heure de pointe : ce genre d'événement donne froid dans le dos. L'accident survenu cette semaine sur l'autoroute 40 est certes tragique, mais il aurait pu être encore plus grave.
