Applicants to business school are evaluated through several criteria, including their GMAT scores. As this video explains, you can approximate your GMAT advantage or disadvantage by using the +/- 30 rule.
The +/- 30 rule is the point swing that defines how well a person did on the GMAT. You can determine your own GMAT success by gauging your score against your prospective business school’s average score. For instance, if the business school to which you applied has a GMAT benchmark score of 720, you would have a definite advantage over the student competition with a GMAT score of 750. Alternately, you would be at a disadvantage with a score of 690. Keep in mind that your GMAT score is only one of several factors used to evaluate your application.
