Advantage Testing GMAT Q&A

Is a 730 GMAT score good?

A 730 is a good GMAT score for most business school applicants. For students taking the GMAT between January 2015 and December 2018, a score of 730 was at the 96th percentile. However, a 730 is around the average score for many leading business schools (e.g., the mean GMAT score of UChicago Booth’s Class of 2021 was 730).

When setting goals, you should take into account the mean and 75th percentile scores at the schools to which you are planning to apply, your practice test scores, and the other strengths of your business school application. For example, if your score is above the 75th percentile of students admitted to your top-choice business school, you can feel confident that you have a “good” score. To determine what GMAT score you will need to present a strong application, you can look up the relevant score statistics on the websites of the schools to which you are applying or on national ranking sites.
