oh great. as if i wasn’t feeling enough pressure

a recent study by test prep firm knewton found that ten gmat points = $3,000 in mba pay.

i’m taking this with a grain of salt though, because it’s not based on an individual’s gmat score…it’s the median school gmat score and its relationship with rankings.  i think most employers don’t care too much about your gmat score, unless you’re going into consulting and possibly finance.

and although it will be difficult to get into a top-10 school with a lower gmat, it can be done and the school makes more of a pay difference than the actual gmat.

and c’mon, it’s a test prep firm…they want to scare you into paying for their services.
