How old were you guys when you took the GMAT and how old will you guys be when you take the GMAT? I don't plan on going to get my MBA until I've had at least 4-5 years of work experience under my belt, but the average age seems to be trending down.. I'm envisioning myself going when I'm like.. I dunno.. 27? But that seems old by today's standards.. My superiors said that if you're White or Asian, you need at LEAST a 700 to be competitive for the top 8 schools and ideally a 750 to safely be considered a top candidate (assuming your interviews, essays, work experience, leadership etc. are all good as well). Anything over a 750 and the marginal advantage diminishes greatly, apparently.
