Tweeting Admissions Advice for Prospective Students
On the second Wednesday of each month we give schools and prospective students an opportunity to connect using our #MBACHAT Twitter Chat. For one hour GMAC (@OfficialGMAT), Jackie Buchy (@MasonMBA) an admissions professional from George Mason University and an admissions representative from Penn State University (@SmealMBA) took questions from students regarding the admissions process, next generation GMAT Exam and more.
@OfficialGMAT: Hi everyone! Welcome to the chat. This is Jackie Buchy from George Mason University. #mbachat
@MasonMBA: Hello everyone. We are happy to be here with @officialGMAT & @MasonMBA. #mbachat
Q: Is there a mimimum cut off score you consider while screening the applications?
@MasonMBA: We look for a 550 – 650 range but will consider each piece of your application when making a decision #mbachat
@SmealMBA: We do not have a minimum score when screening, but our average is around a 650. Class Profile http://t.co/grVySVFL #mbachat
