The primary purpose of the Graduate Management Admissions Test may be winning the favor of B-school admissions committees, but for many students, the scores they get on the GMAT will reach an audience that might be even more importantjob recruiters. For students with strong applications but lackluster scores, some career services directors will advise admitted students to retake the exam. New admits who go that route typically take the test after they have put down a deposit but before they start classes, said Stacey Rudnick, director of MBA career services at The University of Texas’ McCombs School of Business. Rudnick said she’s advised a few recent admits that it might be worth retaking the test if they think they can score higher.
