I’m worried about my score. What should I be aiming for?
Because we’re just setting a baseline for quantitative ability in the class, our score requirement is pretty reasonable. We are looking for evidence that you can keep up with the work and make an active contribution. You don’t need to smash records with a super high score. Last year, the average incoming student had an Executive Assessment score of 155.
I’m unhappy with my score. What should I do?
Talk to us! Our average score is representative of a range, so your score may well be acceptable. If not, you can retake the test and we’ll use your best score for the application. The most important thing is to speak with the admissions team so we can help you make a plan.
How does the test factor into my application as a whole?
The test score is just one piece of your application file. We look at the whole picture: the depth of your work and professional experience, the quality of your essays, your recommendations, and your interview performance. Overall, we are looking to determine your fit with Chicago Booth on a variety of levels.
How should I prepare?
Candidates tells us they generally need to spend a few weekends preparing for the test. My simple advice is to get the prep materials, study, and then give it a go. If you’re unhappy with your score, you can always take the test again, but at least you’ll know where you stand. Just be sure to give yourself enough time to retake the test as necessary.
