Ultimately, the entire package matters (GMAT, work experience, application essays, interviews, recommendations, and undergraduate GPA). Since you are applying for business school, work experience is extremely important. Upon enrollment, the average amount of work experience for each student is nearly 5 years, which is fairly substantial.

You should also consider the brand of the school. The student body at Columbia is diverse, cosmopolitan, and international. The curriculum of the program also allows for “deep dives” into specific business areas. Quantitative ability is generally considered a major factor in admissions.
