Average Rice Business School GMAT Score

While there is no GMAT cut-off for Rice Business School, you should be familiar with the general range of GMAT scores at the school:

Mean GMAT score:

  • 672

Median GMAT score:

  • 680

Middle 80%:

  • 620-740

If you want to be competitive at Rice, you should try to score 670 or higher and no lower than 620, though it is possible to gain acceptance with a lower score. While no GMAT score will technically exclude you from consideration for admission, a low GMAT score could raise a red flag.

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 important. Upon enrollment, the average amount of work experience for each student is approximately 4.5 years.

You should also consider the brand of the school. Rice offers a supportive faculty, a world-class technical business education and excellent proximity to recruiters in the Houston area and particularly those in the energy industry. During the interview and in your essays, you should be prepared to articulate how you will contribute to the community.
