Hi eternal_insane

I too applied for additional GMAT score for another school from mba.com and they too haven't received, I emailed GMAT people but I got no response.
Did Smeal B school recieve your score ??
Let me know if u have any idea how to know the status of this report.

Rohit


Hey

even I had used the online facility and taken the exam in 2005 but sent the score report in 2006
Now the problem is dat Pearson(the new vendor for gmat) has different school codes....ithas digits and nos. in it... whereas ETS had diff codes...
I had mailed to GMATCandidateServicesAmericas@pearson.comand got an immediate respose from them. They said that they have already sent the score to the school and to contact them but still havent heard from them....
The best way to send the scores to them is by phone..They have an India no too...
it is +91 (0) 120 532 4628, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Indian Standard Time
