The bad news is, you can't avoid the GMAT torture if you intend to go to graduate business school. Because of the grade inflation that skews GPAs, most graduate business schools now require the GMAT as a way of separating the wheat from the chaff. Now for the good news: By doing well on the GMAT you can overcome years of goofing off in school. A dynamite GMAT score can get you into a graduate program that otherwise wouldn't look twice at you and your C+ GPA. On the other hand, even with a GPA of 4.0 froma top-flight school, you'll be facing some pretty stiff competition, and a high GMAT score could make the difference between being admitted or not.
