Hi. I took the Kaplan on March 28 and can share some information that I learned. As many already know, the Kaplan score is added to your GPA score which is calculated using a simple formula.
4.0 GPA = 100 points
3.9 GPA = 99 points
3.65 GPA = 96.5 points
etc.
For example, in my case I have a 3.86 GPA and scored 87 on the Kaplan:
( 3.86 GPA + 87 Kaplan = 98.6 + 87 = 185.6 )

Last year, I believe a total score of 170 was enough to get accepted. For 2013 I was told that a score above 175 would "almost guarantee" acceptance and that a score of 170 or more would "likely" be enough to get accepted. Since it is a comparitive pool, those numbers will change based on the scores achieved within the pool.

For 2013, the highest Kaplan score has been 192 with five students scoring in the 90's, and "about thirty" scoring in the 80's. Those figures do not include the people that tested on March 28, the final day of testing.

Good luck to everyone!!!

That is a lot of great information Acanthuras, thanks!
With a 3.67 GPA and an 84 in the Kaplan's my score would be 175.75. I hope it is enough! It seems that this year the Kaplan scores were a lot higher than last year.
Fyi i took my test on Friday the 29th so that was the last day to take the test
Good luck to you even though I'm sure you are already in the program

Hey GTC2013, your score of 175.75 puts you in good shape for acceptance. I didn't know there was testing on Friday, I had tried for the last date available and must have missed that one!! Between the 28th and 29th there must have been 50 applicants getting tested, so the numbers I gave may increase somewhat - but I think your score is still well above what will be needed. Congrats!!!

Well this is my 2nd time around because I did not get in last year. My combined score this year is a 170.5 and I am not sure that I will get in with that. I noticed on my Kaplan results that I changed 6 correct answers to incorrect answers (this is what severe test anxiety will do for you) Hopefully it is enough?? If not, God must have another plan for me.

I was under the impression that the final score was calculated by multiplying GPA by 25 then divided by 2, and adding that score to half of the Kaplan score.

For example: (3.5x25)/2 + 77/2 = 82.25 (Final Score)

Have they changed it from this format to the one you posted above? I'm wondering if you were given that calculation from the school or from other applicants. I ask because I've heard so much different information on how they are going to calculate the final score. Thanks for all your help!

Thanks Acanthuras! I hope you are right, I want this so bad!
March 28th was the last date available. I had also signed up for the 28th but it looks like the system allowed more people to sign up than it was supposed. When they called me to let me know this the latest date available was the 21st so i signed up for that date. And the same thing happened again! So they called me and said they were going to open a new date for those of us that had had that problem.
