    yupp it is abraham thomas ... and if anyone has watched that interview on "Good Morning India", you will notice two freshers sneaking in from behind from time to time .. he he .. one of them is me !! he is in Tokyo right now . oh btw, he never used the 800 score because he never applied to any univ. He got such a wonderful job and such a huge load of pay (I think the highest paid to an IITB'ian at that time) that he took up the job.


    ps: I just checked out the IITB site, and Thomas was 4th not 2nd as I had mentioned earlier.

    GMAT Record

    IITB Student crashes the GMAT ! Abraham Thomas, 4th year B.Tech. student of Engineering Physics, scored a straight 800 out of 800 in the GMAT examination held last week. Thomas is also the Gen. Secretary, Hostels and represents students in the Senate. GMAT is the qualifying entrance examination for entry into US Universities for doing MBA Programme. Thomas is only the 4th person, ever to have achieved this score. The earlier three were : Robert McNamara (former World Bank Chief), Shankar Balakrishnan, ex-IIT Madras and now with World Bank and Namesh Marjani, a Bombay Commerce student. Congratulations! Abraham Thomas.

    Spiderman,
    I read in the Indian Express that he was running from pillar to pillar to kind of get the scholarship to the tune of Rs. 30 lakh at that time. Very sad to know that he did not use that magic score at all.
    I do not know, but I might just be going along on that route. The stakes involved in plunging into a Real Top Program are absolutely frightening if you go by a worst-case scenario analysis. 50-100 lakh is no joke for anyone but the very elite in India!
    Wharton's India Alumni reads something like the who's-who: Ambani, Mittal etc.

    I happen to know someone who got a perfect score on the LSAT. I am wondering how rare it is to get that a 180 on that exam?

    Re: Number of 800 scores

    I've done some more research. It sound like there are about 50 people a year who score an 800. This past year Stanford rejected multiple 800 score recipients. INSEAD has rejected others in previous years. You can also see from some GMAT score ranges for accepted students at various universities that there are other people who've scored an 800 and enrolled in the programs. I'm not sure why they think in India that there have been only 4 in history. The evidence I've found seems to indicate otherwise.

    please do note that we had said that the statistics were for 1998. and it might very well be possible that after 1998 there might have been more people scoring 800's. and its not the whole of India which is thinking this way. Its just me and may be vingmat.

    It's funny he can score so high on graduate level exams, but his SAT score is far from perfect.

    Reviving old thread

    Sorry for reviving this old thread but just was curious. What is the number of rights in each section to get a 800 ? And what about 790/780/770 ? How much does a 51 in quant warrant ?

    BTW I bumped into some info on Abraham Thomas here:

    http://www.iitb.ac.in/~insight/issue...tian_tokyo.htm


    I know of a guy in MIT Sloan by the name Raghu Subramanian who had an 800. And I am sure though it is not that rare, it surely is not 80 people are rejected by Stanford each year with that score
