100 Point GMAT Improvement, Supplemental Essay Needed? [#permalink] New post 05 Dec 2011, 17:25
Hi mbaMission,
I've taken the GMAT twice - first time was in October and second time today. First go around I was really upset about my 640 (31Q 44V 6 AWA) as I'd been practice-testing in the 690-710 range consistently.
I refocused my efforts, realized I'd been prepping the quant in the wrong ways, and retested today at 740 (48Q, 44V AWA TBD). As you can imagine I am THRILLED with my new score. I believe that my first quant score was somewhat of an anomaly due to preparing incorrectly and getting a question set that played to my weaknesses.

Question: How, if at all, do I need to address a 100 point GMAT improvement (all in quant) on my applications?

Hello LadyRoadWarrior, thanks for your question.

Congrats on the much improved score! I would simply let the second score speak for itself and not complicate things with an explanation. The programs just want to know that you have the mental horsepower to handle the work and contribute in class; your 740 demonstrates that. I do not think anything more need be said.

Best of luck,
Brian

Thanks for your response - this confirms my gut feelings, which is to leave well enough alone.
