650 to 690 Q50, V34 [#permalink] New post 25 Sep 2008, 09:56
Hey guys,

Just got back from test centre. After a low 650 on August, I hoped to get a 700+. I don't know what happened but I scored a 690. I'm not disappointed with my quant score but verbal is not that good.

I don't think that I'm going to retake the GMAT. I don't have any more materials to study. I've finished all MGMAT exams, all KAPLAN Cats, got over PS CR Bible twice, MGMAT SC Bible 3 times and at least 10 times GMATPrep.

I know this is not a bad score, but I knew that I could get much better. In the 8 Kaplan Cats my lowest score was 710 and the 3 highest were 750, 760, 770. In the MGMAT I started with 640 (The very first exam I took even before the first GMAT I took) and finished with a 780.

Anyways, Let me remind you something. In the final part of my preparation, SC was the part of the Verbal exam that I feel most confident with. But I'm sure that the worst part I did on the real exam was SC. It was too hard. On 4-6 questions I couldnt even bring the answer choices to 2 options.

I don't know how competitive my profile is going to be with such a score and with an undergrad GPA of 3.9. I just graduated from a university in Turkey with an engineering major. I was the top student in my department and number three in the entire faculty.

At which of the top 20 schools do you think I might have a chance ?

UVA Darden ?
Northwestern ?
Darthmouth ?

If I start an MBA program on September 2009, I will have a total work experience of 15 months.At which of the top 20 schools do you think I might have a chance ?

I totally agree to what oziozzie said. SC just killed me though it was something I was very confident about. I spent more time on SC during exam as it all kind of looked different to me and with that got screwed with timing for RC and CR.
