Linda,

Wanted your input on my situation.
Took the gmat over the weekend - (690,Q-48(86%),V-35(77%))

Do you think I need to retake to get into a top-10 school? Verbal is below 80% - a concern?
I think I can increase my score to 720-730 with another 1-1.5 months of prep- is it worth it or should i concentrate on essays/app?

Stats:
29,M, Indian citizen.
Masters GPA (US-Engg) : 3.85
7yrs US experience (as of 10/04)- Big5 IT consulting firm. Mostly F500 clients.

Current Work: Overachiever Award - last month
Consultant of the month awards - 3 times in 7yrs.
Extracurricular: Chair- Voluntary Minority Cultural Org

If you want to apply this year ( and you should) an extra 10-30 points on your GMAT will not make a big difference and your 77% verbal score is a minor concern, not a major one. For more on the GMAT's role in admissions, please see "The GMAT in MBA Admissions" Your time now can be better spent on community service, school research and visits, and the essays.
