710 is a good score. If I were you, I would focus all my energies on the application essays now. They are much more important than the small difference in the quant and verbal scores. If you are not convinced, speak to few students and alumni of your target schools.

Hi All: Last night I received a 710 on my second GMAT round (received 690 in May):
- Quant: 42 (57%ile) vs. 46 (73%ile) in May
- Verbal: 45 (99%ile) vs. 39 (87%ile) in May
So while I'm elated about Verbal, I'm taken aback by my poor Quant performance this time around.
Question: How will schools see this? Will they disregard it and decide that my Q46 is "sufficient"? I know Tuck (and perhaps others) will take the highest pieces and combine them, so I presume the Verbal bump bodes well for me should I apply there. But for all other schools, what does my situation portend?
