After looking around these forums and other places, I've noticed that most people have the opposite problem. I took the GMAT twice (650 and then 700) and my score improved from Q: 44 V: 37 to Q: 43 V: 42. Unfortunately, my quant dropped from a pretty bad 69% to 67%. However, I majored in Econ from a top 20 private university and took calculus, corporate finance, accounting, etc. (B or B- average in them, but worse in my major...I was never meant to be an economist
) so I'm hoping that helps to alleviate some fears about my quant ability. Now, my biggest question is, do I have a shot getting into school with my quant the way it is? I'm shooting for Duke, Columbia, Yale, Ross, Darden, Vanderbilt, UNC, and UT Austin.
The only school I found so far that shows the middle 80% of broken down GMAT scores is Yale and my quant is within that 80% (to my knowledge, that's a good thing).
I reallllllly don't want to take the GMAT again. Frankly, I do not standardized test well and I'm afraid that I'll actually do worse if I decide to try again.
