700 ( Q 47, V40) [#permalink] New post 27 Oct 2007, 17:00
Update: AWA 5.0

Hi Guys

I gave my GMAt today and scored a 700. Right on the mark.
Thanks a lot for all your help. I owe a special thanks to everyone over here.....

You guys have been quite an inspiration in my journey to a 700 score.

I would say that even though 700 is a pretty solid score, I am a bit disappointed as I scored 760 and 710 in my GMAT preps.

I have been studying on and off for a while now. But due to my tremendous work pressure and family issues, I have not been that consistent.

So, here is my question to all the Gurus here, is 700 a good score?

Is there any difference in a 700 and a 740 or more, when it comes to Admissions in good colleges?

Regarding the GMAT, it was no diiferent than the GMAT preps. I had around 10 minutes left in Quant and 15 mins left in verbal.

I actually thought that I had aced the exam, but obviously I must have made a lot of mistakes which I did not realize.

The only piece of advise is just stick to the OG's and this forum :-)

well, first, congrats on the 700.

GMAT is just one "filter" for the top schools. The margin of error is 40 points give-take. so technically, u would be in the 680-720 pool. if u have time, i would advise that u take it again.

Yes, there is a difference. For the top 15 schools, a 700 would be an average result for admitted students, while a 740 would be a point of strength. The official margin of error is actually 26 points (or rather it was last year).

If you are from a tough demographic (and I'm guessing you are based on your syntax), a 700 will be considered a marginally weak point when compared with others.
