700 (Q45, V41) [#permalink] New post 05 Nov 2008, 18:04
Well I havent been an active poster but I have been an active lurker and figured Id should share. Finished today with a 700, but very dissapointed in math. I had been hitting Q47 or better in all my recent practice exams and just had a bad run on the real thing. It seems like every problem I got was a problem I struggled with. Wish I had more detail to provide but I was frazzled after the first 15 or so. No big details on test day or anything like that, had a good nights sleep, had a noon appt so I slept in til 9:30, did a couple questions to get my mind working, showered ate and off I went.

Basic Info:

GMATprep1: Q44, V41 - 700
MGMAT1: Q47, V33? - 660
MGMAT2: Q47, V38 - 700
MGMAT3, Q47, V44 -740
GMATprep2: Q49(couple repats from OGs), V42 - 740

Again, I had been expecting/hoping for a Q47, V41 -710 on the real deal but I wont complain about a 700. If anyone wants any more info or has specific questions, Ill check back later tonight and tomorrow. Also, if anyone is still reading and has an opinion on how much better a 710 or 720 looks on an app than a 700 Im curious to hear any opinions. Im applying R2 and feel that the 700 is going to be a great disadvantage. Applying to Harvard, Wharton, Duke, MIT(sloan), Texas, Rice.

firstly, congratulations. That is a very nice score, IMHO.

I'd been a lurker myself here...since 2003(howzat?). Had some family priorities that kept me away from MBA. I'm back with a vigor and have Wharton, Kellogg, Stanford on my wish list.

I'm sure you'll get a ton of responses to your post, but if I were you..I wouldn't worry about 700 versus a 'coulda 710 or 720'. In my opinion, a strongly put together application more than makes up for the 10 or 20 points on the GMAT.

Good luck with your apps...Cheers

I agree with the point about creating a solid application. If you're planning on applying in R2, your time would be better spent on applications. As to the significance of a 720 vs. a 700, that simply depends on the rest of your profile.

My suggestion: Give it your best with the 700!

Congrats on that fantastic score :)
