700.. Should I give it again? [#permalink] New post 24 May 2007, 20:50
Hi,
I gave GMAT today and got 700, V35, Q49.
I am not sure if I should be happy with this or should I go for another attempt.

BTW, I am Ambar, from India, 5 yrs IT work ex, with 3 yrs work ex in US. I am opting for 1 year MBA in India and European Inst like INSEAD and et al.
I checked the sites and found that the average of all European Inst is around 680-690, so the score is good for that. But looking into the Indian colleges, average of ISB is 705 and IIM A 695.
HAd my score be aroud 680, I would have definitly considered for a re-take but with 700 in hand, do I still need to go for another one?

BTW, I have a big collection of notes, which I prepared during examination and will upload in a while.

That's easy to answer.... NO !!

If you take GMAT again (Even after scoring 700), then you are certainly overestimating the value of GMAT.

The application process is not too far, and like every other Indian, you may underestimate the value of and time required in the essay/recommendation/interview process. As far as I have understood (And I am obviously no expert here), Indians get rejected from top programs for reasons other than GMAT (As long as they are above 700). So focus on those areas.

if you strongly believe you can score better given your time schedule, then you may consider to retake it. Esp that you are from a competitive applicant pool

If you think you can improve the score by at least 30 points, then you should go for it otherwise 700 is good enough score.

I agree unless you can gain at least 30+ points its pointless to take it again.

A 700 puts you right around the average at basically every school there is, though Indians generally have some of the higher scores. You are better off putting the effort you would put into studying into your applications.
