710 - Retake? (Guessed on 6-7 of quant) [#permalink] New post 02 May 2012, 07:25
Hello all,

I got a 710 on my GMAT and am wondering if i should retake.

To give you some background, I am applying to Harvard this Summer and their average GMAT for the 2+2 program is ~730. During my last GMAT attempt, I ran out of time in the quant and started guessing (some without even reading the question) at 31/37. I ended with a 47/41 split and my quant is 76percentile.


My question to you, is it worth a retake?

PS more motivation is that if I don't get into Harvard, I will be applying to many top schools after I graduate and I do not want to have to deal with the updated GMAT.

I don't know if you should but I would for the sanity of my mind at least. Otherwise, i would always worry about it and ask the question to myself.

I would not put a ton of time into the GMAT (sounds like timing tweaking and less stress will give you another 20-30 points potentially).

You can take the GMAT once every 31 days, so I hope you can make it by Jun 2nd

Yes, that's what my logic was. I have a test scheduled for May 30th just before the new test arrives :lol:

If you have a plan to improve your time management then I would definitely retake. I can't believe that Q47 is only 76th percentile.
