The first time I took the GMAT, I biffed the math and only got a 670, but my goal score was only 720 so I'm STOKED with a 740!! Too bad I applied to law school this year and not b-school. I was holding out so I could get into law programs and then do the JD/MBA, but now I might wait until next year to apply. With a 3.9 GPA, I think I'm a good shot for top schools. Thanks for this board, and thanks to everybody who helped me with math over the last few weeks.
I got a 680 last time I took it because I did horrible in math. I hope I can improve the way you did. What did you do to get your math score up? I always get extremely nervous and panic during the math section.
