Congrats! Looking forward to it.

720 is a great score - if its an even split, i'd be very tempted to let it be.

Congrats man! Waiting for ur debrief..I believe anything above 690 is a good score(unless it is skewed),better work on other aspects of ur application :)

Awesome, congratulations! A 720 is an amazing score, and you definitely deserve it after all of your contributions here.

Enjoy your break from the GMAT, Marcab! We'll look forward to the debrief once you have a chance to sleep for 12 hours. :-D

A well deserved 720 Marcab, now Stanford is not that far :). If you have the time take a 1-2 month break and hit hard to hit
760. Inspite of what others may say, one doesnot score a 760 by schmoozing, pedigree or by being lucky.

Congratulations! Thats a wonderful score!
To be honest i am surprised why you think of retaking it, if it is just to satisfy your self esteem, meaning that you normally score well above that score then yes, but if it is about improving your chances of getting into your desired business school then i think you should not. This score is above the any average GMAT score of any elite school that exist! So why to worry about GMAT. I would suggest to concentrate on other parts of the application!

Cannot wait to read your debrief!

thanks AbhiJ.
Well obviously Stanford is one of my dream schools, but I have to improve every aspect of my application so that I can afford it.
Yes, I am right now looking for a break and will perhaps hit hard to score high.
