ADVICE NEEDED [#permalink] New post 21 Jul 2014, 11:34
Hello Everyone,

I need advice whether to re-take the GMAT.
My story, very briefly (hopefully there will be a detailed happy debrief someday :D):
I decided to get an MBA last summer (2013), I studied, and studied then took the test 3 times (600, 570, 570). Had a few personal issues that complicated things abit at the time, I stopped preparing April > June. Resumed studying, took the test today and got a 650 (Q42, V38). My last practice scores were 700 and 690 (Veritas prep), also I've been consistently scoring higher on the quant section (GMATfocus 46-50), but I just wasn't really too sharp today, not sure why! messed up my timing abit..etc.

My DREAM, or should I say "Target", school is MIT Sloan <3333. My GPA is 3.28/4 of a 5 year post-doctoral program. Should I re-take the test? I should probably add that I am currently interviewing for consulting positions at top firms and hoping to land a position at one of them. This will probably further strengthen my apps??

Please advvvviiiceee, sooo wanna make this happen!

Your profile looks good but your Quant score is a little low for MIT Sloan. In my opinion, a retake with a target of Q48+ will be desirable. You might want to get in touch with an MIT Sloan specific consultant to further discuss your profile.

Here is a post that discusses whether you should retake: http://www.veritasprep.com/blog/2013/01 ... -the-gmat/

First, veritas prep tests scores are normally above actual gmat form what i have read. I would suggest getting in touch with the adcom and check whether you need to imprve your score, since u hav not listed the avg gmat score of MIT.
Kudofy if you found it helpful.
