Hello. You have given me such great information in the past (remember, I was the improv comedy guy?), maybe you can give a little more. Below is my post from about a month or so ago. I was asking you the ever popular question, "what are my chances?"
At that time, my GMAT was 640 (2nd attempt). I took the GMAT again a couple weeks after the post and got a 610 (3rd attempt). I was not happy with it, I knew I could do better, so I took it again on Monday. Got a 710 (Q48, V40). How does my profile look now with this GMAT score? I can guess that it looks a lot better, but I am worried about having taken the GMAT 4 times.
My reasoning is that I knew I could do better (based on practice test scores) and that I wanted to make sure that I put my best foor forward in every aspect of the application. What do you think?

Again, thanks for all your help

Wow, that's great news! Our rough, unofficial rule of thumb is to try and take it no more than three times. BUT, your last score is significantly better than the rest, so I think it was a worthwhile gamble. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

You've nailed the GMAT, so now stop worrying about it, and start concentrating on the rest of your apps!
