applied - GMAT retake? [#permalink] New post 10 Jan 2013, 03:18
Hi,

I applied in Round 2 in Stanford, Harvard, MIT and Columbia. My application is strong, especially in the work experience part. The only problem is I took the GMAT only once and only got a 680 (Q47, V35), and I had to use that score in my application.

Questions
a) how strong chances do you think I have with that lowish score?
b) if I retake the GMAT on January 28th, do you think I could submit my new (higher) score to these schools? Would they accept it? I am sure I would score 700+

Thanks!

a) It's really hard to say knowing nothing else about you. Obviously, that is 30-40 points below average for your target programs. It is clearly a hurdle, but I can't give any assessment with just this bit of info.
b) You have to check with the schools individually. Most will accept but only consider it IF they haven't yet reviewed your file. If they reviewed it based on your original score, they will not review it again.

Best,
Linda
