applied - GMAT retake? [#permalink] New post 10 Jan 2013, 03:19
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!

Hi elgreco1,

Thanks for posting. I recommend that you retake the GMAT and submit your new score. The reason is that your highest GMAT score is self-reported on your application, so admissions teams will focus on your best score. There is no harm in taking the test again.

If you would like, we provide free GMAT advice here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/gmat-files/

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
