borderline applicant or longshot? [#permalink] New post 07 Dec 2005, 14:11
I've taken the GMAT 3 times and my scores are as follow...
1st try - 620
2nd - 650
3rd - 680 (47 math 81%, 37 verbal 83%, 90% tile overall)

I am confident that I can break 700 next time. Do you recommend taking it a 4th time and applying third round or going with the current score and applying second round. My other stats (listed below) are pretty good. I'm interested in a top 10 school. Whats your advice?

=> 3.6 GPA (University of Michigan)
=> 2 years investment banking (buldge bracket firm in NYC)
=> 2 years private equity (middle-market firm in Greenwich, CT)
=> Extra-circulars include Junior Achievement (teaching business classes to highschoolers)
=>Good recs from bosses

No, don't take it it again. Trust me... 680 is good enough to get you in anywhere. Taking it again will just distract you and make the adcomms wonder if you "get" what they're really looking for. Now is the time to focus on the more important stuff, like your essays!

Ok - thanks for the advice. I'll roll with it. I'm just concerned because I'm below the 700 average. However, I'll take your word for it regarding this issuse.
