I gave GMAT 3 times got 450 first time then 490 second time and then 720 this time.

I have sent the scores of all these 3 attempts to my aspiring B-Schools and I am really freaked out right now.

Have I done wrong , I mean is it a bad thing to send score 490 then 720.

First, congrats on some AWESOME improvement. 450 to 720 is fantastic.

Second, no it does not matter that you have lower scores on your score report & that they have been sent to the school's you're interested in. Schools only consider your top score. (except for Tuck, among others, that look at your best combined split...that doesn't seem like it'll be an issue since I am assuming both your quant and verbal scores on the 720 are higher than the quant and verbal scores on the either of the previous exams).

Congrats! Focus on your applications now!

Wow! That's an amazing improvement in your score. Congratulations!

You've done nothing wrong, and you have no need for concern. You may be asked about the score difference in an interview. So, my only advice would be to have a good response prepared for that.

I hope this is helpful. If I can provide additional I formation, feel free to contact me.

Maybe you should become a GMAT test consultant and share your secret with others!

Best regards,

Hi Nick,

Hats-off on remarkable performance!!

B-schools consider the highest score, so need not to worry about it. Meanwhile, try your chances in b-schools by clicking http://tinyurl.com/c6b6qcu

You don't need any more help. You have given yourself all the help you need by getting your 720.

The only thing you need help with maybe, is drinking that nice bottle of champagne. And if you need help there, I'm always ready!

congrats on a great score! Bschools take the best score into consideration. People have attempted gmat 5 times and gotten to Harvard. .

If you think it might be your weakness, you can always use optional essay to clear things out and throw a skill or two there .
