Application Question [#permalink] New post 14 Jun 2011, 18:29
Hi Paul,

I really appreciate your input on my dilemma. I took the GMAT recently and scored a 710, but my split is 75% in Quant, 92% in Verbal, or 46 and 41, respectively. Although my current work experience is highly quantitative (marketing analytics involving advanced statistical modeling), my undergrad transcript shows 4 C+s in my quant courses and my overall GPA is 3.21 (the grades that are picking up my GPA focus more on softer skill courses). I will fortunately have recommendations that will vouch for my practical quant skills.

I'm planning on retaking the GMAT but I'm having some doubts about retaking the test. My main concern is whether a lesser score (section level, or overall) would be perceived negatively by an admissions committee. Would a worse score hurt my chances? Or is taking the test again simply taking away time that I could otherwise devote to my applications?

I'm only targeting top schools, which makes this that much more of a potential problem. My current wishlist: Stern, Sloan, Tuck, INSEAD, LBS, HEC Paris, and possibly Cambridge or Oxford.

I appreciate any feedback you can provide.

Thanks in advance!
