I'm sure it is better to re-write the GMAT and get the best score as Schools say they only look at the latest score.

My Question is : What is better ?

1) Write 4 times : 450, 550, 600, 720

2) Write once and get 680

the 720 [#permalink] New post 18 May 2003, 17:20
I think they only see your three most recent scores (check the MBA.com site to verify this), and a 720 is more impressive than a 680, but both are great scores.

Rather odd question, though...are you planning on blowing off your prep for the first go around and just keep retaking? Kind of a waste of time. Best thing is to prep diligently and take the test when you're ready, but if you've already gone through 4 sittings, don't worry about it. Especially if you got a 720 on the last try. Most schools don't care how many times you take it.

I haven't written yet and plan to only write once.

My question was : Would schools still prefer the 720 even though it has taken the person 4 times ? over a one timer to get 680 ?

I'd say 490, 550., 700 is better than just 700.

This way you can show improvement and make an argument out of this. There is a whole bunch of kids out there with 700's but very few of them started out with 490 - it is a good chance to make a nice memorable story for the adcom.

I would say you have a stronger position with 490, 500, 550, 650

than with 680 or even 700.

I think progress and improvement are crucial. This demonstrates your persistence, ability to achieve goals, and work hard. If you can improve so much in GMAT, what about the areas that you are really good at?
