1) Which score should i actually report on the MBA applications? While the difference between a 690 and 700 may be marginal, im not entriely happy with my quant score in my second attempt (which equated to a 69 percentile), however, this was completely overshadowed by my verbal score. Whereas the first score has a more balanced breakup between the 2 topics I WOULD REPORT YOUR SECOND ATTEMPT -- THE MORE BALANCED SCORE. IT IS THE ONE THAT ADMISSIONS WILL FIND MOST COMPELLING.
2) The fact that i bombed the GMAT in my 3rd and final attempt - will that bear any significance on my overall application and as such, do you feel it necessary for me to give a 4th attempt for the GMAT. NO. MOST SCHOOLS, ON THEIR APPLICATIONS, ASK FOR YOUR ONE HIGHEST SCORE AND ONLY CONSIDER THIS. PEOPLE HAVE BAD DAYS AND YOU OBVIOUSLY HAD ONE. DO NOT WORRY.
A little bit of information about me: I'll be 26 years by the time of commencement of the MBA program with 6 years of professional work experience in financial services consulting. I have graduated in an Economics Honours (second class) degree for a top-3 institute in the UK (excluding Oxbridge), and am also a Chartered Certified Accountant by trade. THIS IS THE IDEAL TIME FOR YOU TO APPLY. I WOULD NOT WAIT ANY LONGER. THERE ARE SOME SCHOOL THAT WILL APPRECIATE YOUR CANDIDACY MORE THAN OTHERS -- SO YOU HAVE TO BE SMART ABOUT WHERE YOU APPLY. ALSO, REALIZE THAT ALL OF YOUR MARGIN OF ERROR HAS BEEN USED UP WITH YOUR GMAT, SO YOUR APPLICATION HAS TO BE TOP QUALITY -- ESSAYS, RECOMMENDATIONS, INTERVIEW, RESUME, ETC.
Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
