I'll try to keep this short.
I took the GMAT back in April earlier this year and scored a 730. Recently, after seeking out advice from an MBA grad, I was advised to send my score report to the school I am interested in immediately and re-sit for the GMAT (given the fact that I feel I had a bad test day; i was scoring in the 750-770 range for practice) and only send those scores if I improve.
Back in April, I went back and forth in my head and ultimately decided not to retake given my split of Q49/V41 (i seriously think i was 1 or 2 questions from a 750... no, it's not about how many right/wrong, but i'm confident i missed some easy ones...)
Now this new advice has me thinking...
1) Obviously if i'm confident I can score 750+ I should re-take, but at this point will it reflect poorly on me for not having re-taken the test earlier this summer or in May (where has the time gone btw...)?
2) I was also advised to apply to all my schools (+/- 5) in R1... when exactly is the last day I could take the GMAT and have it valid for R1? I figure it is the actual application deadline, but I haven't seen it written anywhere
3) the IR reason will be brand new to me. how heavily will this be weighted?
Thanks in advance,
can anyone advise? i see a lot of views but no posts!
