There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Can anyone else back this up? I got a 760 - 99th percentile, but my split was Q47 (73rd) V47 (99th) What is so annoying about this, is that I am quite confident I could have done better. This awful drilling started during my IR section so during the break, I went to go find the construction workers to ask if they wouldn't mind not drilling for about 75mn while I took the quant section. Luckily, they agreed to hold off on the drilling, but, unfortunately, my little adventure caused me to go over the break by 4mn so I only had 71mn for the quant section. I'm tempted to take it again because I think I could do better, but, ugh, I am so tired of GMAT study, and, while I have gotten a 90 percentile or above on every practice test in verbal, I might not get 99th V again, so although I could get the Q score up to 80th percentile, I could end up with a lower overall score if the verbal is slightly lower.

Please, for the love of everything, don't even think about taking the GMAT again. You know what Stanford likes more than anything? More than people with 800 GMATs?? Really amazing, passionate, crazy, wild, fun, interesting, deep, thoughtful essays.... spend your energy there. At this point this is the best thing you can do for yourself.

This post received KUDOS
To answer the original question, if the applicant had done poorly in quantitative subjects and/or had little quantitative experience in his or her job then the applicant would rather have the 720 with the 98% percentile quantitative as not to corroborate difficulty in quantitative subjects.
To answer the subsequent poster, with a 760 do not worry about the 73% quantitative. Focus on introspection and producing the best application possible, especially the What Matters Most essay.
