Got a 700 and need help! [#permalink] New post 18 May 2004, 03:43
Hi,

I took my GMAT a few weeks ago and scored a 700 (V-34, M-50). My essay scores are yet to arrive. It was rather disappointing because, through my prep, I always scored between 720 (it was my diagnostic score) and 780.

I have an eight-month work experience and right now taking a break. I plan to apply for a course starting in Fall 2005 and hope to goto an Ivy League institution. So, what should I be doing? Taking the test again or trying to make a great application? Some suggest that the score is high enough (and might be I score lesser in a re-try, what would schools think of me) and I should be finding my next job. However, equally compelling are some others who suggest that I should take the test again in full vigor (because this surely wasn't my best attempt at the test).

The situation has gotten me in a spot. A day before the test, a friend asked me, "What score would you loathe?" and I had replied, "700! Because I wouldn't know what to do next." And that's what has come true!

Hope to get the forum's perspective.

Best Regards,
Gaurav

Welcome to GMAT Club

Congratulations on your score.

We have two very qualified individuals running two forums, Accepted.com and MBA Game Plan. I am confident that you will get great advice there.
Please ask the same question there. Also, please provide as much detail (background, experience, extra curriculars) to them. As you might know, MBA admissions are about the overall qualifications of the applicant.

Good luck

Sincerely
Praetorian
