your score is exceptional, GREAT JOB!. I understand your frustration, you've been an encouragment to a lot of us here on the gclub.
I think with a 720 you've crossed the mark needed to get into all top schools. Good luck on the applications!

Ugh, that's a tough break, BSD. I never thought a 48Q/42V would even be in range of a 720. After all, there's a 49Q/42V stickied on this very forum that yielded a 750. I think you just hit a bit of bad luck with the scoring and that planning to retake immediately is a good idea. If you look on the bright side, you've managed to score 720 twice when most people would kill to get that score once!

I cannot believe that the split you got gives a 720. That is a full 3 points more than mine, So at the least you should have got a 730.

I dont know what to suggest because you already mentioned that your choice of school in the US wanted a better score from you last year. But whichever way you decide to go - retake or apply again - i wish you good luck !

BSD, you have grounds to get an audit of your score...this is the first i have seen where a 48 42 split got you 720..if anything its at least 730...

is it me or is there a grade inflation in verbal????
