Just received a 620 (45Q, 31V)...retake? [#permalink]
26 Nov 2006, 18:16
Although I'd like to get into a Top 10 school, this is not my main goal. My score is just below average at several of the schools that I'm applying to and at the low end of the range for my top school (610-710, avg 670).
Would it be a good idea to retake the GMAT one last time to try to improve my score before submitting my applications?
I hold a biology degree and I'm looking to move into the biotech industry. I thought this might be an advantage.
My GPA was approx 3.3, compared to a school average of 3.38. But, I think a challenging undergrad degree in biology is to my advantage. I will have over six years of diverse work experience in two different industries upon entering.
If I retake, it will be around the end of December. My key area of study will be the verbal, but I won't be able to commit alot of time, as I'm currently working on my essays.
I do think at least a 20-30 point boost could help my chances and it can't hurt to retake.
I was very tired on the day of the test as well...I studied the night before. This really hurt my concentration during the verbal. In my opinion, being completed rested could really help my verbal score.
