Does anyone else have a split that they wish they could combine into one score, and what did you do about it? I got a 44Q 41V on the first take (and knew my Q was fluke low because I flew through it) and a 50Q 38V on the second. If I'm low on the WE scale for Darden (I'll still be 25 at matriculation for 2012 with 3 years), would anyone advise I take in one more time in mid to late January and try to get a 750-760 before interviews? I was consistently in the 41-43 range on the V on my practice tests leading up to the test.

I've heard- from my MGMAT teacher- Tuck gives consideration to your best Q and best V, but I am not getting an app together for Tuck until next fall if I get dinged from Darden this year.

Yeah, it's a 720. Great feedback! Thanks a lot. I was not thinking about anything but the rest of my application between now and Jan. 12, but I probably will not bother to retake regardless of outcome.

720 is a great score.
I have to say - anyone who leaves a test center (myself included) always feels they could have gotten a higher score. I got 750 and I felt that next time I would definitely get a 770, and so on and on but the time comes to stop chasing numbers and focus on the essays & application. At 720, it is a much more important and demanding component.
