Low GMAT score [#permalink] New post 01 Dec 2007, 09:43
I finish my GMAT yesterday afternoon and scored a 460. This is after months of studying. I have never been very strong in math, ususally scoring in the 28 to 30 range, but my verbal has always been in the 35 to 36 range. Yesterday i scored a 29Q 28V. I freaked out after I couldn't answer the first few math questions correctly, and I knew i didn't do well in that portion, but I was amazed at how low my verbal score was. I thought I did really well. I am interested in two schools, Sacramento State University and UC Davis. I did not meet the minimum requirement for Sac State (GMAT 500) for automatic acceptance. Should I schedule to take the test in another 30 + days, and continue to study, or try and go through a special acceptance process which involves getting approval from the dean? I work 40+ hours a week, and in the next 2 months, I will travel 60% of the time, which does not allow for much studying.

IMHO, you must write again. You may want to identify which area of Quant you find difficulty in and do a lot of practise on those. 500+ should definitely be attainable. I believe that would be a far-more straight-forward path to acceptance.

Did you taka a GMATPrep test before the actual one ? What kind of scores were you getting on those ? In my case, they were pretty close to my final score.

I think you should take it again. Do as much studying as you possibly can and spend alot of time on the forums asking questions. You can break 500 in 31 days!

Thanks for the encouragement. I took the evening after the test to relax. I was feeling pretty bad about my score. The next day, I told myself that I simply did not prepare the right way. After reading a number of other's test prepping strategies, I went and picked up some additional reading material. I have signed up next month for another test. This time I will be prepared and confident that I can meet my goal.
