Low Quant Score - 680 Top Tier B-school applicant [#permalink] New post 31 Dec 2009, 11:29
Hi All,

I'd appreciate your thoughts on my situation.

I took the GMAT for the first time in november and scored 680 (V46, Q39). AWA 5 (I didn't study this which was an error)

So I scored 98th percentile for Verbal but a dismal 52nd percentile for quant. I'm not a quant person unfortunately. I did Maths Alevel and got an A which means I'm not a complete dunce and was at a top US investment bank for 18months before moving to my current job (executive search consultant for a top 5 firm).

My undergrad degree was not quant focused either (Geography/Social Studies) but was from Oxbridge which counts for something.

I have great references, I think my essays are pretty strong and I have a lot of Uni leadership roles to back me up. I'm a 'different' candidate according to my bosses who are all MBA alumni from top schools. Also I'm a UK female applying to US schools...

I'm taking the GMAT again on Monday to see if I can improve my scores but I am not confident. My practice tests are all in the 640-680 range and I haven't cracked the 700 barrier. My quant score has improved by 2-3 marks but my verbal tends to slip as I get bored by the end.....I'm sure adreneline will help that part!

I just need your thoughts on whether I have a hope in helll of getting into my target schools (HBS, Stanford, Columbia, INSEAD) with these scores and what your recommendations would be for dealing with Monday. I am very very stressed about it!

Thanks
