Lower GMAT score after retake [#permalink] New post 12 Jul 2008, 15:01
I recently retook the GMAT thinking I could improve on a 720 and instead scored a 680. Will this hurt when it comes time to apply? Will I be a "720" applicant or a "680" applicant? Will schools look down on the fact that I retook the test and got a lower score?

i think schools consider the highest one not the recent one if the earlier is not expired.

depends on the school, they might average or take the latest one, but most likely as tiger said only use the highest one.
