I actually scored on the lower end of my practice CATs, but certainly not low enough to think about retaking the thing!

Oh no, you too blew the Quant
What happened?

Anyway, congrats on a great overall score!

I would've liked a 51 but I'd hardly consider a Q50 "blowing the quant".

I just couldn't get my brain geared up for the math section at first. I stumbled on some uber-simple math in the first ten problems which forced me to guess on one of the last 4 problems for fear of running out of time. All my practice tests put me at 51 or 1-2 questions off of a 51 so I'm sure that was the case here.

No point in second guessing anything though. I'm more than happy with the results. I keep in mind that I spend three months studying for this test so I could get into a top graduate program. I don't consider this test an extension of myself or a badge of my true abilities to be worn around. I did well enough to meet, and exceed, my goal so thinking about what could've been or retaking to ace the test has no allure for me.

I think you are exactly right. This is a test people and a Q50 is definitely an achievement. So where from here (apart from the islands and pinacolada)

I was just joking
Q50 is a pretty good and 770 overall is kickass. I'd take it anytime. Congrats once again!

That made me wonder, what is the highest score someone has gotten and still retaken the test? I've only heard of 740 so far (ncprasad).

Wow - congratulations.

I'm sure GMATClubbers alone have been responsible for pushing up GMAT average scores by 4-5 points over the past 2 years.

12 hour plan: make up for lost partying time! Group of people coming over for a big dinner and then drinks! Picked up a couple six packs of mix n' match beer (good stuff of course). A handle (1.75L) of Belvedere a 750ml of Hendrick's gin and then whatever everyone else is bringing.

48 hour plan: fun in the sun with 9 other business students in Trinidad & Tobago for an International Marketing trip. Sounds like school but our professor is from Trinidad & Tobago and has devoted herself to showing everyone that she can "out-party" us college kids, even in her 40s with two kids.

but seriously, I'm planning on working for 2-3 years in the DC area before applying to schools. Probably class of '12 or '13. My top choice schools are Harvard, Wharton and Wisconsin. After that I'll work for another 3-4 years somewhere I find interesting and then probably come back to the family business and start learning the ropes of upper management so my father can feel good about retiring
