Hello,

I just took the GMAT and scored a 700 (44Q 41V) and I don't know if I should retake it. I want to go to a top 5 school.

Undergrad: Notre Dame (Double Major: Finance and History) 3.52 GPA
GMAT: 700 (44Q 41V)
Work Experience: Doing Investment Banking at Citi. Don't know how long until doing MBA but at least 2-3 years in the program.
Other Activities: Planning on taking CFA Level 1, have led a small fund with high school friends and we have achieved competitive results, skiing, a lot of traveling. I have also had internships along the years 3 in a Panamanian commercial bank, 1 in a real estate development fund in Panama, 1 in a private wealth management firm in Miami.

I am from Panama and speak 4 languages, I spent two summers in Switzerland and one in Italy before going to college.

Please let me know your outlook on this. Thank you for your help.

Do you think you can raise your quant score?

If you don't think so, just leave it. If you think you can raise it, the situation becomes a little bit messier. You're on the cusp. You have lot of evidence you can handle the math. You also have some real distinctive aspects to your profile that could make the schools want to overlook that quant score, especially given your work and undergrad grades. At the same time , the best way to handle a low quant score it to replace it with a higher one. The safest route is to raise your score. Is it necessary for you to do so? I'm not sure. Could a higher quant score make the difference between acceptance and rejection, maybe. Will it definitely make that difference, no.

If you would like help with your MBA applications, please let me know.

Best,
Linda
