Thanks for your post. In regards to your question, we typically do not recommend that applicants apply in the final round. For your GMAT, it's important to remember that your highest score is self-reported on your application, so admissions teams will focus on your best score. There is no harm in taking the test again, which is why we recommend candidates take the test again if they believe they can improve their score by 30+ points.
I hope the above is of help. If you would like, we also provide free 30 minute phone consultations here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/contact/
