It's quite simple.

If you're confident you can boost the quant score without much effort, then you can retake the GMAT *and* still make it in time for R1 -- you'll have time to work on the essays as well as GMAT prep if again the 72% quant was simply a "bad hair day" for you. In the end, it's not going to make a huge difference, but it can help.

In all, you're targeting the right range of schools, so it's just a matter of deciding whether you are willing to retake the GMAT or not for noticeable (but not essential) benefit.

Good morning Alex,

Your reply is much appreciated. One last question, of the schools I mentioned, are any of them "must applys" in round 1 for the better chance given my profile? I've elected to take the GMAT again and want to game-plan the next few months.

Also, I saw on your website that you offer customized services at $250/hour, would that apply, for example, if I just need some essays reviewed? What is your estimated turnaround as well?

Thanks again!

Columbia is the only one where you should get it in by their Early Decision round (their equivalent of R1).

If you're asking about my services, just email me directly.
