I am debating on whether it is worth taking the GMAT again. I took it in 2008, when I graduated from undegrad and am afraid it will be the one thing holding me back from my desired schools.

Work:
I have 4+ years of work experience in Washington, DC working as a Senior Consultant for Deloitte Consulting. My projects have included federal program management, internal controls, risk advisory, and human capital analytics.

GMAT:
I took the GMAT in 2008 when I graduated from undegrad. I received a 650, 78 percentile. The scores will expire after this year.

School:
University of Maryland. BS in Finance. BS in Political Science (double degree).
3.7 GPA

I am targeting the below schools:
Anderson, Marshall, Kenan-Flagler, McCombs, and McDonough

I am debating whether to go ahead and apply for R1 or spend a month or 2 studying for GMAT (aim for 700) and doing R2. Please advise.

Hi airross33,

How much progress have you made on your applications? If you have already put a lot of time and effort into your essays and applications and you are ready to apply for Round 1, I do generally recommend applying earlier. I have worked with many applicants with similar GMAT scores to yours who got into the schools on your list.

However, if you feel that your applications could still be improved, then it is likely worth taking the extra couple months to improve your GMAT score and tighten up your essays so that you really have the best possible application package. If you do not feel 100% confident at this point, it is best to wait.

Good luck!

Shawn
