Hello, looking for an evaluation and a little advice. I got a 680 on the gmat (41 V Quant 42). A little pissed about the quant score considerably lower than I had been scoring (70 to 75% range). I would rather not take it again. I am wondering about my chances at all the top ten, some of top 15 also, schools. I have 3.92 GPA at a state school, my major is business economics. I have taken a fair amount of quantitative classes and aced all of them. Here is my resume :

I'd like to apply to NYU, Cornell, and Harvard as a reach. Wondering how my chances are and what I might be able to do to improve, I will be working for JP Morgan when I graduate. Thanks so much for your help!

Hi jackw1,

Thanks for your post. Regarding your GMAT, I do want to mention that your highest school is self-reported on your business school application. This means that an admissions team will focus on your best score. If you do feel you can improve your score by 30+ points, there is no harm in taking the test again.

Improving your score by 30+ points will have an impact with top MBA programs, as they do like to see a score above a 700. If you decide to take the exam again, we provide free GMAT tips here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/gmat-files/

We also provide free 30 minute phone consultations here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/contact/

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
