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!

You have a lot of strong attributes to your candidacy and the lower than expected quant score is not your application in totality. If you have time, I would try to re-take the exam as it is below the levels that admissions generally looks for. However, you do have enough "quant" in your background that admissions will not be concerned that you will not be able to handle this aspect of the program. In your application, this has to be addressed and you have to make sure that you point out how this score is not indicative of your abilities or potential.

Regardless, I still think you (with a strong application -- essays, recommendation, resume, interview, etc.) would still be a strong candidate at Johnson and Stern. HBS is going to be a long shot, as you know.

Thank you for your reply, I most likely have time to try and give the GMAT one more try but am trying to feel around and see if people think it is necessary. Obviously its a large time commitment but ultimately I'd do whatever I needed to do to gain admissions at the best schools. Thanks again
