I am just back from the Pearson Center.
Obviously I am wondering if I should retake, being so close to the 700's.
My overall score is in line ith my last CATs, but repartition was somehow different.
I got a 41 in Q, which is quite low as I was scoring consistenly 43-46 both on GMAT prep and MGMAT.
However, I also got 41 in verbal (not bad for a non native), which is 4 points more than my highest score ( really happy I bought the GMAT pill
on SC 3 days ago).
Right now I am exhausted, and don't really want to see a GMAT book for a while, but I am really wondering if a 700+ would make a real difference.
I am confident I can score higher on quant, but not so sure I can score the same on verbal!!
I plan to apply next year in R1 to Columbia, LBS, STern and Insead.
Thanks for your inside!
Someone can speak tot his better, I would see if the schools you're applying to take the highest GMAT or the average.
In any case, if you're doing R1 next year, sounds like you have plenty of time for a retake. I know it sucks to study, but I surely wish I were in your shoes and had the time to take the GMAT again. I say take a month or so off and hit the books again.
