I just finished retaking the GMAT. Overall my score improved from 500 to 570. Standardized tests have always been my downfall, so I don't think retaking the GMAT will help too much. I'm trying to get into the USC MBA.PM program for the class of 2017. The average GMAT score is 600...
I have about 5 years full time work experience, though did have previous part time jobs.
I graduated with a Business Economics B.A. and minor in management from UCI. my GPA was 3.3 USC average last year was 3.1.
I'm thinking if it is worthwhile to retake the GMAT or focus on my application essay and resume. The deadline is 6/1/14
