I'm not sure if this is in the right section.
Just came out of my second GMAT, still think I can do better.First GMAT:
540, Q36, V28. AWA 5, IR 3.Second GMAT:
, V37, AWA?, IR 4.
Must say that I hate IR. Few practice resources available, and the time constraints makes no sense.
Here's my story:
- First exam I solely studied from MGMAT. Bought the whole set, went through it as well as OG13 in more than 3 months.
I only took one GMAT prep test before that and scored 570.
- Second exam, I decided to go through MGMAT quickly for Quant. Took one GMAT Prep test, and one MGMAT.
For verbal, I started eGMAT
one week before the exam for SC. YES. I improved 9 points solely using eGMAT
which is crazy.
Even I didn't believe them before. SC isn't confusing at all nowadays. CR from PS Bible, RC reading Economist
I didn't have a time to test for the second time after studying Verbal, so I was pleasantly surprised to see V37 which is 82%.
What's really pissing me off, is that I keep scoring 40Q in my MGMAT and GMAT prep, but my highest on the real thing is 36Q.
If I score 640, 40Q, 37Q I'd be extremely happy. My background is quite unique (Middle East, entrepreneur) and I don't need to score 700+ for a good school.
My question for you guys is, does it make sense to apply to round 2 with my low Quant? Or should I retake it and score 640 and apply in round 3? I know that seats are very limited in round 3 and they only pick 20% from round 3, but I really think it'll boost my chances.
