I'm applying to USC 3rd round.
I've already applied to several programs 2nd round (Georgetown, BU, UCI, SMU). I waited for 3rd round for USC because it is my top choice and I wanted the chance to improve my GMAT score.
I've retaken the GMAT and scored 640. I realize that it is in USC's range but just barely. The question is-- do I retake the test again or not? The reason I am hesitant is I wonder if I did worse AND the schools I already applied to saw it, could it hurt my chances of getting in to them?
Thanks in advance!

defining qualities: my goals are completely in line with what USC offers, I feel I would fit in with the students very well, I'm from Europe but have a US citizenship, I'm enthusiastic about USC above all else and that will come across in my essays, and I'm creatively focused and offer a more colorful perspective than most applicants.
