Sending GMAT scores before retake [#permalink] New post 21 May 2010, 09:06
Hi all,

I am seeking advice regarding a potential GMAT retake. I have taken the GMAT twice; the first time, I was very nervous and scored a 660 (41V39Q). On my second attempt, I scored a 730 (45V45Q). Although I am happy with my overall score, I was disappointed with my quant subscore (45, 74th %ile). I just recently took a Manhattan GMAT CAT and scored a 750; although I realize that retaking the test for a small overall score increase is a bad idea, I scored 48 this time on the quant section. On my other practice tests (all 5 Kaplan CATS and 2 GMATPrep CATS), I generally scored in the upper 40s (47-50) on the quant. Given that my quant background is a slight potential weakness, I am considering taking the test again (this would be the third and final time). I am hoping to score above the 80th %ile on the quant section.

My question is this: in order to mitigate the risk of scoring lower than my second attempt (730, 45V45Q), is there any downside to sending my current scores to programs before I retake again? Is there any way that adcoms could see my third score (if it was not good and I did not send it)? Would there be any other negative effects?

It will not matter. The schools will see all of your scores for the last five (5) years on your score report.

Also please note: Not reporting a score to school could potentially be grounds for withdrawing your acceptance.
