Hello Friends!

I appeared for my GMAT yesterday and scored 680. M-49 and V-32.

I prepared for GMAT for the last 3-4 months. I came across this site around a month ago. This site really helped me a lot to increase my score in verbal section. Like most of the guys here, I am decently good in maths but had to put in a lot of extra efforts in verbal section.

I want to get into the top notch b-schools either in US or in Europe . I have around five and a half years of experience in software. I know that 680 is not bad. But is it good enough to get me in into a good b-school. Just wanted to know your opinion on this. I feel with another 2-3 months of preparation I can improve my verbal score to around 36-37 which I feel will fetch me a score of around 720 (maths remaining constant , which I feel it would :) ).

I would really appreciate some comments on this.
Thanks in advance.

Dips, I would say this is a good score, you should have no problem with this score in the EU MBA markets.

Hi dips, 680 is a good score and certainly competitive anywhere so its not really a major issue. The only problem you may have is at schools that want above an 80/80 percentile, not sure what 32V is but i'm guessing its below 80th percentile. If you think you can improve your score upwards of 30 points a retake may be worthwile, if not concentrate on other parts of your application.

Are you a native English speaker? If so I certainly think high 30's to low 40's V shouldn't be too difficult.

Just to let you know, you'd have to hit 50/37 to get to 720.

Personally, if you have nothing better to do, go for the increase!!! Hell, shoot for the moon and try to get a 750!!!

Thanks for all the support and the advice.
Pondering over your advice and taking other things into consideration
I've come to conclusion that I'll apply for some schools (from EU) for which my score is good enough while I'll be having another shot at GMAT.
As kidderek put it this time my target should be 750.
Would need your support and inspiration from time to time. And you'll see me more active this time in GMATCLUB.
