Should I retake GMAT? [#permalink] New post 06 Jul 2011, 01:06

I took GMAT yesterday and scored 710. This was my second attempt. In the first attempt I had scored 690(I was working late in office and hence was not able to sleep for 48 hours before giving the tests). I had always scored 740-760 on the mock tests. I am confused whether I should take it for the third time considering I may end up improving a bit or not improving at all.

A look at my profile :

I am an Indian IT female. I have completed my Bachelors in Technology from a reputed institute in India with an average GPA of 4.3/5 ( 86 percent in terms of total marks).
I have 3+ years of work experience in the best (US) Products Developing company(if not the best then one of the best). I have cleared french DELF examinations and couple of stock markets examinations. I am actively involved in social work and work regularly for an NGO for Teaching in India. Also I work part time for AIDS and Leprosy awareness campaigns. I am the member of the creative community from our office and part of the core team for many organizational events. I am a free lancer writer and have my personal blog(which I am maintaining from past 4 years). I have won writing contests and I also write for social causes.

Apart from this I am a fitness and Yoga fanatic and deeply involved in Art of living work across India.
Professionally I have received 5-6 awards during my tenure at the company and currently lead a vendor team of 3 people.

Please evaluate my profile and let me know what more can I do and whether I should retake the test.

Thanks for the help.

AFAIK, if you plan to retake GMAT, then you must do so only if you are confident to get atleast 30-40 points more than your previous score. You can't send a wrong signal to the Adcom by laying too much emphasis on your GMAT score, considering your current score is not too bad.
P.S - lately, i have been reading a lot of articles and the source of the above info skipped to settle in one of my brain cells :)
