Someone Please Help!!! 650 to 650 [#permalink] New post 05 Nov 2011, 14:14
I just got back from taking the actual GMAT for the second time and scored the same score as my first time (650 Q43 V36) I took the GMAT back in September for the first time and scored a 650 (47Q 32v).

I enrolled in the Kaplan in course this past summer and after taking the test for the first time I wanted a different approach. I picked up the MGMAT books and started studying again.

MGMAT CAT 1: 650 (Q43 V 36)
MGMAT CAT 2: 720 (Q47 V 41)
MGMAT CAT 3: 680 (Q46 V 36)
MGMAT CAT 4: 720 (Q47 V 41)
GMAT PREP 2 : 650 (I forget the breakdown)

I don't know what to do!! I am targeting schools like Georgetown, Emory and Boston U. My undergrad GPA wasn't great and feel that I need to break 700 on the GMAT. I am going to register for the test one more time for early December.

Any suggestions on what to study are greatly appreciated. I've already completed a bunch of the OG 12 with almost all the math complete. (although most of it was done back in August). Thanks.

Well... what did you do between September and now?
If you have not covered the OG verbal, did you study the MGMAT verbal books? They rely on the OG pretty heavily...

Bought MGMAT Reading Comp and Sentence correction and foundations of GMAT verbal. Focused on SC...not as much RC. Took MGMAT CATS. I didn't focus as much on math but tried to maintain by doing Kaplan practice questions and MGMAT CATS. (CR has been a strong point for me)

Would you advise purchasing GMAT OG to Verbal and Math and focusing there along with continuing the MGMAT SC and RC? I need a solid study plan for the next month...

Hi,
I would say that if you are in 80% range of admitted students you should not worry much. Moreover as I see your combined score is about 690 (see my table of transformation of raw scores to overal GMAT score).
Check with schools, you are applyingg to. Some of them like Tuck are looking at combined raw scores so your combined score would be 690 (Q47;V36).
You sould consider retakin the test only if you are sure that you will score higher.

hope it helps.
