Thank you for using the timer!

There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
i have heard that schools prefer candidates who cross the "80/80 threshold" on the GMAT, meaning that they score above the 80th% in both quant and verbal. i am a little worried about this because it seems like the quant score is skewed upward by foreign national engineering types (nothing against them but they are generally very good at quant!). i have heard quite a lot about the legions of indian engineers who score 51Q and ~35V (or something similar).
my undergrad is in humanities and i am not sure if i will be able to cross 80th% in quant since it is a skewed number (though i do expect a perfect or near-perfect verbal score). i also have very little quant exposure on my transcript. that being said, i have passed level one and two of the CFA program, which is fairly quantitative (finance, accounting, stats) and is basically represenative of the kind of work i would be doing in B-school. i am curious to know how you think i may be perceived by the adcom if i do fall below the 80th% in quant (assume everything else is strong - strong UG, VERY good ECs, 4 major leadership awards, good work ex, etc.).
