to retest or not to retest [#permalink] New post 20 May 2010, 04:09
I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who can sympathize with me. I prepped pretty solidly for about 5 months and peaked yesterday with a 730 unofficial score report (q47, v45). Last weekend I took two GMATPreps and got a 720 and 760 respectively. Starting out in my preparation back in January I took a diagnostic GMATPrep and scored a 640. I'm applying to top 10 schools so my initial goal was to break 700. My final GMATPrep Q score was 50. So I think I missed the mark by quite a bit on the quant side of the house. I beat my initial goal with a low performance given my current capability. I usually hit between 60-80% on the challenges (untimed). What to do? I'm driving myself a little crazy here. I'm especially concerned about the rumors that employers like to screen for high quant scores. Any advice besides "stop whining" would be greatly appreciated!

I think you should stop whining ( :-D just joking) and start working on your essays and general applications. A 730 score is pretty good, I myself scored 680 a few days ago even though my optimum aim was 700. And I only studied for about 2 months for that score. No GMAT score (even 800) can guarantee you a place at a school and I think yours is just great - if the rest of your details are good you'll almost certainly get into your dream school.

Oh, and congrats on your score!
