Very bad GMAT splits M50 V32, explain in optional essay? [#permalink] New post 03 Dec 2011, 10:32
Hi All,

sorry have to bring up this miserable memory again.
I had very bad GMAT split: 680 with M50 V32. I got this in my first attempt. And I retook G twice after and scored roughly same score, yet V was even lower (very disappointed given I did so well in my practices)

Question is: do I need to say something in optional essay for my weak Verbal? (like English is a language not a test, my 8-year exp didnt come cheap and my english is very competent, something like this?)

I am a chinese national with 8 years experiences in English-speaking envt across asia-pacific (both studying since high school and working). I speak very decent English and possess great communication and presentation skills.
Just this test, I cannot conquer, SAD!!

I am applying LBS, finalizing my essays now.

Thanks all

How is your TOEFL? can you balance the low V with a good TOEFL score? it may help.

Hey,
If you have a convincing explanation, it wouldn't hurt to explain it in the optional, that's what it's for. By the way, I think there’s a lot to do even if the GMAT is not 750…. Did you see this?
