What is the value of balanced GMAT scores? [#permalink] New post 18 Jul 2006, 08:30
Hi Guys,

I wonder does the score breakdowns matter that much?
Got 670 - Q50(95), v31(61). AWA 3.5
I know, my Verbal and AWA are horrible, but overall score is not that bad.

How would the adcom typically consider such unbalanced score?
Please note, I'm going to apply to top20-30 US business schols.

i'm almost sure that I can reach 34-35 on Verbal which gives me additional 20 points at most, but will it make much difference?

regards,
Intern

awa score seems low if adcom likes to read (and most of them do!), you're in trouble...

I don't see much point in retaking the exam in this case- your time would be better spent on making sure that the essays are strong.
