Hi, sorry this is a repost from the Peer Review forum, but I wanted to seek some professional insight.
Here is the deal with my GMAT:
Test 1: 720 (94th %tile) -- Q44 (68th %tile) / V45 (98th %tile) / AWA 6.0
Test 2: 710 (92nd %tile) -- Q47 (77th %tile) / V40 (89th %tile) / AWA 6.0
Unfortunately for round 2 with the GMAT mistress, I was too focused on getting every verbal answer perfect since I knew a high verbal was my ticket to a super high score. Alas, I totally forgot to keep track of the time and ended up rushing through 20q's in 24 mins... yeah, rookie mistake. Oh well.
So now which score should I submit on my applications? (I did elect to automatically send my scores when I took the GMAT but I am asking about the online application where they ask for details)
The schools to which I am applying if that makes a difference: MIT, Yale, CBS, and maybe NYU.
Work background is in finance (perhaps giving credence to my profile if I use the 720 low quant score). Thanks in advance for the help!!! Perhaps the difference is trivial, but I certainly would appreciate your professional thoughts!
If you have a choice, I would recommend you provide Test 2. The Q percentile is very close to 80 and you have other evidence of quant skill. Your verbal is a nice 89%. If the see both scores, it's not so terrible. I think Tuck and INSEAD will take the highest quant and the highest verbal even if earned on different test dates.
