Hi Stacy,

I recently just took the GMAT for a second time and improved my quant score (my main goal) but I did worse on verbal and scored 10 points lower overall. I previously scored Q44 (68%) V40 (89%) 690 (88%) and this time around scored Q47 (76%) V 37 (81%) and 680 (85%). I am planning on applying to Columbia, NYU and Wharton in Round 1 with a concentration in Finance. I read recently online that when completing the application, you are only asked to report your highest score. Since I am applying to top schools with a quant heavy focus, would it be more advantageous of me to report the 680 score which is more balanced (both subsections and overall score above 75%) or to report the highest overall score which is weak in quant? I realize that eventually they will receive the official report with both scores, but I am unsure at what point in the process this will occur. My profile is as follows:

26 y/o Male
3 years Big 4 accounting firm in their M&A diligence group
Top 30 State School undergrad, Accounting and Finance Double Major, Overall GPA: 3.7 Finance GPA: 3.9
Decent extra curricular activities/volunteer work

I would be interested in speaking with you further regarding preparing applications.

Hi MBAbound12,

I recommend following the rules and reporting your highest score. Ultimately business schools do have access to the score reports and review if admitted. You do not want any weird inconsistencies to pop up where you are not submitting what they asked for. Unfortunately both of those quant numbers are below the 80% that they are looking for. However, there is not enough of a difference between the scores to warrant making a big deal out of it.

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
