Will my retake (700 to 710) hurt me [#permalink] New post 10 Jan 2007, 20:02
I gave another try after 700 in October (Q49, V 36, AWA 6). I increased the Q to 51, that was great, but my verbal fell to 33 even though I was more confident of my answers this time than before. The four passages all made sense to me, I mean I understood them well and hopefully answered the questions correctly.

Anyway I will just take what I got.

Do many schools take best of Q and V of multiple tests then I would have 51 Q and 36 V (I know Yale does and I am not applying to Tuck)

Many Quant focused schools may value Quant more also so retake was not a complete disaster or was it? The whole point of retaking the test was to improve the verbal score, I thought I was doing great in practice questions ( I started doing 1000 RC, SC, CR questions) but then on actual test I fell short..

Any opinions?

I'd say it will have virtually no effect. You'll have to decide which score you want the schools to consider.

I don't know about Yale but I know that Tuck let's you use sections scores from different exams.

I am pretty sure that Yale and Tuck look at the best disaggregated scores. Based on the non-scientific but logical essay advice piece posted by Rhyme and written by someone who either served on a top ten adCom (or is at least initmately familiar with the process), taking it more than twice starts to hurt the credibility of your best score.

That being said, I took it twice and my best quant was 46 and my best verbal 45. For shits and giggles, what is my modified "total"? 720? 730?

Has anyone gotten a 46Q45V?

Correct, Yale and Tuck are willing to evaluate applicants based on their highest individual subsector scores; however, they will not recalculate total score based on the highest subsectors.

Also, I believe the general consensus is that ad comms begin to have concerns if applicants take the GMAT more than three times. If you take it three times or less, IMO you are fine.

Well done! If you keep trying after a 700 and a 710 they will be concerned about your judgement. Just leave it alone!

Hope it helps. L.

Someone asked about a way to calculate the total score of V & Q scores from separate exams. Somewhere in here Hjort has a little formula that works. Don't know where it is, but it worked for me.
