Hey y'all, scored a 700 (45Q (55%)/41V (93%)), does this warrant a retake?

I'm targeting GSB (Dream), Yale, McDonough, and Darden. Other aspects of my application are all very strong. I've worked to both differentiate myself as well as align myself exclusively with schools that fit my mission.

Hello deloitter

If we are talking about GSB as Stanford Graduate School of Business then their average GMAT score is 737.

More importantly, the range of Stanford MBA GMAT scores is quite wide, from 590 to 790.

The median GMAT score for Yale School of Management admitted applicants is 730.

The Yale GMAT score range for the middle 80% is 690-760.

For McDonough, Median GMAT is 700 and their GMAT Range is 640-730.

Average GMAT score for University of Virginia's Darden School is 706.

I would say, that for McDonough and Darden you are in game with your current score, but for more competitive schools like Stanford and Yale it would be advisable for you to retake and focus on improving your quant score.

That being said and keeping in mind that you mention that all your other aspects are very strong, certainly it doesn't mean that you cannot get in at GSB and Yale with your current score, data shows that many people already did it in past, as you can see from figures above.

Fact that you worked on differentiation and picked schools that are (perfect) fit for you is wise strategy and would for sure reap benefits on top of any GMAT score.

Indeed, GMAT is just one aspect of application not more important than others.

However, If I were you and had time and resources I would try another shot at GMAT and would focus on quant in my prep, since your verbal is already very strong.

Good Luck !
