Hey all,

After looking around these forums and other places, I've noticed that most people have the opposite problem. I took the GMAT twice (650 and then 700) and my score improved from Q: 44 V: 37 to Q: 43 V: 42. Unfortunately, my quant dropped from a pretty bad 69% to 67%. However, I majored in Econ from a top 20 private university and took calculus, corporate finance, accounting, etc. (B or B- average in them, but worse in my major...I was never meant to be an economist) so I'm hoping that helps to alleviate some fears about my quant ability. Now, my biggest question is, do I have a shot getting into school with my quant the way it is? I'm shooting for Duke, Columbia, Yale, Ross, Darden, Vanderbilt, UNC, and UT Austin.

The only school I found so far that shows the middle 80% of broken down GMAT scores is Yale and my quant is within that 80% (to my knowledge, that's a good thing).

I reallllllly don't want to take the GMAT again. Frankly, I do not standardized test well and I'm afraid that I'll actually do worse if I decide to try again.

Academics (including your GPA, GMAT and quant ability) are just one factor of your application. There's plenty of opportunity to compensate for this using your essays, work ex, recos, extracurriculars, etc. Also, your post-MBA goals may also play a role. If you want to do something quant focused (e.g. investment banking or trading) then you may be at a slight disadvantage. For a marketing career for example it's a different story.

Short note on quants:

Thanks for the advice. I really need to focus on my story and leadership qualities, I believe.
