Nationality: American
Age: 26
Undergrad: George Washington University with a year abroad at London School of Economics,
double major in Computational Mathematics and Economics
3.88 GPA, summa cum laude
I was a National Science Foundation JUMP scholar for mathematics. I focused a lot of my studies on mathematical game theory and how it applies to strategic management scenarios.
I was also a culture writer for the university newspaper.

Professional Experience after Undergrad: 3 years of strategy consulting in the healthcare sector at Strategy&, part of the PwC network

GMAT: Quant:48, Verbal: 41, total: 730, IR: 3 (I know this is unfortunate), AWA: 6

I'm hoping the rest of my profile will compensate for that IR score if I apply to some top 10 schools like Harvard, Wharton, Columbia, and NYU Stern. I would love to hear what you think. Thanks.

To be honest i don't think you should retake . A 730 is a very strong score. Even i have a 720 but with a 5 in ir and 4.5 in awa. I think your strong verbal and math score which is pretty well balanced is enough to prove to the admission panel that you will succeed academically in their mba program.

Hey mrksbe,

Congrats on the great score. How long did you study for? I took the ManhattanPrep Course in person and they stressed that you should aim for a score above a 4.5, which is the mean. I'm not sure if a 3 would be considered a red flag by the admissions committees, but just food for thought. Hope this helps.
