I took the GMAT for the first time last week and scored a 760. 46 Verbal (99%) and 48 Quant (69%). When I took the test, the unofficial report had the Quant as 71percentile, but when I received my official report this week it had slid down to 69%. My average during my practice exams was 50.

I am applying to HBS, Sloan, and Tuck.

Do I need to retake the GMAT to get a higher score on the quant or am I okay as is?

Hi peterb ,

760 is an awesome score. Congratulations. I don't think you should be bothered about giving the exam again.

Work on other parts of the application now and make them as strong as your GMAT score.

All the best.

You have an exceptional score in verbal and a good score in quant.It is a very rare score in verbal
The colleges you wish to apply are going to be considering the whole package you offer them,not a single component of it.
As for the problem you have with your quant score you can surely show some experience, undergrad gpa or quantitative skills you would have acquired over the time
Don't take me the wrong way but it may happen that you won't be able to score the same in your next attempt.

Wow what a score! Congrats on a great job. I would say don't worry about retaking, a 760 is a tremendous score and its not worth it to retake for a few percentile points on quant. Focus on your application at this point and put together that winning applicaton!
