Hi,

Title says it all pretty much. I go to a top 5 liberal arts school, majoring in Computer Science and Economics.
Just took the GMAT with < 1 week of prep (HBS deadline is April 10)
Got 42 Verbal, 8 IR, then 47 Quant which puts me in 63rd percentile of quant.
I really messed up during the quant section, spent too long on one question and had 2 minutes left for the last 5 questions.
Really disappointed in my performance, and am thinking that if I had prepped more or done a practice exam I could've done better.
I know HBS 2+2 is highly competitive, so should I cancel my scores and re-take?
I can't re-take if I don't cancel my scores, because I have less than a month before the deadline.
Any input would be super helpful!!

Thanks.

This may depend a bit on what demographic you are coming from but I am inclined to tell you to keep the score and just try to focus on the rest of your application. The rest of your profile seems fairly strong from the limited info provided. The only thing for you to really evaluate if you are really confident that you can do better, if you do with the limited time available that is something worth considering but I think a 730 is probably a strong enough score as is

Hi there,

I would say to go for it. Schools typically like to see a raw score of 48+ on the quant and you are just shy of that. A high GPA from a top 5 liberal arts school, with a major in Computer Science and Economics, will give the school comfort that you can handle quantitative concepts, and therefore, the rigor of the curriculum.

I hope that helps!

Best,
Shaifali
