Hello,

I am a recent graduate of Duke University looking to apply to business school in two to three years after working healthcare.

I took the GMAT yesterday and was mildly disappointed to receive a score of
690 (45 Math, 75 percent / 39 Verbal, 87 percent).

My practice test scores were: ManhattanGMAT - 700, 700, 660, 710 /
Kaplan - 720 / GMAT Prep - 710, 710

I am mildly disappointed in my score as I am looking to attend
top-tier business schools such as Tuck, Booth, Harvard, Columbia, and
Duke.

Basically, I am looking to find out whether it would be advisable to
take the GMAT again next month.

My other statistics include an undergraduate GPA of 3.558 (Economics
and Psychology double major) and I was involved with a student-run
company during school.

Thanks in advance,

Matt

Based on what you have above, it looks like you can break the 700 mark.

What happened during your test? Did you run out of time? Rush through questions at the end? Not answer any?

The test felt just like my practice tests for the most part. I completed the math section on time, which was my biggest concern. The only thing is that two of the passages sort of tripped me up, but I still ended up finishing the section.

It looks like I just got a couple of questions wrong that I normally got right in my practice tests.

Thoughts?
