Hi everyone

I had appeared for GMAT in 2015 just to see where i stand on GMAT, so i answered without much of studying and I scored a terrible 570 Q48 V22.

After a long gap i started studying in may and took my second attempt on 15th Sept.and scored a mere 640 Q49 V28 IR7.
(I got nervous during my Verbal section and had to answer last 5 questions in 5 mins :( )
I answered 4 Manhattan mock tests and got the following results 690,710,700 and 700.(The tests were taken under the actual test conditions except for AWA) so was expecting a similar score.

I am looking to apply for the following schools
1. Indiana University (Kelley)
2. Arizona State University (Carey)
3. University of Minnesota (Carlson)
4. Michigan State University (Broad)
5. Texas A&M(Mays)
6. University of Texas - Dallas

My profile details are as follows
W.E. - 72 months (Software Developer-managed a team of two and have some client appreciations)
B.E. (I.T.) - 75%
H.S.S.C. - 75%

I wanted to know whether I should retake(which I will and apply for Round II) or I should apply to some of the above mentioned universities.(do I even have a chance to get selected in any of the above if I apply for Round I ??)

waiting for some really helpful replies from experts

Hi 0akshay0,

First off, a 640/Q49 is a strong score (it's just a bit shy of the 80th percentile overall), so it could be enough to get you into your first-choice School. As such, a retest might not be necessary. You're ultimately asking Admissions questions though, so you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile. There's a Forum full of them here:

http://gmatclub.com/forum/ask-admission ... tants-124/

If you do choose to retest though, then we have to examine how you were studying for the Verbal section before. Once you've decided on whether to retest or not, you should post back here (or you can PM me directly) and we can talk through your study options going forward.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
