Hello ,

I need an honest opinion on whether I should take the GMAT again.

Details :

GMAT : 710
Quant : 49
Verbal :39
AWA : 5.5


MSU VADODARA - well reputed university
GPA : 6.1 /10

PGD in advertising and Marketing Communications from XIC Mumbai .
XIC ranks second in media communication in India .
Grade : B+

Work experience
2.5 years
1- self employed consultant
1.5 year - brand strategist at a national experimental agency
Worked on brands like HUL , SAP , SIEMENS , MONDELEZ, ORIFLAME and the likes of such.

*Not from conventional Indian background*

Indian female - media background
Age : 25

Post MBA goals : brand management / marketing - product management

If I take GMAT again , I would like to score somewhere near 750.

I realize that I lackwork experience and have decent EC ( NOT MENTIONED ) but how much of a difference would adding 40 more points make in this case ?

If I end up in the same colleges with a 750 due to lack of work ex then attempting GMAT again wont make sense.

So I need a review for the same.

710 is a very good score but why not give it a chance as the deadlines are away and you will not lose anything; if you get a lower score, you can cancel it.

Pundits will tell otherwise but a hardcore fact is that 710 and 750 are entirely different scores. Even 730 is better. Difference of 20 points may not directly give you an admit but can contribute to a better admit...and even scholarships.

Hi vaibhavijobalia,

First off, a 710/Q49 is an outstanding score, so you can comfortably apply to any Schools that interest you. As such, a retest is probably not necessary. Depending on the Schools that you plan to apply to, you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile.

First of all congratulations for entering the 700 club.710 is a great score and it's not going to make a huge difference unless you're from a common pool or you're targeting m7 . What are your target schools? I think you have a lot of room to work on the other aspects of your profile..

Hi vaibhavijobalia,

Since you are asking an admissions-based question, I agree that you may find it helpful to reach out to one of the many admissions consultants here on GMAT Club. That said, if you do decide to retake the GMAT (to push for a 750), please reach back out, and I’d be happy to help.

Good luck!
