Hi christi,

GMAC has publicly stated that the Official Score that you earn on Test Day is within +/- 30 points of actual ability. Assuming a similar 'swing' in how your CATs function, your 3 CAT score results show that you essentially performed the same each time (about 610 +/- a few points). There's a big difference between raising that score to a 650+ and raising it to a 700+, so it would help if you could be a bit more specific about your score goal. For 650+, you could conceivably retest in a month (or less); but for a 700+, you will likely need at least another 2 months of consistent, guided study.

Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied for this recent attempt?
2) What study materials have you used?

Goals:
3) What is your exact goal score?
4) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
5) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
6) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

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

Hi christi,

If you took the GMAT in early November, then you would have approximately 6-7 weeks of study time. While you could potentially improve a great deal during that time, you might be 'cutting your studies a bit close' (as I suspect you would need at least 2 months to hit 700+). Given your Official Score, your practice CAT Scores and your timeline, I think that you would find the EMPOWERgmat Total Score Booster to be quite helpful. Most of our clients complete that Study Plan in well under 2 months, so you could potentially complete it in the time that you've defined. We have a variety of free resources on our site (www.empowergmat.com), so you can 'test out' the Course before setting up an Account.

If you have any additional questions, then you can feel free to contact me directly.

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

I got a reply to my Kellogg eligibility form submission within 24 hrs. Since it's way past the stated timeline in your case, it is best to write to them.
