Hi guys,

I recently gave my GMAT and the scores were:
TOTAL - 720
VERBAL - 41 (94th %ile)
QUANT - 48 (69th %ile)
IR - 8

I am targetting for top 10 B Scools. My consultant is of a view that I cannot get an admit in the target schools because of low percentile in Quant section. He is suggesting for a retake. But I am afraid that what if my scores go even worse on the retake. Also, I am a little hesitant to prepare again.

Guys need your advice on whether I should retake my GMAT or not?
Please guide me.

Hey Jaybafna ,

Welcome to GMATClub. :)

Well, I sort of agree with your consultant. Top 10 schools will surely put emphasis on Quant score unless you have a very steller profile.

I would prefer taking a retake and then you can always cancel your score if there is no improvement.

Or if you can prove them with a very strong "silver lining" on why your quant score is less while how you are THE BEST for their academics, I believe you will be good to go.

All the best :)

Hi
In my opinion, you already have a very good score and there is no need to retake the Gmat.
Moreover, you also have an 8 on the IR which also proves that you are good in Quant.
I would suggest to start working on applications.

Hi guys,
If you plan to apply this year in R2 you may have to go with this score- while not ideal I think the overall score is strong enough to get you in the door- and then a strong application is also needed and this takes time also. The high IR helps too-
so I suggest that if you are going to give it a go in R2 you better make sure you devote time now to the applications as well as these need to be strong to get accepted.
