Hi PlanetEarth,

Thanks for posting. One thing I did want to you write you that many applicants do not know, is that your highest GMAT score is self-reported on your application, which is why admissions teams will focus on your best score. If you do not score as well as you would like on your first try, there is not a lot of downside to taking the test again.

If you'd like, we provide free GMAT advice here: also provide 2 free official GMAT practice exams.
