Hi Stacy Blackman & Co.,
I've taken the GMAT twice - first time was in October and second time today. First go around I was really upset about my 640 (31Q 44V 6 AWA) as I'd been practice-testing in the 690-710 range consistently.
I refocused my efforts, realized I'd been prepping the quant in the wrong ways, and retested today at 740 (48Q, 44V AWA TBD). As you can imagine I am THRILLED with my new score. I believe that my first quant score was somewhat of an anomaly due to preparing incorrectly and getting a question set that played to my weaknesses.

Question: How, if at all, do I need to address a 100 point GMAT improvement (all in quant) on my applications?

Hi LadyRoadWarrior,

Congratulations on your great score!

On your business school application you will report your highest GMAT test score. You do not need to address your GMAT on other areas of your application.

Best,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
