Hjort,

Since I started preparation for GMAT, I have given GMAT two times. In first attempt I scored 540 then in next improved to 680. Now I am going for another attempt and aiming for 710.

Then I came to know from the admission counselor of world's most renowned GMAT training Institute that if you score 700+ in 3 to 4 attempts then there is no use of this. Although any such thing is not written on any of the FAQs of any of the top B schools.

Please let know whether this is true or not?

Thanks in Advance,
Djhamb

I kind of wonder about this as well. After a certain point aren't you simply showing that you can "study for the test" as opposed to showcasing thinking process/analytic skills. Presumably B-schools wouldn't be thrilled to get students who can learn how to do well on a test by rote memorization?

Of course - I don't know how many attempts it takes to cross this line. Curious about your response Hjort!
