I just took the GMAT today and got a REALLY lopsided score. I have always been better at verbal than math, but this was probably the most extreme score I've received (verbal high, math low).

Here's the breakdown:

Math: 57%
Verbal: 99%

Total Score: 720

I'll be honest. This is a much better overall score than I had hoped for, but I am not kidding myself that it's not all verbally based. It seems inconceivable to retake the GMAT with an overall score that I love, but I know that a lot of schools are more interested in the math ( I think I timed out 1-2 questions from the end of the math section... a big NO-NO).

Can someone advise whether I should retake this?

(I just took a UCLA Math Class and got an A, so that may make up for this messy math score). Also, the only top 10 school I will applying to is Berkeley.

Thank you- I don't want to whine about a good score- I'm just afraid that it will be INTERPRETED as a much lower overal score once schools look at the breakdown.

Congrats on a solid score. It's funny somewhere along the way a lot of people got hung up on getting an 80/80 percentage split. While it's nice and all, it's not a requirement.

The key is for you to be able to show your quant skills outside of your GMAT.

Ideally you can do this through your career, your transcript and through the extra class (like the math course you took).

I wouldn't sweat the split too much if you can make up for it in other areas.
