I took GMAT yesterday and got
V(28) -51%
Q(48) - 86%
overall: 640 (80%)

If a school requires a GMAT score of 640, are they going to look at the breakdown and notice my low verbal score?

I did take it once before
V(38) - 85%
Q(44)-75%
overall 680 (90%)

I retook it to improve my quant score.
Thanks!

while schools see your last 3 official scores, they only take the highest score for admissions review purposes. A 680 is pretty competitive. See Kellogg - 45% of last years class scored below 700. I suggest you put down the GMAT and start building some really compelling essays. Adcoms will ignore a 680, 640 if you have outstanding essays.

Thanks very much, needless to say, right now I am just about ready to kill myself.

I am not sure if any other schools do this, but Yale actually considers the highest verbal and highest quant score from all your attempts.

I would like to apply to a school that has a strong finance program. Will my low Quant (44) in my best score (680) be an issue?

Very important to know. Try posting this question at one of the B-School forums here. You will definitely get a much informed opinion.
Good Luck!
