Hello all, I am taking the GMAT soon and I am trying to figure out what my cancellation score should be based upon my target schools and other factors.

Professional Goals: Pursue a JD/MBA with a focus in marketing and communication law. After a few years in private practice I'd like to ultimately find my way over to BigFed as an attorney for the FTC, FCC or a similar regulatory agency.

UGPA 3.74/4 (Tier 2 Public, usually ranked around 90-110)

Majors: Philosophy, Mathematics

GRAD: MA in Religion (Ivy, GPA not calculated)

GMAT: The question at hand, my range has been erratic (640-710) but I don't believe further study would be beneficial.

Work Experience: One year teaching high school, six years enlisted military (3 years in Special Operations, creating political, cultural, and communications products for foreign audiences)

Other relevant factors: intermediate working proficiency in Farsi (Iran) and Dari (Afghanistan)


Target Schools: Cornell, UNC Chapel Hill, Duke, Boston University, Boston College


Thanks in advance!

Hi there - I wouldn't worry too much about canceling scores. Even if you score lower vs. your target or previous attempts, schools see it as a sign of persistence. Generally speaking, keep any scores that are within about 100 points of your target. For more tips on this subject: https://www.mbamission.com/blog/2017/08 ... at-scores/

Hope that helps! :)

Thank you! I am happy to report that it was not a difficult decision. I got a 690 (Q:44 V:40 IR:8 AWA:?). In light of this do my targets seem reasonable?
