Hey there! This is my first post ever on GMAT Club so hopefully it isn't an awkward post haha :dazed

I recently sat my GMAT and my score was 660 (Q42 V38), I was very disappointed since I was expecting to do better in the quant section (I'm a fourth-year mathematics student at university). The verbal score was a nice surprise, give I'm not a native and was scoring lower in the GMAT CATs...

I am applying to several universities/business schools to do a MSc in Finance and Bocconi is one of my top choices. There's no information regarding GMAT requirements, the only thing I could find was that "a score of 650 would add weight to my application and a score of 700 would add extra weight".

Do you think I should resit the GMAT and improve my quant or should I just use my 660 to apply to Bocconi?

I'm worried that scoring lowly in the quant section of the GMAT as a maths student will be seen as a negative sign...

Thank you so much for your help!

I’d retake it. GMAT is going to be a big influence and the score determines financial aid as well. My buddy graduated from there last year and had a 720-730 and got a lot of scholarship help.

I would suggest you retake GMAT to improve Quants score as well as scholarship opportunities. Your present score is good in overall, but you may face a lot of questions on low Quants with the admission team.
