Hi,

I've taken the GMAT three times. Cancelled the first (630) and retaken it twice:

660 (37Q, 40V)
660 (45Q, 35V)

I have consistently been score 40+ on Verbal but the most recent test had a very hard verbal section where many were talking about it after the exam.

Will schools pull the top Quant and Verbal score? Combined they would represent ~700 or should I retake the exam when I have been consistently scoring 40-45Q, 40+V?

Note that I am applying to McCombs, Ross, Duke, and Kellogg as my top choices.

Thanks!

They will not consider quant and verbal from separate attempts. They will consider both from a single attempt. And you have the freedom to choose which one you want them to consider.

Yeah, you'll have to retake.

When was your last exam? What was hard about verbal part: SC, RC, CR, or all of them?

I don't think there're any schools that accept Q and V results from different attempts, so yeah, you'll have to retake.
Hope you can do your best
