does anyone know what the policy is about taking the gmat twice and having two scores? i have heard ALL schools take the higher score but is that DEFINITELY TRUE or is it a rumor? (do they average them, do they take the more recent) does anyone know of a place on the web where this is stated? i'm afraid of taking it and doing much worse and ruining my first score.

the reason why i am asking is because i took the test july 14th and did ok, but think i got a weird draw. i have always been extremely strong in quant and weak in verbal, and i got an unbeleivably hard quant section and an easy verbal section. as a result i did better in verbal. that had never happened before.

also 1) - how much knowledge do people think can be lost in the span of about 3 weeks? i don't feel as if i have lost anything. i'd like to hear peoples thoughts.

I've never heard of any b-school that averages scores. Check out the info on the sites of the schools you're applying to, but I'm pretty sure that all of the top schools at least take the highest score.

You won't forget much in three weeks, but it wouldn't hurt to do more practice problems and/or another test before you retake.

You should not lose much in 3 weeks, but continuing to refresh and practicing is a must. After you take the GMAT and decide that you don't need what you learnt, you will probably forget it all in about 2 weeks.

I have heard about the higher score policy. I don't think there is a need to average, so kick that out of your head.

Reasoning from teh opposite, what if they do average? The only way to improve that is to re-take anyway. (I don't think they average though)
