Quick Question!

I have a borderline GMAT score (690). I want to take it again! Now I have a question! What happens if my new scores are lower than the existing scores?

Which score does the school consider? Also, will a lower 2nd score have any -ve impact on my overall application?

Perpectives, thoughts, suggestion, recommendations and insights all appreciated!

I understand your frustration. 690 its just under the magic number (i.e.700). On the other hand, you should step back for minute and realize that a 690 is f%9kin awesome score!!! Don't read into any of the myths that a top five school won't accept anything beneath a 700. What people seem to lose sight of far to often is that there is a lot more to the application process than the GMAT. If your essays are strong, and you have a somewhat unique background and are able to communicate that in your applications process, then IMO you are a very strong candidate for the top 5 with your current score.

From what I have consistently heard, schools only consider your highest score. So retaking should definitely not be detrimental to your application. However, I would seriously consider whether it is worthwhile spending the time re-taking with a 690. You might be better off focusing your efforts on other aspects of the application. Good luck.

Yeah, I wouldn't retake a 690 unless it's really unbalanced or your GPA is subpar. Otherwise it's very competitive.

Thanks Guys.

I have a relatively stong profile with good ECAs.

Though my GPA is a Pass with merit from NTU in Singapore. Not sure how that relates to in terms of GPA based on 4.0!

Saw your ECA in your website - very impressive. For the GPA, you can do some conversion yourself. But don't worry too much as the schools will do their own conversions.

Anyway, I'm from NTU too. Let's keep in touch.

All the best!

Well, it is not that redundant - but you are right, MBA is more useful to a non-biz grad than a biz-grad.

Anyway, I'm not going after a MBA at this point. I'm hoping to do a PhD.

Which schools are you targeting?
