My Experience-Should I retake? [#permalink]

Hi,

Got a good raw score 720 (95th). my breakdown though was 44Q (70th) and 45V (98th). I was a bit under the weather and froze a bit at the start of the exam on the Q part and know I can pull a 47-48. Is it worth retaking? Applying to Columbia, NYU, Darden, Penn.

Additional insight, I'm in level II of CFA and had a 3.81 undergrad in finance.

Any insight would be helpful.

Thx
GNR

You already have a good score. Your level II CFA and 3.81 GPA speak about your quantitative abilities. I don't think you need a retake :)

congratulations on your score :) Do share your GMAT experience and strategies :)

I agree, unless hitting the 750 mark will unlock some scholarship opportunities for you.

That being said, I'd keep the 720 :)

P.S. Congratulations on the score!

gunznrozez,
I think 720 is a good score for applying to top 20 school. If you are sure that by reappearing you will hit 750+ score then I would suggest go for it which might help you to apply for some scholarship.
good luck
