Need Advise - 690 GMAT  [#permalink]

Hello,

I gave my second attempt on the gmat last weekend and scored a 690.
I am a bit disappointed I missed being part of the "700 Club" by 10 points since I was consistantly scoring a 720 in all practice tests.

I scored a 620 in my first attempt but wasnt convinced this was accurate since I was scoring a 720 consistantly in all practice tests at the time.

I have 2 questions :

1. Do all universities consider the highest score of all attempts or take an average. I have not read any clear take on this anywhere on the university websites.

2. How does this score compare? I thought getting a 700 would make admissions into the top schools a non issue from a GMAT score perspective. But I m not sure how a 690 fits in terms of cutoff for top schools.

Would appreciate any feedback.

Thanks!

1. Highest score. A 690 is good enough for all the top programs.

2. At this point, the GMAT score will mainly be used to separate like candidates. Example: if one spot is between you and another candidate and the school doesn't have much to differentiate on, the GMAT score will come more into play.

You're on the table for all top programs. Focus on your application and you should be fine.
