Currently have a GMAT score of 650 Q:46 and V:35. How do you all think UVA will react to that score? Getting a little stressed because I can't seem to move the needle any higher.

Any Insights about this score with Duke-Fuqua/UNC Flagler would be great too.

Trying to take it at least one more time to grab a few extra points.

Thanks

This is low but there is a possibility you could pull it off. It depends upon your profile group, if you are part of an overrepresented profile group than there's likely to be someone with a great profile but a better test score right next to you.

When it comes to test scores they want to know that you can handle the math, so I'm happy to see that your math score is decent, that's like the first order of business they need to know that you won't fail.

But then after that it becomes a contest between you and other people with similar profiles. So it's a game of really making yourself unique which is something that I work on as an admissions consultant

On your end, it's helpful to make sure your test score is competitive with those it was in your profile group people that have the same background citizenship Etc.

So if you're Indian or Chinese there's no way in hell this will work but if you are underrepresented in a significant way, it might work.

I would recommend that you try out the Manhattan GRE the mock exam and just see how that comes out because I've had clients who done no preparation do the GRE and it just comes out better.

I'm not sure if you're applying round 3 or what but if you're applying round 1 definitely get a tutor and do everything you can to really improve that score.

I used to be a verbal tutor and I'm here to tell you that it's difficult to be in the game and coach yourself.... you really needed someone else to observe what you're doing that is leading to the wrong answers. It's a game-changer if you get a good tutor.

Last of all, obviously Duke has a bit of a lower GMAT threshold but they have a much higher threshold in terms of collaboration and teamwork being maniacally collaborative basically. So just don't apply there if you are thinking they will accept your GMAT, because they are extremely fanatic about their employer reputation and choose people who help protect that reputation. in a nutshell if you're an introvert or a loner maybe don't apply there.
