I took the test on Saturday. Unofficial score of 730, 96% (Q: 44, 70%; V: 48, 99%).

Applying to HBS, Stanford, Columbia and Northwestern.

I'm happy with the overall score, but the AdComms might not like my math score. What do you think? Should I take it again?

The schools might not like the fact that I haven't taken (haven't had to take) any math classes since high school, so the Q score may look worse then. But then again I've been running a very successful nonprofit for 12 years, during which time I've done the banking/accounting/budgeting. I'm hoping that will make up for any perceived lack of quant ability.

What do you guys think?

Should be fine....
Why do you want to risk a good overall score?
Adcom will only look at the higher score, not the raw score individually.

My 2 cents

Your Verbal is amazing-- your Quant however, you can definitely improve on that.

I think B-schools put more weight on the Quant than the Verbal, and you already killed the Verbal, so if you do happen to get lower on the Verbal, they can go well he got a 50Q the second time, and he managed a 48V the first time... you get the picture.

Definitely rewrite.
