Hi, and thanks for writing! It looks like you have some strong work experience and solid extracurricular involvement. For the top 15 schools, 700+ would definitely help given that you're applying from a heavily represented demographic. For consulting, you can't go wrong with any of the schools you mentioned, so take note of each program's culture, teaching style (Darden is 100% case), and geography when deciding which one is right for you. This perspective, and your research, will increase your chances by helping you make a strong case for why you're a fit for a specific program.

I hope that helps as a starting point! Let me know of any other questions :)

Thanks! This might be a stretch, but obviously in my second GMAT verbal was a bit lower than preferred. I know that most schools will receive your GMAT score report and see that you have taken it more than once, scores, etc. Do admissions ever, not necessarily combine scores, but give any consideration to the individual scores for each individual sitting? Effectively seeing that, while the V35 was lower on the second sitting, I am capable of something along the lines of a V39? Obviously I didn't, but had those been it been Q47 V39, I'd probably reach the 700 barrier...just luck of the draw.

Curious what you have to say! Thanks again for taking the time.
