Quant score 45 - Will it hurt me? [#permalink]

I have a quick question regarding my quant score. My composite score was a 710. My quant score however is a 45 or 77% (Verbal 41). My question is whether my quant score is going to affect my chances at the ultra elite and elite schools. I have a quant background in undergrad -albeit not as much quant as many on this web site. I took 3 statistics classes, one buisness Calc. class, and Calc. I from the math dept. I also have a econ degree with a couple of finance classes under my belt (All A's). I am still worried that my quant score is going to hinder my chances. What do you think?

I thought if I could score in the 700's my worries would be put to rest. Yeah right! Your input would be much appreciated.

Unfortunately our worries are never put to rest. Fortunately, in this case they may be a bit misplaced. 710 / 77% Quant is still a solid score. If you don't get intot top schools it won't be because of your GMAT. As such, I'd spend time on strengthening other application components.

Scott or Omari, I have realized that getting in another application in before the round 2 deadline is not possible. Especially since the holidays are right around the corner. I would like your opinion on whether I should apply in round 3. Am I throwing my money away? Schools I would still like to apply are Stanford and/or Duke. I know these are highly selective schools so your honest opinion would be greatly appreciated. My profile is below.

My profile:
Age: 29 - Married with 1 child on the way
Undergrad GPA: 3.82 - B.S. Economics (Weber State University)
GMAT: 710 (Q: 45 V: 41)
Areas of Focus: Mgmt. and Finance
Professional Work Exp.:
-2 years management for non-profit organization in southwest U.K.
-3 years financial manager 10th Air Base Wing (USAF) - budget >\$100 million
Part-Time Work Experience
-Teaching Assistant - WSU MBA Quantitative Methods Class
-Research Analyst - U.K. Parliament
-FBLA national economics competition - 1st place out of more than 100 contestants
-Golden Key, Beta Gamma Sigma National Honor Society
-Hansard Scholar (national award), Wall Street Fellowship Scholar (WSU award)
-Employee of the Quarter - selected from more than 400 other employees
-Summer abroad at London School of Economics (3.78 GPA)

I know this is limited information to base your judgment on, but I am interested in your opinion because your insight so far in my application process has been invaluable.

Thanks

Honestly, I do think that this is throwing money away, not because of your profile, but just because of the odds. If you were applying to lower-ranked schools, it might be different. But you're talking about the most selective (statistically) school in the country, and another one that's not too far behind. You may stand a chance with Fuqua, but Stanford would probably be a long shot.

I don't mean to sound discouraging!
