Hi Linda,

I just read your "Is my GMAT good enough!" post from earlier this month and am hoping you might offer a bit of perspective for me. I recently took the GMAT (for the first time) and scored a 700 (Q47, V39), AWA 6, IR 6--my percentile breakdown was Q: 70%, V: 88%. However, after reading your post, I am marginally concerned that my quantitative percentile is too low for my target schools (H/S/W, Tuck, Booth, Kellogg, applying R1 '14 for each). I have a strong quantitative background with a MSc in Finance and Economics from a top UK program(me) and GRE scores with quantitative scores in the 80th and 89th percentiles. From your perspective and a hypothetical AdCom at my target schools, do my quantitative academic qualification and my GRE quantitative scores compensate for my lower GMAT percentile? Is my marginal concern warranted given my target school choices?

All my best,

YourGMAT score is not looked at in a vacuum. So while yes it is a lower than I would like given your target programs, you are presenting a lot of evidence of strong quant skills and the raw ability to do well. I think the question is going to be whether the rest of your application profile is compelling enough to earn you acceptance at these programs. Marginal concern is warranted; not applying is not warranted if everything else is strong for these schools.

Best,
Linda
