I just finished retaking the GMAT. Overall my score improved from 500 to 570. Standardized tests have always been my downfall, so I don't think retaking the GMAT will help too much. I'm trying to get into the USC MBA.PM program for the class of 2017. The average GMAT score is 600...

I have about 5 years full time work experience, though did have previous part time jobs.
I graduated with a Business Economics B.A. and minor in management from UCI. my GPA was 3.3 USC average last year was 3.1.

I'm thinking if it is worthwhile to retake the GMAT or focus on my application essay and resume. The deadline is 6/1/14

Hi amy888,

Thanks for your email. If you are looking to attend USC, I do recommend you take the GMAT again. The reason is that your highest GMAT score is self-reported on your application, so admissions teams will focus on your best score. There isn't any harm to taking the exam again.

If you'd like, MBA.com provides 2 free GMAT exams. We also provide free GMAT advice here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/test-prep-hub/, and we provide free 30 minute phone consultations here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/contact/

Cheers,
Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
