I know there are a million of these out there, but I searched and couldn't find a suitable discussion of my issue. I appreciate any help that you guys can give.

Here is my situation:

I took the GMAT last month and scored a very respectable 720. However, my breakdown wasn't quite qhat I would have liked. I scored a Q44 and a V45. There is nothing in my application to suggest that I am particularly quant inclined to compensate, though I have solid grades in my math courses. I come from a career that is pretty non-standard for b-school (Teach For America), so I probably won't be judged against the IB and IT folks. However, I am still concerned that it could raise flags in my application. I am applying at SOM, Tuck, CBS, Ross, and Johnson.

The question is: given that I was consistently scoring 740-760 in my practices (with a higher Q and similar V) should I sit for the test again to try to close that gap? Is it worth the \$250 or does my overall 720 do enough to make it a non-issue?

Again, Thanks!

If I were you I would take it one more time and do it quickly. Don't waste any more time studying. If you get a better score, great, if its the same, then leave the GMAT and move on to other parts of your app.
