Should I consider retaking the GMAT - what is the best timing?  [#permalink]

Hi, I just took the GMAT yesterday and scored a 710 (Q46/V42/IR8). I'm aiming for a T20 school, ideally with some scholarship $$. I think I could do better, I got up to 750 on practice exams.

So my question is - is it worthwhile to take the test again, and if so, should I try and complete it before finishing my R1 applications, or should I wait and take it once I've submitted.

Background:
3.25 GPA in International Studies - Business, Philosophy minor
Have worked in a variety of fields since graduation, currently 2nd year in NYC Real Estate sales
Will have close to 10 yrs. varied experience
Female/32 at application

My goals with B-School are to wrap up my diverse experiences and pivot into a career in business analytics using a data driven approach.

Planning to apply at: Columbia, Tepper, Tuck, Sloan, McCombs, Booth, Fuqua, & Stern (casting a WIDE net)

Hi somethinggmat,

Thank you for your post and for sharing your profile. To have a competitive score for the target schools, especially Columbia and Sloan, I recommend you retake the GMAT. For some schools, you can submit an update to your score after applications have been submitted; however, I know Sloan does not accepted updated scores after applications have been submitted. Check each schools' policies on this. That said, be mindful also of the time you will need to write and prepare for the other components of the admissions material as well. You do not want to submit a less than ideal profile with a 750 GMAT.

Happy to continue the conversation. If interested, please click here to coordinate a free 30-minute consultation.

Good luck!

if they are not interested in your essays/cv/recs/app the score will not matter. this is a fact.
might be an idea to retake after submitting but waiting on R2 for Sloan for the reason mentioned by SIA.
