I got a 710 score.(q49 v37)

However because of poor time management, I had 8 minutes for last 10 verbal questions. So, I panicked and guessed the last 10.
Should I consider retaking the exam?
If a 10 or a 20 point improvement is possible, will it significantly improve my chances at a good school.

I have 5 years of work exp in consulting(analytics) but a low CGPA :2.1

(I got 700 and 720 in the GMATprep practice tests)

I have 5 years of work exp in consulting(analytics) but a low CGPA :2.1Yes- I think if you can do a bit better that with your GPA being on the lower side, you will want a score as high as possible to help you offset that gpa.
