Hi All, does it make sense to take GMAT again. I want to def. apply in R1 this year and want to apply to H/S/W.. I believe I can get a score of 750 + but does that look okie to the admission committee... as to why is the guy taking the exam so many times.

I applied this year but got dinged by everyone

Any suggestions..

hey,

did you take the MGMAT 1 free course of their 9 session program?

In that it was mentioned by the instructor that its okay to take the test 2-3 times and the school normally considers your highest score. it is only problem if you take the test like 10 times...when the school suspects your ability.

you can enroll for their free 1st session and get some more info.

If you've got a 710 already and were rejected by your target schools, then I'd recommend that you spend more time focusing on the essays. Your 700+ GMAT score is already pretty good and you dont need to re-write it.

Yep, I totally second redjam's comment here...

710 is a competitive score at any school and you can be sure no school is going to reject you because of it...further, if you are so keen on H/S/W, it would be probably more advisable that you focus on your app because its not as if they would reject you at 710 but accept you at 750..

Thank you guys for your generous reply but I think that the Indian pool is so competitive that if it boils down to hard stats it makes sense to do the numbers and then the GMAT is the most objective number

Manu,

If your score only went up 20 points in between the first two, I'm guessing you didn't have to study all that much more for the retake. If you have the energy left, you could probably dedicate 1 or 2 months to the GMAT and get that 750 with still enough time to work on some essays for R1. But at the school's you are looking to apply to, I'm sure you wont be the only 750 applicant so you will need to show you are more than good test taker.

Manu, to sleep better, here is what I decided:
among trustworthy CATs, Veritas free test is the only one I did not try yet. SO I gonna take it this week and then, depending on the score received, to decide whether to take the test.

If I decide to continue the study, I gonna milk GMAT Prep of all questions, especially SC ones + practice GMATClub math tests.
