Should I take GMAT for the third time? 690GMAT score [#permalink]

The first time I took GMAT I scored 660 (Q48, V32).

On the second try, I got 690 (Q 50, V34).

I am wondering if I should take it for the third time.

My dream is to attend top MBA schools such as Harvard and I feel my score is not sufficient enough.

How do I get penalized if I take it too many times?

If you are confident you can get a 740 or greater, then re-take it one last time. Otherwise, don't bother.

There are tons of example who got into Harvard with 690, you should focus more on writing a top application essay.

GMAT, should be chapter closed in your books, IMO. Move to application essays, they'll require you to spend loads of time.

Btw, Q50 V34 - would sum to ~710, that's what I've seen around here.

Good luck!

what about if you got a 690 GMAT score (88%) but the split was 43 Math (67%) and 41 Verbal (92%)?

Depends on many variables - the school you're applying, the demography you're from, the profile you've built et cetera.

On a personal front, I wouldn't give it another shot if I'd score 690. Essays, to me, are far more important than GMAT. So, it's wise to dedicate more time on essays. Again, it's just my view.

8 year exp seems a bit high now for the top programs. Most of them are recruiting with 2-4 work experience. The score is probably pretty low for the top ones, say top 20 schools, so you should consider retaking gmat with better preperation.
