Should I take the GRE [#permalink]

Hey,

Just finished my fourth iteration of the GRE. It was my highest score yet. I got in the 93rd percentile verbal (163) and 70th percentile quant (158). I majored in History at the military academy and had a 3.1 GPA. Spent 6 years in the army and had a stellar career. I just started working at one of the big 4 consulting firms. I'm looking at Applying to Tuck, Columbia, Yale, NYu, Darden, and Duke. Showing I have the quantitative competence to succeed is what I am worried about.

The big question is: should I take the GRE again or take a finance course?

I've already taken an Econ course (I got an A) and HBX CORE.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Hi. 321 in GRE is quite a good score. Having said that, it is better to have a 325+ score to actually come in the comfortable zone while applying. Your verbal is quite strong. I think you can brush up the basics of the topics in quant that are asked in the test. Gmatclub will also be very useful for practicing questions. I would say you can give GRE one more try. If you currently involved in some major assignments, then I think 321 is good to go. If you have time then GRE again. All the best!

An improved GRE will have a greater impact than an extra course. So I would try to improve your score if you can. Now you can also take the course afterwards but do what makes sense. You don't want your course to bump against preparing your R1 apps
