I got a 690 and am pretty happy, but damn it, I am going to take it again
I want to score 700+ for my personal satisfaction, and I like studying for the thing-I know..I am weird. !

A! The barrier graade! Always a tough one whether or not to retake. The hundreds digit of 6 is just a killer. Who doesn't want to be part of the 700 club?

Cheers dude

I am in the same boat as you! Stuck at 690 (twice)! I will take it after applying... just for personal satisfaction!

If i can get in the target school, I must be really lifeless to take the exam just for the sake of it.

I was thinking about this as well for the longest time. I think I bombed the AWA purposefully (unconscious is powerful) so I have an excuse to take test twice. But when I got a decent 5.0 I really ran out of excuses.

As of late, I've come to grips with the fact that a difference of 20-30 points is not that big a deal. At the highest end of the spectrum, a difference of 40-50 points is no big deal. Of course, not everyone thinks so.

Just remember, the GMAT does not define you.

we must remember that Gmat is a score to get into the school. don't make the Gmat itself a goal if it can already carry you to the destination.

i think all of us have the thinking that we must score higher, or should have scored higher after 3 or 4 months of studying, but step on your brakes, you have already arrived.
