UNIQUE DILEMMA?? SHOULD I SEND IN NEW SCORE GMAT!? [#permalink]

I have a dilemma I’m trying to work through regarding the submission of a new GMAT score.
I have applied (in round 2) to NYU, Cornell, UVA, Yale, Georgetown.

My profile is 3.7 top 25 university
Strong work experience, strong recs
Weak background in quant (Philosophy Major)
Under represented minority

Original score Q44 (54%) V38(85%) 680 (84%) AWA 6.0 (90%) IR 2 13%

The new score went up significantly on Verbal and IR but down significantly on Quant.
Would it still be worth sending this in?

New score Q31 (21%) V44(98%) IR 5 (54%) 620 (66%)

Hi there,

No, I would advise against submitting the new score for a couple of reasons. a) The schools will be looking to your quant score for comfort that you can handle the quantitative rigor of the MBA curriculum, particularly in light on your qualitative/humanities background. While a 44 isn't knocking it out of the park, a 31 is significantly worse (as you know). b) The overall score went down by 60 points, which is material. A 620 is going to be a cause for concern for any of the schools you applied to.

I'm glad you asked and confirmed but I don't think this new score will strengthen your application, unfortunately. Best of luck to you!

Kindly,
Melody
