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 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%)

Hey Joejohn101:

The first thing the check is whether or not these programs take updates after you have submitted the application. As long as you can clear that hurdle the simplest answer and approach to this dilemma is to simply call the admissions committee and ask if they want the new score, or if they only want to see a score that is higher overall.

Don't be afraid to do this. The admissions committee is relatively straightforward in their responses. They're not gonna play games. If they don't want the updated score, they're not going to put a note in your file saying that you are an automatic ding.

Basically, a five-minute phone call can save you a lot of anguish and nailbiting. Just make the call and if you don't mind, let me know what they say.

Respectfully,
Paul Lanzillotti
