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 JoeJohn101! I really feel for you... what a bummer to rock the verbal only to tank the quant!! In general schools pay more attention to the quant... so I think there may be more harm in showing the new score. Because for them to see that 21% quant could freak them out more than they will be excited to see you go from 85% to 98% in verbal. And yes the IR went up too... but I just would not want that new Q score hanging around... I think that damage could trump all else. That's just my opinion... and different schools and adcoms could see it differently... my advice... since you know you can do it... try again and get a good night's sleep and try to put your best efforts all into the same test! Good luck!!
