While applications are looked at in a holistic manner so that a low quant score can be offset by other components in an application, i'm interested to hear what a "low" quant score would be for applications to top schools.

I got a 740 (97th %ile) in the gmat but with a Q48 (69th %ile), V42 (96th %ile). I was scoring around Q50 in practice tests but felt the total score was good enough, so decided to stay put and concentrate on essays etc. Is the Q48 any reason for concern? How much weight do schools put on the quant score and at what level does it become a concerning factor?

Many thanks in advance.

740 is a really high score. I don't think that Business School will have any concern about your Quant score. Also, I don't see any difference between Q48 and Q50. Thus, in my opinions, you are good to go with your high score as 740 now :-D Good luck!

We have had a former mod admitted to booth with Q44/V44. She was a marketing career focused person and math was not in her way. If anything, she added a good degree of diversity.
