I am applying to Haas and Sloan. I have taken the GMAT twice, 690 (q49,v35) and 710 (q45,v42)... yeah, it sucks...
I am a non-native english speaker, so the verbal part was hard.

My question is... Should I send my 690 or my 710 in my application? I have a very good GPA from a very good university in my country (9.3/10).

What do you think guys?

Thank you!

Bummer. Tough score split. I would flash both of your score on the score report (meaning have both of them show up). However, I would show the higher score - if you look through the Decision Tracker for your schools - you will find that some folks had lower Quant Scores. However, nobody had sub-700 really.

From drop down pick 2020 (Class of, meaning they applied last year) or 2019 (applied 2 years ago) ... acker.html ... acker.html

Angel1234, I would definitely submit both. And I'm pretty sure that when MBA programs pull your score data, they'll have access to all of the non-canceled scores, anyway. So they'll see them in any event, and that's a perfectly good thing in your case. You WANT them to see that you can crush both the quant and the verbal, even if those crushings didn't happen on the same day. :)

I also think that it wouldn't hurt for you to keep retaking the test, even if you don't plan to do much more studying. Schools really don't care how many times you take it, and you can always cancel the scores later, and they'll never see them in that case. If you can come close to combining the 49Q with the 42V on the same day, that would obviously help your case quite a bit.

Good luck with everything!

I would recommend to send both, because it shows improvement and dedication

While the Q49 is nice, the 710 overall is not too shabby as well

A couple of things that helped me in verbal:

Gmat Prep CAT #1: V42, Q34, 630
Gmat Prep CAT #2: V46, Q35, 660
Gmat Prep CAT #3: V41, Q42, 680

On the mission to improve my quant score, all help is appreciated! :)
