700.. Should I give it again?

Post Thu May 24, 2007 1:42 pm
Hi,
I gave GMAT today and got 700, V35, Q49.
I am not sure if I should be happy with this or should I go for another attempt.

BTW, I am Ambar, from India, 5 yrs IT work ex, with 3 yrs work ex in US. I am opting for 1 year MBA in India and European Inst like INSEAD and et al.
I checked the sites and found that the average of all European Inst is around 680-690, so the score is good for that. But looking into the Indian colleges, average of ISB is 705 and IIM A 695.
HAd my score be aroud 680, I would have definitly considered for a re-take but with 700 in hand, do I still need to go for another one?

BTW, I have a big collection of notes, which I prepared during examination and will upload in a while.

Ambar

700 is good enough to get you an admit. If you were aiming for a US B school and also for a scholarship, then you might have benefited from a 750+, but for European and Indian schools, 700 is sufficient.

Well done - excellent score!
I think that score is good enough to get you admitted anywhere.. a few points more won't help your chances substantially, so I wouldn't retake in your position. With such a great score, the determining admissions factor will be your general app, so I would work on that. I know several people at HBS with 680-690 so that is another reason I think you should leave it at that. As you said European business schools have slightly lower GMAT stats anyway.
The worst is behind you!
Congratulations on a brilliant score Smile
