Hi roxleslie,

Earlier, I asked about the Scaled Scores (those are the numbers from 1-51 for the Quant and Verbal sections; NOT the percentiles), but your percentiles and overall scores are enough to properly define your situation. I understand how frustrating all of this might be; your two GMAT scores are close enough that they prove that you continue to 'see' (and respond to) the GMAT in the same way that you did before (which is why your scores are so similar). To earn that higher score than you're after, you're going to have to make some serious adjustments to how you handle the Quant section - which will mean learning (and continually practicing) new tactics.

Thankfully, the GMAT Quant section is remarkably predictable, so you CAN train to score at a higher level. Since you've been studying for some time, you've likely developed a number of 'bad habits' though and that might take some time to get you out of. All things being equal, I think that you could probably retest in 1-2 months and hit your goals.

Have you scheduled your next appointment yet?
If necessary, can you push your applications back to Round 2?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
