Hello All,

I know it is the average at harvard...and that is what i told my Mom HAHA

You beat the GMAT. Any score of 700+ is beating the gmat, at least 92% of the test-takers would agree. Great job!

The only compelling reason I can think of to re-take is if you need to compensate for a weak GPA or weak work experience. A higher GMAT can help there as well.
Actually a 740 won't help much versus a 700. (If they don't take you with a 700, they DON'T WANT YOU. A 750 won't help.)

A good reason to consider taking GMAT again if you have a high scaled score is if your sub scores are out of balance. (A V=45 & Q=34 - or the reverse - would call negative attention to your skill set.)
