How bad does inconsistancy hurt???

Post Tue Mar 27, 2007 5:53 pm
Recently took the GMAT on March 26th. I fell I did fine on the essays (yet to be reported), completely botched the quantitative section, and did well on the verbal portion.

Overall, my score is higher than the average that my desired school admits (according to the website), but I am still concerned with my inconsistency in scoring (over 40% difference!).

Nothing in my past shows this level of variation in my performance. I was prepared for the math section, but simply got tied up on a few difficult problems and lost grip of my time management.

Does anyone have an experience like mine and that can provide helpful advice? I am concerned that the school will hold these dreadful 75 minutes against me.

I did well in Verbal, but not very well in Quant.

Overall my score is fine, but it is made up of two very different scores.

It's very difficult for me to comment on this with such limited info. Confused

Info like your desired specialisation, the schools you are aiming for, and most importantly your actual GMAT score (with split )
