Low Quant

Post Wed Aug 12, 2015 9:33 am
Hey,

I plan to apply to top MBA programs for the class of 2018 (HBS, Columbia, Booth, MIT, LBS..).
I believe my application is strong - a strong background both personal and professional.
I have extensive leadership and managerial experience from the military, very strong reccomndations and a very strong GPA (poli. scie. and philosophy major). I also believe I have a unique personal story and background.

I took the GMAT twice - first go was 690 and second was 710.
My 710 breakdown was Q44 V42 IR8 AWA6

The advice I seek is in regards to my low quant score. How bad is it? Do I have a chance at all if I don't improve it? and if so.. how much of a stretch would it be?

Thank you so much for you help!

Hmm, we'd say it's a BIT low. Safe bet would be to retake it - not to mention your overall score is below the median for most of those programs. A 44 is...not ideal.

Hey there, great question - can you answer a couple of questions for us?

1) Your age
2) Your ethnicity / citizenship
3) Your undergrad institution
4) Your undergrad GPA
5) Rate the quant nature of your professional career on a scale of 1 - 10, 1 being nothing at all, and 10 being you're knee deep in models every day

Thanks!
