Hi whatisinthename11,

Raising your Quant Scaled Score 1 point is almost certainly not going to raise your overall score 20 points (it would likely raise it 10 points). With a 700/Q50, you already have an outstanding score (it's right around the 90th percentile overall), so there's some question as to why you want to retest. Assuming you're looking to raise your overall score by a considerable margin, you're going to have to find those missing points in the Verbal section.

1) What Schools are you planning to apply to?
2) When are you planning to apply?

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