does colleges count best score from all gmat attempts?

Post Tue Sep 11, 2012 8:00 am
Hi everyone,

Background:- I already have a gmat sore of 680 but reappearing again in gmat within 2 weeks.
catch is that I didn't studied at all since last 4 months as I spent all my time in digging colleges and preparing essays.
so, I am out of touch for last 3 months and does not have sufficient time to revise. therefore, I am not expecting even last attempt score, that's 680.

Question:- should i go and try my luck for 700 OR should I give exam a miss, in case it will put an negative mark on my application.
not sure if colleges take the best score of all individual scores or the latest score?

Your score report will include all of your GMAT scores from the previous five years. Some schools will take into account all of your scores, while other schools will look only at your highest score. You may want to contact the school you plan to apply to directly to find out how they treat multiple GMAT scores. Good luck!
