620!
quant 47
verbal 29
LOL - F*** my Life!!!!! (excuse me)
I don't know what happend!

I have never ever scored below 30, not even during the first practice test I did without even looking at the books once.

Sentence corrections and time killed me. Quant went so so, but in quant I am just on top of my game, but verbal... seriously.
LSE dream just died. I'll prob gonna retake it in 31 days.
Do you guys think it still makes sense to apply to LSE in mid April??
Cheers, Cdawg

btw: last three Gmat manhattan tests at least verbal 40, quant 46-48. MBA.com prep tests Q2x49 V38 & 40

I need some serious strategies to pwn the verbal part. (I am willing to invest 10 more days) Any suggestions?

yeah if you were consistently around 40's in Verbal it was probably simply a fluke...
