Hello Stacy,

I have heard that both Dartmouth and Yale get the highest Quantitative and Verbal scores if the applicant has taken the GMAT more than once. Do you know what other schools evaluate GMAT scores this way? Are there any others in the Top 30 that do so?

Most schools actually take the highest score - that's why it almost never hurts to retake the exam.

Actually, I'm referring to schools that take the highest Verbal and highest Quant score from multiple exams, where the Quant and Verbal don't necessarily belong to the same exam. So for example

Exam 1: Q: 45 V: 32
Exam 2: Q: 41 V: 39

The school would then get the highest Q and V scores, so it would consider your Q score as 45 and your V score as 39. :D
