Optional Essay Content

Hi there,
I have a question regarding the optional essay. I scored 600 on the GMAT, not a great score obviously, but either at, above, or within 20 points of my target school. I scored 530 on my previous attempt. Is it worth mentioning the 70 point increase in my optional essay?

Hi Brett, Thanks for your feedback. If I take the GMAT in Mid December, 2,5 months after that would put me at about early March. Submitting my applicationin March for a deadline that is in May is cutting it real close, and may really curtail my chances of being accepted. I am 29, and not getting any...
