Despite getting 730 on my practice tests, I still ended up with a 710 (Q47, V41). Obviously I am pretty disappointed, but I’ll take it. A 710 is still a great score (92 percentile), it just means I will have to really sell the other parts of the application. I am also pretty disappointed that I let my readers down… just got to find a different way to stand out in the application now!
The silver lining:
There is a little bit of silver lining in this situation: Tuck allows you to combine your Quantitative and Verbal scores from different tests. So for Tuck, I will be able to report a 730 (whew).
I clearly had WAY TOO MUCH on my plate (3 jobs, plus 2 non-profit jobs). I am still a big believer in my process and highly suggest these top 6 key resources for the GMAT. Here are my lessons learned:
- Take the GMAT early (don’t do it while you are applying like me…. TWICE)
- Allow yourself plenty of time to study; I had way too much stuff going on
- A high score is achievable for ANYONE… I still believe that
