Here’s the gist. I want to apply this year to UT McCombs, Darden, Yale, Univ of North Carolina, and Cornell. Should I take the GMAT again, or will it make my app look weak? Here’s my GMAT history:
Sept 2005 = 540 (fair amt studying)
July 2006 = 650 (TONS of studying)
Aug 2006 = 640 (still TONS of studying)
If I could take my best verbal from one exam and best quant from another exam, I could get a 730! (Just can’t seem to do my best in both areas on the same exam.)
So, I’m signed up again to take the GMAT a 4th time on Sept 9, 2006. If I get a higher score, it could help, right? Or does it look like I’m “gaming” the system? And there’s the chance I’ll score the same or lower. Should I take the GMAT again?
