Student scores a 730 on the GMAT. Good enough for top MBA programs?
I scored a 730 the 2nd time I took the GMAT (47Q 68%, 42V 96%). The first time I scored a 700 (49Q 79%, 36V 81%). Should I be concerned about my low quant score (in particular the percentile) if I am applying to top 10 MBA programs? I did not take any quant courses in undergrad, and my work experience isn’t particularly quant related.
You’re in good shape. The 730 and the 47 on quant are sufficient. I would not expect any adcom pushback on that GMAT score profile. You’re set. No more worries about the GMAT. Start cracking those apps!
Good work. Best wishes with your endeavors!
**Side note: if you get any pushback on the low quant, point to the first test. Quant of 49 is great. The jump from GMAT 1 to GMAT 2 represents a solid performance. It can work to your favor – you saw the weakness, you fixed it.
