Any idea what the gre target score is for MBB for an m7 student?

Don’t retake. M7 supersedes any “cutoff score” (which we don’t have). If you’d had an eyebrow-raising score (say 760+), it might help but your time is better spent on resume, stories, and networking.

Thanks for the advice. You may have saved me 100+ hours of studying haha

Retake. Do a lot of recruiting here. Sub 700 is suspect unless you have something else pretty interesting on your resume.

Its clear the verbal score brought your overall score down. I would listen to BCG1, and spend the time networking and prepping for interviews.

Lol bcg1 that’s crazy. I did not do well on the gmat (650 with a 47 quant) and got in so o was wondering if I should just take the gre and improve my standardized test scores and I want to avoid getting cut for a low score

Lol what M7 took you with that low of a GMAT? You clearly must have something else in your profile that was compelling so I would guess it doesn’t matter muc

Also what percentile is 47 quant these days? I was 49 and that was < 90th percentile so sounds like your quant was low and your verbal was really low.
