Got a 44 V / 44 Q on a recent GMAT practice exam. I was a finance major at a reputable state school and have mostly A’s (and a few B’s) in my quant heavy courses. If I score similarly on the real exam, is the high V enough to offset the lower Q? Applying to T10. I’m a white female if it matters and am trying do either consulting or tech (i.e. nothing super quant intensive).

44 Q might be a bit too low. People working in tech and consulting are in general very data driven (though the math isn’t hard just addition or subtraction). Math is probably one of the easier parts to improve on, get it to 46 47 and I think you have a good shot!

Increase Q raw score. Top schools put more emphasis on Q than V.

Yes and no. Total score matters, but I know of people who were told by AdCom to increase their Q score.

I am a 1-2 year lawyer in a large law firm (BigLaw non-US/UK) and feel like I am being under-utilised in my current team/firm. I think the team is too heavily staffed at the junior level which means I’m not getting enough experience for my level. It’s also saturated with competent mid level lawyers who seem to get all the good work before it trickles down. A position has opened at a competitor firm that I am considering applying for. Looking for peoples thoughts - is now the time to leave?
