Following! I was working to retake my gmat but I also do have my interview invites now. So wondering if I should be focusing on interviews now and let GMAT go!

Well I read that after the interviews, Adcoms go through the entire application again to evaluate and make a final decision. I’d imagine it’s not as important before the interview, but you don’t want it to be something that would keep you out ultimatey

Thanks for the response! I’ve already applied and received a few interviews, but my gmat score is slightly below average. Was wondering what the impact would be.

How much time do you have to study/retake? It may be worth more focusing on your story and interview preparation. In my opinion, if your gmat is over 710 and you have an interview I don’t think retaking would be worth all of the effort it unless you know you could crush it and score 730+.
