It’s good but if you can score higher, do it! Like a 740+ can do wonders for you both in terms of getting in and scholarship money. Also shows your persistence by taking it twice

in stats/crafting my story (my extracurriculars also ties into giving back). On that note, I’d need all the financial aid/scholarship I can get (Earning ~15% to what consultants in the US earns). Also was on scholarship for UG.

Or should I be focusing on other areas of my application?

Just got bombed my second round FDD assessment exam. Totally blew my chance with moving forward, which is OK. Up next, I’m talking to EY about a strategy & transactions associate position. Can anyone give me some tips on the interview process for SaT? Or any advice at all as I go forward with other interviews? I was really excited about this FDD role until I bombed the assessment. Now I feel like I’m not cut out for anything. Open to any advice. Thank you for your time.

GRE or GMAT? I didn’t take many quant classes (Econ major: econometrics, math classes and stats - 3/4 I got Bs in). Took the GMAT once and scored a 670 and just struggle at cracking the test, and have been thinking of switching to the GRE because it’s easier, but I’m worried my lackluster quant background isn’t a good look.

Other stats: 3.6 from T20 State School (UCLA/Michigan/UVA), consultant, then chief of staff role at mid-size tech company, and now in strategy at brand name startup
