We all know this is a high stress, high pressure environment.

Would you consider it worth it to re-take GMAT if you’re not sure about doing an MBA? I got a not so great score (~640, after months of practice) last April and found it very demotivating, so I just gave up. My quant was especially low and much lower than I was getting on practice tests (maybe partially due to test anxiety). I just feel stuck and unable to make a decision, and worry that I will lose motivation if I start practicing again.
So I know historical Booth has released their interview decisions this coming Friday but we actually think it will happen? Has anyone heard anything concrete
700+ GMAT scorers: how accurate have you found practice tests from different companies? I found myself bouncing by quite some points (30-40 around the 720-760 range) doing different companies’ tests and wonder if people have a sense of which ones seem most accurate. Trying to figure out since I’m retaking to try and up a few points from my current 720...

Improving Academic Aspect of Profile
I’m curious what else I can do to show my academic improvement since undergrad. My undergrad GPA was 3.2 as I struggled my first two years since I did not know what I wanted to do professionally and had GPA of about 2.9. After I figured out what I liked, I majored in Statistics and ended up with an average GPA of 3.45 in my final two years even with all my advanced classes. At least this shows an upward trajectory. Also my GRE is 166Q and 161V.
Graduated with a 2.9 in engineering 8 years ago. Have worked as engineer and consultant for the past 8 years, including several years abroad. Any chance at M7? What about INSEAD or LBS?

Male, European, 770 GMAT, first class in economics from LSE, 2 years of work experience in MBB. I won’t be sponsored so I want to max on scholarship and I am thinking whether it makes sense to hire a consultant for this specific school
