#1334 - 09/20/2001 21:17 PM How Important are GMAT Scores Really?

I've been taking GMAT practice tests on my own, and am consistently scoring between 640 and 660. I think that my other qualifications (GPA, writing and interview skills) can put me in the running for top-tier schools, but their median GMAT scores are listed higher. I'm wondering whether to go ahead and take the GMAT now, or if I should take a course and try to raise my score?

Suggestions? :)

Take a course. They *really* work. I did the Princeton Review and raised my score almost 30 points. If you are aiming for expensive private programs, just consider the price an investment in your future, just like school. :)
