Should I retake? [#permalink] New post 26 May 2020, 12:12
I sat for the GRE for a fourth time and finally got the score I wanted in verbal. However, I will be applying to top-10 programs. My dream school is Yale SOM. Even though the GRE is just one factor, I want to make sure it is a factor that helps my application. Here is a history of my tests

GRE Official Tests

January 2018 -- Scored 314: 156 Verbal : 158 Quant
March 2018 -- Scored 303: 157 Verbal : 146 Quant (lost time because I had to use the bathroom)
April 2020 -- Scored 316: 157 Verbal : 159 Quant (1 week of preparation)
May 2020 -- Scored 323: 165 Verbal : 158 Quant (study really hard and figured out the way the verbal section is designed)

Highest Scores Across all Attempts (324): 165 Verbal : 159 Quant

The schools I am applying to take a look at the highest section scores across all attempts, so I was wondering if it would be worth it to try and hit 160+ quant considering the schools I am interested in are (1-6 with 1 being top choice). I realize a 323 is good enough for MOST schools, but for the schools below would a retake to hit 160+ quant be worth the time and effort?

1. Yale
2. Columbia
3. Wharton
4. Dartmouth
5. Cornell
6. Georgetown
