Lower GMAT after second time

My first GMAT was 650 and I took it again. I got a 600! I was really trying for 700 and did a lot of studying before I took it. I'm just not sure what to do anymore. Should I just stick with the 650 and hope for the best, or should I try again? I am so frustrated!

That depends. Have you taken actual practice tests? If so, had you been scoring higher on the practices?

Was there a particular section you have been struggling with, or was your poor performance just across the board?

It's always the quantitative. I took a practice test before the real one and was at 700.

The generic advice is always: if you think you can do better, then re-take. If not, then don't. Maybe run through another practice exam to see where you're landing the quant now?
