Today: Dissappointing 630 (q50, v25)
I prepared 1.5 month. More than 90% of my time I spent on Verbal (OG11, Kaplan 800, MGMAT SC, Sahil's note, some sets, 100/1000 SC and CR). Nevertheless, I bombed Verbal part again.
Usually my accuracy in verbal was : SC (85-90%), CR 80%, RC(67-75%).
Practice tests:
MGMAT 1--580 (q44, v28) on 07/15/2008
GMATPrep1 retake: 760 (q50, 46) on 07/29
MGMAT 2--650 ( q48, v 31) on 08/03/2008
MGMAT 3--620 (q46, v30)
GMATPrep 2 retake : 750 (q50, v41) on 08/27/2008
Princeton review free CAT--680 (q48, v 38) on 09/01/2008

Actual GMAT 630 (q 50, V25) on 09/04/2008

I was planning to apply to Haas 09, Darden 09, BU, Mendoza, Clark University ( in order of preference). My recent GMAT score blew first 4 but Clark.
My credentials:
I am from: Central Asia
Bachelor's degree: International business ( GPA 3.9- with honor). Got it in my country
Work experience: 2 years, financial manager. Construction firm.

Here are a lot of experienced guys with sufficient knowledge about Uni's and admission process. I need ur advice
!1111) Taking into account all the credentials and recent score WOULD YOU, GUYS, RECOMMEND ME TO RESCHEDULE THE GMAT for the 3rd time?
11112) Due to little work experience( as I provided above), what is the minimum score in my GMAT that may secure a place in Haas and Darden?
11113) What materials do u suggest to improve verbal. How long should I study for next attempt?

Thanks. I highly appreciate ur opinions.

Test experience:

Q (Math):
It seems to me Q part is getting harder.Not because it includes permutation or combinatorics but because it is tricky and time consuming. PS is OK, but DS requires much more attention than u expect.
1) I didn't see any probability questions. Inequality, sets ( Venn diagram),median, power, polynomials, linear equations, work-distance-mileage problems are common.
2) Q in real Gmat is much harder than Q in OG and sets (1-30) but is typical, if not a little bit harder version, of GMATPrep Q.

If you aren't in a rush, I suggest taking your time studying for a third attempt. With only 2 years of experience, it will help you gain more work experience and also prepare more for a retake. 630 is still a respectable score, but Haas is extremely competitive, and I read somewhere that 42% of its applicants are international, so since you are international upping your GMAT would be necessary in my opinion for that school.

It is sad to hear that
what is your problem in Verbal? I vote for retake with a focus on only OG Verbal material as your Quant is like mine

Hi, Looks like someone is facing the same problem.

This was my first attempt. I got a 600 (q47v27). I am amazed that I got a really low verbal score. I didn't score so low in any of the MGMATs or the GMAT Prep. I was usually in the range of 650 to 680. I was near my target in quants, but failed miserably in verbal. I scored somewhere around 36 in verbal section on all of the practice tests.

Maybe I got exhausted by the time I reached verbal. I never practiced any of the tests along with AWA. But I dont want to blame anyone but myself for this.

guys, has verbal become really tough compared to the practice tests..???

Honestly, you should practice with the AWAs. It's the only way to build up the mental stamina to make it through the verbal. Do a test every weekend, you'll get there.

I think you are right. In one of the test I took the math and verbal sections separately and found that my score had jumped to 730 and this was one of the tests I gave before I started preparing.

This was pretty weird. It was my bad.. I should have taken a lesson from it and practiced with the AWAs to see my concentration levels near the end of the exam. Well... lets see... I should definitely take another exam..
