640 - disappointed [#permalink] New post 15 Mar 2006, 04:08
Preparation - for last 4 months (I don’t know how much I studied before on and off). Focused preparation for last 1 week. Finally I get a disappointing - 640 (48, 30).

I don’t know for what target schools I stand a chance for this score of 640. I can’t even sleep today thinking all the time about the score. I studied hard, put up a good effort, but I couldn’t get at least what I wished for - 680, 690 target.

My preparation so far
Manhattan online course - all 7 strategy guides, additional questions, their online course itself
Kaplan, Princeton 2003 book
SC -1000 (Did 500 questions), CR -1000(200 questions), RC -1000 (200 questions)

Princeton tests - 630, 640, 680
Manhattan online 3 tests - 550, 590, 630
GMATPrep1, GMATPrep2 - 690, 680

Ladies and gentlemen in this forum. Please suggest what I could possibly do NOW. I am not sure I can take this exam again. Because every time I focus on it, I get obstacles. Family life, work pressure - I know all this is common to all of us, but still I am a little weak in handling all this. So please encourage, suggest.

My profile
6 years IT experience
4 years international experience (if that helps)
Typical profile of any other average Indian IT engineer in US.

Which target schools can I focus on if I have 640 and the above?
If I were to take it again, what materials should I be focusing on?

Although my performance sounds not so good, I still want to thank everybody in this forum for their encouragement, help, suggestions, and more importantly questions of all types and all levels. Thank you all !!. Without this forum I would not have got 640.

dont be so disappointed......u r too good...only u can reassure urself...ok?
i too am at the same score.....try again...and again...till u feel u cant do better....
as for now relax...take a break...and start again....

ppl make into bschools...and the top ones...even at early 30s....think what is ur priority...top 15 dream school..or to move on with what u get now....

u can do it!!!!nothing less to be an indian IT, me too the same....in fact lesser than u coz i am in india for most part of my career.....

cheer up and buck up!!!!!dream hard.....very hard...till it becomes a reality!

best of luck!

dont be dissapointed.. maybe it was just a bad day.. we all know how luck plays part in GMAT.. The hard questions you get right might just be the ones they dont account for( some questions are used for future tests).. So, dont give up hope and it seems you are well prepared.. give it a shot in one more month.. Don't wait for too long!!

Your profile is expectable to most of BigB schools, if not I am also in trouble.

I feel your score needs reconsideration. Take one more shot to achieve 700+ ‘Nirvana’ state.

Thanks crazyfin for your encouraging words.
MA466 - I am happy to see somebody boosting my confidence. thanks to you.
bewakoof - I will try to give another shot in the next 45 days. Thanks for your advice.
chiragr - you are right. My score needs reconsideration. Improving Verbal is difficult. But I will try.

Chiragr and to others in this post if the following helps
On the profile - I did post my profile and got a suggestion from Scott in the MBAGamePlan section of this forum. You may want to take a look at what he says, it may help you as well if you lacking on any other parts of the application (extracurricular activities, community development).

Looks like I was on the same boat a few months back. I think that you just have to focus on your weak area and you'll get the score you want. You are nearly there. You quant score is already high and if you raise your verbal score by a few points, you might get 700+.

You can read my post using this link: http://www.gmatclub.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=27532

If the link does not work, the title of my post is "From 640 to 690 (Q47, V39)".

Good luck and never give up. :)
