Gurpreet Paaji, Salute to you!!! :lol:

You are one hell of a fighter , I am still in awe of my embarrassing score 2 days back so I am trying to gain some inspirations or motivations to get me started again from this weekend and bingo I read your posts you are such an inspiration for me.I can relate myself to you in many aspects like in next year or so I have to marry so its high time for MBA (Typical Punjabi IT guys thinking NOM to all the IT guys)

Being a non native and engineering student I am pathetic in Verbal.
Powerscore CR and Manhattan SC will be my bible for next one and a half month, Can you guide for RCs as well ??

Thanks,
Abhinav

:lol: not a big deal because you have already decided to fight again so do not worry at all. Keep working hard. For RC I think best is to practice questions as much as you can. try to use different strategies found on this forum. For RC only practice is the key.

You can RC from official guides and RC99 book.

Seem to have the opinion is that its extremely tough for Indian tech guys to get selected in Round 2 unless one GMAT score is 740+. The reason I believe this guys with 750+ scores will apply to some of the M7 schools and a few in 8-20 range in Round 1. However a lot of Indian guys in the range of 680-740 apply in Round 1 and some of them are selected. By the time Round 2 comes all Indian IT quota is almost full and they will only consider some exception profile like 4+ years experience in US or branch topper from Top 10 Engg colleges or super fast promotions etc.

Yes Abhi, I fully agree with you. :P It is not easy for Indian IT Male with not so spectacular profile to get through.

Gurpreet Veerji,

:thumbup: ... You are a true fighter...

You had a burning desire to excel in exam which propelled you to success despite adverse conditions.

Hope you are in pink of health now.

I'm also preparing myself to have a serious second attempt after failing in my 1st Attempt. ( 650 - Q46 V34 ).
So, Keep inspiring us with your stories.

Raminder.

You are not a failure untill you begin to blame somebody.

Hi Gurpreet,

Which university are you applying/already got accepted into?

This thread has given me a lot of hope. I was exactly like what you mentioned in the first post, spending all my time on GMAT and neglecting important things in life until i really burnt out.
