Congratulations ghoc! 690 is a great score! And 80 points increase in such a short time. It sure was worth it to take it the second time. :) Let us hear your story when you are rested. :)

I agree on what members said before, 690 is already an incredible score, be proud of your achievement....10 pts in the GMAT is not huge, it's quite nothing in fact...but I understand your feeling about breaking the 700 barrier :roll:

Awesome job.

680 is a great score. Don't worry the application process is a complete package. The essays, your work experience and everything. So they will evaluate you as a whole not by a 10 point differential.

Awesom job. I hope I hit 680, the rate at which things have been going.

Relax, chill for sometime and then focus on your applications, make them so strong that you make your way into the school you want to go.

Congrats!!!

OK, I agree that 690 is not an awesome score but it is a great score for me because that is what I was aiming for in the beginning. However, I have seen so many people with score higher than 700, which makes me want to try harder and more eager to get to that point. Anyway, I learned my lesson in the first try. I know GMAT is only for MBA admission. And so, there it is. I am done with my “quest.â€

qhoc, I really enjoyed reading your story. On top of your awesome GMAT score, you got a unique profile by serving your country and it is something very rewarding. I find the story with the rockets flying over your head quite funny yet scary as to the level of concentration one can have for the GMAT while one's life is at stake.

Qhoc, tell me that you already knew english before coming to America because how can you score so well on the GMAT otherwise :shock: Anyhow, I wish you all the best.

From a vietnamese buddy,

Paul

Yes, Paul. I have learned some English before I came to America. But it was very limited. I knew a little about grammar and how to ask for simple questions (less than 15 words). I have never successfully read a book in English (even for kids) at that time. My language in the beginning was very slow because I have to do all the translation in my head.

qhoc0010, I thought I was sacrificing a lot of my personal time to study for GMAT whilst working full time. Your situation of needing to study for GMAT in a country at war puts a lot of things in the right perspective for me.

Thanks for all the discussions at GMAT club and try to visit us occasionally.
With the motivation and determination that you have, I think you will go places. Best wishes!
