So as we all know, the New Year is just around the corner. I want to open a forum up to tell us about your New Years GMAT Resolutions and what you're going to do to follow through.

What are your plans, goals, and how is the New Year going to push you towards them?

Anybody with an interesting one?

Good luck with the studying!

I'm drafting up an excel workbook to track my progress. All of my goals aren't final, but I have a busy 2012.

1 - GMAT, taking it a 3rd and final time, plan is late jan early feb, but I'm not scheduling it until I am ready for sure. 680 is my high, I want to break 720, unfortunately I took a few weeks off and now I'm a bit slow on quant

2 - Wedding - Getting married in september, lots of goals leading up to that including fitness, savings, and crazy amounts of planning

3 - Applying to B-Schools, lots of goals here too, want to get a strong schedule together to visit schools and really whittle down my list to the 3 I want for round 1, and 2-3 for round 2, already registered for 2 MBA fairs in the next few months.

4 - Work - Close to getting a promotion, need to work my ass off a bit.


GMAT resolution wise, wake up at 5am every weekday, put in a good hour and a half of studying before work. When I get home, put in another 2-3 hours if possible. Try for 5 solid hours on the weekends. Don't get burnt out this time, that was a huge issue with my last attempt. try for 7 hours of sleep a night (thats right, 10pm bed time). Busy year coming up, the GMAT is only step 1

I resolve to make the best of what I have been dealt.
Change what I can.
Ignore the rest.
Things happen for a reason and that enables me to sleep well at night.

Going to give it 3 months? Is that enough? Have taken a few weeks off, hopefully that wont set me back.


i took 2 months and got 740 second time(700 first time).
I think 3 months is enough time.
Make a schedule/plan that suits your daily routine and try to stick to it.

We will most like not meet the schedule but that still helps as we can make needed adjustments.
And you really have to know your strengths and weaknesses. Keep doing the OG Verbal/gmatclub Quant collections and spend good amount of time reviewing the answers...

Good Luck!!

@highwyre237

Wow! Good luck, that sounds like a New Years Revolution! This just shows how busy the average MBA applicant really is. If you're out there, feeling stressed, studying for the GMAT, and applyinig to schools... remember, we're not alone.

Best of luck to you!

@thisiszico2006

Money for nothing sounds great! But the "Chicks for Free" part is creeping me out a little... haha

My resolutions :
1) get a 700+ score.I scored a 620 on my first attempt
2) Hit the gym to get rid of those extra lbs and get back in shape
3) Office : work harder and efficient.no more thinking of GMAT at work
4) Work on getting my iphone game ready for release (this one is a long shot)
