Hey... I just had this funny idea! You all must be familiar with the Chicken Soup for the Soul series right?

For those who don't know, Chicken Soup for the Soul is a series of books containing a collection of inspiring true life stories targeted at a specific category of people e.g. Chicken Soup for the Mother's Soul, Chicken Soup for the Teenager's Soul etc.

I'm thinking - why not create a collection of inspiring stories about people who took the GMAT!? Can be stories about their struggles, their sorrows, their motivation, their inspiration etc! It will be a one stop inspiration to all the future GMATers!

This place has plenty of people who have crossed many hurdles to reach their Target scores! So why not use this thread as a place to compile such stories and later convert it into an e-book!?

Think of it as an expanded version of the "Best GMAT Storie - Period" thread!

By the way, I think that's how the GMAT Club Grammar Book evolved - from a thread to an e-book!

What do you think of this? I have a lot of time at hand and I'm willing to dedicate myself to compile inspirational GMAT Stories!

\m/

:cheers:

Hmmm interesting concept actually. You could also include stories across all major demographics that we see in GC. This will ensure that a majority of the posters will identify themselves on both the levels - demographics and GMAT preparation.

Go for it!

We can compile the best collection from the GMAT experience section and share it in a pdf file maybe.
