First, let me say thank you very much to everyone on the board who offers their insight. GMAT Club has been an amazing resource for me and I am very appreciative.
Initially, I was very reluctant to hire a consultant but the more I read the more I become overwhelmed. I would like to apply to the top 10 for Fall 2008. I took the GMAT in January and posted my scores on the MBA Game Plan and Accepted.com
threads. One told me to retake and the other told me there is no need. This only led to further confusion.
Based on my reading I feel that my GMAT scores, while not a grand slam, are very good. I have decided to turn my focus to other things: nailing down the schools I want to apply to, setting a timeline, seeking out recommenders, taking an accounting class, continuing to do community service, etc.
I am just looking for some direction on where to begin and how best to tackle the project of setting my school list and beginning the process. I just feel overwhelmed and could use a little guidance. Thanks.
