It has been a couple of months since I've started studying for the GMAT. I am seeing very little progress and my scores are unacceptable (low 500s). I am planning on applying to NYU Stern R1, but I don't know how realistic it is. I can't seem to concentrate and motivate myself to study. I'm sorry everyone, I'm just throwing myself a pity party and I just need to vent my frustration.
I'm so discouraged because I desperately want to do well on the GMAT, but I'm not scoring high enough.


What if I give all that I have and still come up short? I'm so afraid that my best won't be enough...

just do the best that you can do...
the GMAT is a learnable test. with enough hard work, anyone can make drastic improvements.

good luck to you.

If you do your best, it will definitely be enough.
If it isn't enough, then it isn't your best.

I am still about 1 year and a half or two years from finishing my bachelors and i am slowly looking @ the test, doing practice problems. I think given enough time and effort, anyone can get north of a 700. you just have to prepare yourself knowing that you have not left out a single detail. this - learning - takes time.
