Great idea and thread. Don't know if it's too much to ask, but when someone has the time, it would be useful if the questions were organized by section, such as GMAT topics, Interviews, Essays...etc.

The way the GMAT Club works - members create and organize resources. If you think it would valuable (which I agree with), take the initiative and step up to the plate. Are you up to the task?

I unfortunately have limited internet right now so can't do this but - isn't this the same concept as kryzak's Knowledge Vault? Couldn't we just combine them?

Just trying to make sure we don't reinvent the wheel!
