Everyone, today I am writing to share my gmat experience. I took that boring exam 5 times in 7 months. My story goes as follow.

GMAT 1 : 440 (OCT 2004)

GMAT 2 : 440 (DEC 2004)

GMAT 3: 500 (JAN 2005)

GMAT 4: 530 (APR 2005)

GMAT 5: 530 ( MAY 2004)

GMAT 6: Petiotion denied by ETS (MAY 2004)

I applied to only one school. The average stats for that school are:

GMAT: 610 GPA: 3.3 Work Experience : 6 years.

MY STATS:

GMAT: 530 GPA : 2.8 WORK EXPERIENCE : NIL

I was ashamed of these scores. So, I never told even my immediate family my original scores.

WIth the low scores such as those, there was no chance I was going to be accepted. BUT I never gave up. I took GMAT again and again and kept bugging the admission officer again and again by going to her office. LAST WEEK I was admitted into the program.

I am so happy. Last week I was diagnosed with Adult attention Deficit Disorder too. :-D . Only my dreams made me take that boring exam again and again. I just hated gmat, and had always click through the RC passeges whereever they appeared.


"Persistence" is the key. Never give up. That admission dicision came as a shock for me. If I was not going to be admitted , I would have applied in Fall again and would have been ready to begin GMAT testing starting October.

Congratulation crosscountry. You just proved that scores are only part of the application. Indeed, the famous quote "I have a dream" does apply to you. Thank you for sharing your dream and all the best in your future!
