Hi All,

I gave GMAT yesterday and finally got the score I wanted...740 (Q50 V39).!!! Was really happy to see it as I wasn't expecting a score like this. I rushed through my last 15 questions in verbal in 16 min. Also, I think I could not submit the answer of the final verbal question. On last 7-8 questions, I feel that either I guessed some of these questions right OR a majority of those questions were experimental so didn't count towards final score OR I really did well in my first 27 questions. Considering all this, overall, pretty pleased with my score

Few more details:
i) First attempt (2010): 620 (Q49 V26)
ii) Second attempt (Sept 3rd week, 2012): 680 (Q50 V29)
iii) Third attempt (Dec 1st week, 2012): 740 (Q50 V39)

BE (2004): From arguably best NIT of the country
Working in an Indian IT MNC for past 8 + years (No company change in entire career)
Spent 4 yrs at onsite includes strong experience of working in all BRIC economies except Russia.
Received multiple awards at office.

Courses: Wish to go for <=15 months MBA ( INSEAD, LBS, ISB). Will opt for a 2 yr MBA only if I get through any of the best ones such as Wharton, Harvard, etc which I think is a far fetched dream.

Plan: Want to move to business/strategy consulting.

Any suggestions on the courses I should opt for at this stage of my career...??!!
