Hi guys,

Just took GMAT and scored a mere 580. Just wanted to share the experience...the questions were tougher than the ones in GMAT Prep. I am still not sure how to get to terms with the score.

My score in MGMAT were 580,640,640,640,680,640 and in the last two GMAT Prep tests that I took scored 680 and 690. So I was expecting to score around 680-690 but all I could manage was 580. Planning to re-take the test but not sure when. I am not confident enough now to re-take the test immediately after the 31 day gap. So if I re-take the test sometime by end Feb could you please give me inputs on whether I can apply for schools for fall 2010 or will I have to wait till fall 2011?

great first attempt. approximately how long did you study for?

although your Q is low (compared to the standards that this board set for everyone ), clearly you can do better on the verbal. improving your verbal will put you into the range of scores you saw during your practice exams.

have you looked at the manhattan SC guide? or any of the manhattan guides in general? you can look through these and attempt to improve your verbal skills or you can continue to find/do more and more verbal related questions so you can become more familiar with the question format, more familiar with what they are asking you for, etc.

hope this helps.

Thanks for this.

I prepared for around a month with 2-3 hours per day. Yes I went through the Manhattan SC guide and I have to improve both my quants and verbal scores.

I am confident of scoring much better in my next attempt but could you please let me know if I would be in a good position to apply for fall 2010 based on my scores that I get in that which would be by end Feb 2010.

^ Certainly but it all depends on the school(s) you are applying to. check the deadlines for all apps. schools get gmat results much quicker now than before so you can (almost) take the exam a month or two before the deadline, apply and still be okay.

i am in a masters program now and i actually took the gre the day before the application deadline for the program. i had no issues submitting my score. the school got the official score shortly afterwards. i think the timeframe is similar for the gmat as well.

you prepared for a month, only studying 2 or 3 hours a day? wow, that's an impressive score for such a short study period. imagine how much higher your score will be if you put another month of studying in!
