I was thinking about this for quite sometime, but was waiting for Souvik's exam only. Since he is also done with his, I would like to ask GC members in India, living in South, that can we have a union here in Chennai. Any suggestions will be highly appreciable.
Best regards and thanks,
Marcab

Hey MARCAB,

That's a great initiative. I was also thinking of meeting those in person with whom we day to day exchange ideas and knowledge pertaining to MBA and GMAT

I will also go ahead in saying that there is really a genuine need of formation of such an group/community of experienced GMAT persons who can show the right path to other GMAT aspirants of our nation.

In India, in my opinion, there is no much awareness about GMAT. Most of the room is already occupied by CAT, XAT, CMAT etc exams. Further there is no any Indian Test Prep company(except for e-GMAT) equivalent to Kaplan, Manhattan, veritas in quality and can offer its products at Indian Prices.

Think of a typical Indian GMAT Aspirant - completed education in his regional language - earning between 10000-15000/month. How can he afford huge courses offered by these Test Prep Giants. I feel it is our moral duty, being an Indian, to held the hand of that aspirant and say NO Manhattan? doesn't matter! we are with you!!

I am putting all this here in a bit emotional tone because i have seen myself struggling intensely with all this stuff with scarce resources.

Since you have made an appeal, i am sure most of our countrymen ,not only of south, will give you the support for this initiative.

+1 for this.

Pls let me know the further development of this project,

For any contact you can reach me at abhijit.7980@gmail.com or on my cell 08796556001

Thanks and Regards,

Abhijit (Alias - Narenn)
Pune.

Great idea! I would probably elaborate as to what you want to accomplish/do/cook/serve/tell, and so on.
Don't get me wrong Marcab - I would come to hang out for any reason, but not everyone may be as motivated, so would be good to know the purpose/goal/value, etc.

Hey Marcab,

That's an great initiative.
May be I can add in a bit of my thought here.

Say, lets have a meet spread over 3-4 major cities of south like Chennai, Hyderabad, or Bangalore . One major city to be covered every week !
Put up a poll to decide where the meet will be held over the coming week. So, If its Chennai this week, Hyderabad / Bangalore may be voted in next forthcoming weeks.

As bb said, perhaps having a purpose might well serve the intent of your initiative. Adding to it , in every city one or two guys who actually gave the GMAT could prepare some agenda for the meeting to address some specific needs of the test takers based on their experience. May be once we zero-in on a city for the forthcoming week, we can create an poll or open discussion to ask the major needs of the people participating in that week's meeting.

Finally , if at all we are meeting, lets stick to a coffee shop like coffee-day or Barista.

I am waiting for more inputs/changes/suggestions from you guys and others or whosoever is interested in this meets.

@bb
Glab to be back here on GMAT Club.
The sole purpose of the meet is to share thoughts not only about GMAT such as how to prepare and what material to refer, but also to discuss about post GMAT. Since I still have enough time before I apply, I shall be grateful to the members who can throw some light on how to increase the acceptance chances.
I agree that this can also be done on forums, but one to one under the banner of GMAT Club can be much more helpful-for GMAT Club and for respective members.

BB- it will be great if you can let me know how you think this would work.

@Igloo and @Narenn....kudos.
Totally agree with the concept given by Igloo.

GOOD Stuffs.
2 things:
1. would people agree to fly down to meet?
2. what are we ideally looking at?

I will be in Bombay from June and I am totally ON for something like this and I know folks who will totally dig this (jumsumtak) for example. It would be great to involve some major MBA applicant folks too to extend the diversity and ideas.

I think its a great proposition and we can move ahead but a little later. Ideally the timings are great if its in July or August. People start brainstorming about school selection, goals and ideas and it would be great for them to bounce things around and for us to just have fun.

Great idea... Although I'm not sure how willing people would be to travel long distances.. I can make myself part of any meeting in Chennai but to be honest don't think I can travel to any of the other cities...
