GMAT Club Profile Tour
Welcome to the NEW GMAT Club Profile
We have spent a long time perfecting it and it is finally ready for the release! Visit Your Profile
You will be greeted by the preview of your public profile - that's how others see you online. Does yours look skimpy compared to mine? I will show you how to beef it up in just a few mins. Want to see a bigger picture? Click on the image to enlarge.

Your MBA Applicant Profile
This area allows you to add schools and fill out your applicant info such as GMAT score, GPA, age, etc. I highly recommend filling it out. Why? Because it will help you on the site!
- It will help you keep track of other users who are applying to the same school. Also, the Real Time updates on the Forum Index Page will be customized for you.
- Your Events Bar will provide you with deadlines related to your school.
- You will be able to see other applicant stats.
- If you are concerned about privacy, you can always turn all data off (but it will still be used in aggregate to help us figure out the big trends).
It is very easy to use, just click Add a School

Privacy Controls - Yes Can Do It!
Everything can be hidden in your profile.... well, except the username that is

Chances are, you probably got a Welcome PM from me. Well, now the PM system is much more intuitive, and user-friendly. It allows you to preview your messages, mark them as important, and allows sorting - click any of the headers and you can sort your messages by date, author (did the same guy bug you before?), subject, etc. I highly recommend that you give it a whirl - you wont' be disappointed. The system does everything except smudge your PM's - that's my touch to keep all those private secret PM's... well... secret.

These are Your Posts and now you can find all those pesky questions you have asked in one place - you can revisit the threads to see the replies, to see which posts you got Kudos for (perhaps you should make more of those) and finally search - you can search just within your posts (forgot where you posted one of those gems? I do that all the time and with 10,000 posts it is not easy to find)

Workspace | Bookmarks | Workbook | Workbook Stats | Notes | Subscriptions
Very powerful section - you should be spending a lot of time here.
- Bookmarks - there is a bookmark link below every post - use it. There is also a shortcut to the bookmarks at the top of every thread - use it too. Bookmarks allow you to see not only the topics but also if those topics have had activity since your last visit
- Workbook & Stats - your timer results are saved here. If you participate in the Quant or Verbal Forums, you probably have seen or used the timer. All of your results are logged and analyzed here
- Notes - if you need to jot down something real quick - this is the place. You can save links, notes, ideas, etc. Keep all of your GMAT/MBA stuff in one place
- Subscriptions - did you know that you can subscribe to forums? Yes, if someone posts a new topic in the forum, we will notify you. Just search for "subscribe forum" next time you visit one. Your subscriptions will be reflected here.

Are you interested in seeing posts from certain users? Perhaps regardless to the topics they address, every post is golden? In that case, the Follow Feed does exactly that - you can read all the posts from your favorite users/experts/jokers/dictators/etc

These precious points are worth something - did you know that 25 Kudos can get you a free subscription to the GMAT Club Tests
for 3 months? Yep! Did you know that you can also be featured in our weekly newsletter if your post gets 5+ Kudos? Yep! Did you know that if you give Kudos, your balance does not change? Yep - you should be generous with those who put the effort in and those who provide great posts.
