I will begin by thanking you first for starting this forum. Through this forum I understand English and Math in a different way (the way in which this blends in every day life, important in every day life), and hurts to realize I missed studying all the basics in my school days.
If I am ever recruited by a company for my GMAT (if I do well/bad), I will not accept the job. This is not attitude. GMAT should not gauge who I am or what I am. I have met many different people who are exceptional in Quant and Verbal, but miss the basic values in life.
I have had a very troubled childhood. My mother even to this day sleeps in scare. The physical abuse my mother has gone through (and still is going through) had/has affected me in a way that I never took studies seriously until I came to US.
I came to US only to save my mother. After coming here I realized how much I have missed, and now it's been 5+ years I am working hard to re-live my school days.
I am using GMAT to educate myself in English and Math basics. This is what I am getting through GMAT! I have this thirst for knowledge. When I see educated people, I am in a way jealous of them.
GMAT is a way for me to get the basics. Life has taught me lot of lessons. I don't know the meaning of "giving-up". I don't know what my score is going to be the second time.
The reason I started this discussion just to hear if anyone has a similar story like me. If anyone is using the GMAT for something more than just a score, just a means to better life......if anyone is re-living their school days in this forum or through GMAT.
I hope the best for GMATClub.http://gogreencity.blogspot.com/
