Yes. Earlier it used to be sent by mail. Or they do this for 800 scores, I don't know. I have always not cared about AWA. I am glad I have both the scores. I'll scan the copy when I get a chance from Kinko's and post it up here. I am not sure if that is legally right to do so?

Man you missed near perfect... 6.00 on AWA along with 800 would have been perfect..

Any one ever score a 52 in Quant????

Some more details:

Quantitative--
I found Q3 and Q7 to be relatively hard. Towards the end, I think Q38 was extremely hard. Permutations/Combinations with Series.

Verbal--
SC's were easy. CR was ok, a little harder than SC's. RC's were a breeze, only if you read it two times. Once I started answering the RC's I never had to look back at the passage. I don't believe in skimming trhough the passage or techniques like reading the first and last line of each para. Read all, absorb all of it, as if you were the passage yourself.
On the whole, I don't think any Verbal question stumped me, surprisingly enough for my verbal has been a shade lower than my Quant.

I want to lend by thanks to all well wishers on this forum. I was on of those who followed the forum closely, but hardly participated. I think this is a wonderful forum.

Remember, GMAT should not be made life, and do not focus or think about results. Results will show up anyways. Do you deed, leave rest to the almighty. As said in Bhagvad Gita: 'Do your prescribed duty, without thinking on the fruitive results.' In other words, do your 'karm'. Don't be attached to the results of it.

Folks,
I'll be going out for a few days for camping and take a breather.
Also planning next strategic moves for Stanford and Harvard. Probably will fly down to Harvard to meet the faculty and start engagement, assuming they are back from vacations.

I am sure many of you can reach 800, but somehow get bogged down or start thinking too much about your scores while doing the test. This is a big no-no.

Meanwhile, best of luck to all, nothing is impossible.

OM SHANTI to all.

I hate to sound bitter or anything, because really I'm not, but something smells fishy here and I'm not the first person to point it out.

According to the OG, talking about how the AWA is scored, "The readers who evaluate the responses are college and university faculty members from various subject matter areas, including management education. These readers read holistically ...". I'm certain that they do not treat a 200 any differently than an 800 when it comes to releasing scores. Do they have people reading as test-takers are finishing the exam now?

So, I'm going to ask again, just as others have asked in this thread, has anyone else who has taken the test recently been given their AWA score right away?

I took the gmat on July 24, and just received my AWA scores today. Of course I DIDN'T score an 800 so maybe things are different for that uber-elite group.

well... I tried... and unfortunately the closest location is in Roseville... and I just happen to live in the same area you are claiming... what I know is that Fair Oaks center belongs to ETS and since Pearson Vue administers the test now there is no way you could have taken GMAT in Fair Oaks today, yesterday or any day in 2006... unless it was GRE... you should of been more clear on this.

I'd like to believe you with all my heart and be happy that someone did score 800, but this just doesn't sound right... in addition, 800 scorers are no special from others and I don't think they receive AWA on the spot... we all pay 250$for this and why would you be treated any different if anything... I bet GMAT people would wait to give you perfect score to verify that it was what you got... I can talk about some other dubious details in your post, but I think the location dilemma speaks for itself... may be it should of been your job to verify this before posting. unless you can explain this, I have doubts about your 800 score in 2006.

Ok.. that settles it!

On the side of erring, I don't believe this person, indiansoccer007! Sorry buddy, but you didn't get the perfect score...

indiansoccer007, Too bad you get your kicks by such posts...

Praetorian, you should read this post and make it an example of some poster's foolishness.

Actually, the part I most wanted to believe was where he said his test center was empty and that it was very quiet for him. That would be awesome, as I'm concerned that noise will throw me off on test day. I bought some earplugs last week, but after trying them out I really don't like they way they feel; it feels like it is echoing in my head.

I would have been willing to drive to Sacramento for an empty test center, but I guess the center in question doesn't even exist.

Oh well. I'm sitting for the test on Wednesday, so I won't have to wait long to verify how AWA scores are handed out.

Agree with you guys (haas, u2lover, dahiya .)
there are far too many loopholes --

- confusion abt prev. scores (680, 690, 720 ???)
- AWA (this is the biggest blunder)
- GMAT center
- Alone in the center while applying
- Q38 in maths (good catch, dahiya!)

Not sure why would someone do this ?

I gave test in March 2006. After the test you receive a copy of your un-offcial score without AWA. After 2 weeks you will receive a copy of your official score by the mode (Online, by mail or both) you selected at the time of scheduling the test. This is under Pearson Vue. In no way the method can be different for different test centers or high scorers.

his first post was at 5:30 am with a claim that he "just got the score"... that means he was taking it sometime b/w 1am and 4am here in Fair Oaks/Citrus Heights/Roseville... this explains no people at the test center and no AC in Sacramento???

should I add any more dubious comments from his posts? I can't believe this...

That sucks.

My reaction would be that this guy gives both Indians and soccer players a bad name, but he's probably lying about those facts as well.

Can someone veryify if people are applying to enter business school in 2007? That's probably the only thing he isn't lying about.

It's amazing what some people will do for attention. Sad actually.

From the looks of it I'd say that indiansoccer has actually never even taken the GMAT. His first "score" of 690 must have been fabricated as well. I mean if he really did take the GMAT how could be have made such monumental blunders (the immediate AWA scores, # of questions for maths, etc).
