Glad that you wrote the story..you can't say how many lives you can touch with a simple post :)
I took the GMAT without any plan and focus and score 600 (44,29) and I learned that there was nothing to be ashamed off.. reading your post made me think about making a plan and believing that things can improve if I want them too..so thanks for writing :)


Thank you for those words. Your appreciation made me feel that it was worth writing this post. :)

Thank you. :) AWA score doesn't matter much as such as long as one has anything above 4.0.

Congratulations archimittal. I just loved reading your debrief. Very very structured preparation and planned strategy. Even if i could instill 50% of the discipline you had, I think that I'd be way above the 700 mark :)

Congratulations for getting interview calls from Indian business schools also. That's really good given the fact that you already have an admit from UIUC with you ! :)

Hehe. Yeah, I think that will help me perform much better on the interviews as I'd not be under too much pressure!

Great debrief. I am envious of your quant skills! Good to hear that for the verbal sections it may be better to focus on other material than the MGMAT books.

Archi Mittal - first of all hats off to you. Do let us know in which IVY league Univ you landup ... I was just preparing a strategy to attack GMAT and luckily came across your post. Believe it or not, its May 6th and I am also beginning to start my 100 day preparation just like you (after getting inspired by your post) .. How I wish I end up getting the same score as you have got on that G-Day :) I will try my best to cover the IR as well in these 100 days by putting in more hours of study.

As you have said in your post, you used to put 2 hours of study per day, was that sufficient? How many hours did you put on weekends?

I have not had a chance to touch quant books from the last 8 years. I guess I need a thorough brush up to prove your point that Indians are good at quant :P Will try not to falsify your statement :P

Do please let us know about your school selection and your interviews .. Wishing you the best :)

Thanks again for this wonderful post ... It made my day !!

Congratulations archimittal on getting admits from Indian business schools as well. If only you could "lend" your 740 to someone here now, it'd be great. Kidding. Congratulations once again!

Congrats on the great achievement and for getting through Indian as well as b schools abroad. I just wish that I get a score something like yours . Screwed up the GMAT a couple of weeks back and planning to take it in the next 2 weeks so need some motivation which I got from your post. :)
