Help! Am I on track for 700+ GMAT score? (Knewton User) [#permalink] New post 21 Feb 2010, 10:36
Hi All,

I joined Knewton about a month ago and took their diagnostic GMAT test. My score was a pretty awful 480 (Q25, V31). I have now been trying to juggle work and study for the past month (putting in about 2 hours a day during the week, and c.6 hours per day on the weekend), and attending all Knewton classes. I too their 1st practice GMAT test and came out with a score of 560 (Q35, 44% ; V34, 72%). I found the questions quite a bit harder than any of the practice problems from the OG and the Knewton classes, which caught me a little off guard, and I had to guess around 8 of the questions in the Quant section (of which I guessed 50% correctly). I have exactly 1 month to go until my official GMAT, and I just wanted anyone's opinion as to whether I am on track for a 700+ GMAT score. I do plan to ramp up the studying in the 2 weeks prior to the exam (taking 2 weeks off work), so should be able to get 8-10 hours in per day.

Am I being realistic here? The reason I am targeting this score is that I am applying in the 3rd round for Stanford or Harvard, and I think anything under 700 will essentially rule me out of the picture from the out-set.

ANY views or suggestions most gratefully received.

Thanks :-D

If you look through Sandy's thread on BW Forums he basically says no one gets into H/S round 3 so unless your last name is bush or obama the score might not be the thing holding you back.

Not to discourage you but from my experience, an improvement from 560 to 700+ within a month is hard to achieve although not impossible. It would be especially challenging if you can't commit to it full time. Proper planning and practice are key. Unfortunately, at this point, the odds are not in your favor - both in making the score and in getting 3rd round admittance to the schools you're targeting. Do the best you can to increase your odds. Good Luck.
