Hello All,

I recently joined this forum. I intend to apply again (re-applicant) to the Indian School of Business in this admission cycle. A weak GMAT score probably hurt me the last time so with renewed vigour I intend to score well this time around. :roll:

This site has some really good resources and I have found it to be really helpful so far! This wraps up my intro!

Thanks,

Hi,

My background consists of 5 years in the US military followed by 5 years in the DDC and SaaS sales and engineering industry. I have had a diverse set of experiences in my life and I believe that will lend itself to being a competitive advantage on my applications. I am targeting Kelly School of Business for the Spring 2013 start. I had considered the MBA@UNC program but it was around 98k where as I can leave the Kelly school of business owing around 12k after my GI bill and company tuition reimbursement. My target score based on the feedback here and the Kelly website needs to be around 680-700. I have yet to take the GMAT and I have yet to take a practice exam so I am unsure how close/far I am from my target.

Hello,

I am new to this group and I have encountered a gmat dilemma. I had already given my gmat in February and scored 590. Plus, I did a blunder of choosing the program of EMBA when I had my chance of entering the five colleges of my choice instead of full time MBA. Now I am planning to give GMAT again., but I am a little bit confused as to whether I should go for the previous score or give the GMAT again? Will I be able to get good universities for 590? Please reply soon...

Sonsid,

For me the quant is the part of the exam I seem to be struggling with. I would ask what your nationality is? It seems from your writing style that English is not your primary language. If that is the case I would also ask what your verbal score was. From the "lurking' I have done on these forums I have seen the reoccurring theme that improving your verbal score has a substantial impact on your total GMAT score.

I hope these observations are helpful. I would also ask what you are doing from a planning perspective.

My name is Zeel and I am a student of Engineering. I want to do an MS in General Management which is why I have taken a date on the 21st of August to give my GMAT. I am hoping to score a 750. I don't have any real wrok experience and although it is not a criteria for an MS program it definitely gives you an edge. Since I don't have that I really need to focus on getting a really good GMAT score. I have very little time to prepare now and I don't really know if I am doing enough. I have solved completely the 11th OG and found it pretty solvable. Now that the 13th OG is available I am wondering if I should buy that as well? I am also reading the Manhattan GMAT SC Strategy Guide and I am finding it really helpful. I plan to solve the Kaplan800 as well and give the 6 MGMAT tests. Is there anything else that I am missing that I really should do?

Hi All,
My name is Ajay and I am currently working as a software preofessional in Pune, India.
I plan to take the GMAT on Sep 1 and preparing for the same since the last two months.
I have another month to go and I'm worried and excited at the same time!

About myself, I am a Telecommunication Engineer and have been working for the last 2 years.
My hobbies include playing the guitar and long distance running apart from reading and playing half a dozen other sports!

I aim to score around 730 atleast on the GMAT but am currently VERY VERY far from it.
I've done a couple of mock tests from Manhattan and realized that I really need to pull up my socks in the verbal section.

I find SC the most challenging followed by CR and RC.

The current resources I use are the OG (12th Ed) and the Manhattan SC book.

Thanks and hoping to have a fruitful last month of studies!

Hi ajay, welcome aboard!! :)

As you will be appearing in the test within next one month, I would suggest that you should emphasise on taking as many CATs as you can. "Concept building and follow up tests" strategy would not work, you would have to learn the pattern recognition strategy and apply that on all the CATs you take in next 30 days.

Best of luck & keep us posted!!! :)

Hi All,

My intention of joining this forum is to get expert advise from the experienced lot here as I have taken the GMAT twice, last month and three years back...with disappointing scores! What was most shocking for me was a dismal performance last month, after having prepared for over three months!

Self Analysis: I screwed up both the sections, yet, I am somehow confident on Verbal. With Quant, I have some doubts, and mainly its the lack of being in top form, as I have done well in high school maths, so my basics are not that bad. I am from an engineering background and over 6 years of working experience now.

I would want to take the exam yet again within one month's time and would want to see myself getting not less than 48 in Quant and 38 in verbal!

Honestly, after last month's debacle, i am totally clueless on figuring out what went wrong...my last two GMAT Prep (with IR) had 720 and 710 scores, with 40 in verbal once - no repeated questions from OG or practice!

I am heavily disappointed by my past performances!

Help!

Hi guys,

I am a student from Austria (no kangaroos) and took myself 3 months for completing my bachelors thesis + preparing for GMAT - then i will work before my master studies. A friend recommended GMATclub... read a study plan and some stuff, looks pretty nice to get an overview.

Let's do it! Best regards

Hello everyone,

I am a Geotechnical (Civil) engineer, with about 6 years of work experience. I completed by undergrad from IIT, India and Masters from Virginia Tech, both in Civil Engineering. I am interested in relocating to Asia – Pacific and my top choice right now is INSEAD, Singapore followed by Indian School of Business. My target score is 750, but truthfully, I will be satisfied enough with 700-740 to not go for a retake.

This forum has helped me tremendously only within a month of my being active. I was very poor in Combinatorics and Probability, but was surprised at how much I improved just by going through the discussions.

Currently I am at 690 (Q 47 V 38), my diagnostic GMATPrep score. I was short on time in each and every section, including AWA and IR :D. My weak areas are SC, CR and inequalities. I also hope to improve my time management skills.

Good luck to everyone.

I would start first.

I have BS in computer science&engineering and am in IT field working in sillicon valley(san jose,ca) past 10 yrs.My goal is to make it to the top biz schools ,Stanford would be my first preferrence.I want to become a techie entrepreneur and an MBA from Stanford would help realize my dream.

My traget score is mid-700's.

How far am I from it? Currently very far away.My strong area is math and weak area is verbal RC. Just started my preperation last week but I believe in my analytical skills and was excellent at math during my school/college days,got good foundation on english grammer from my school days.Coupling this with hardwork, I strongly believe I can make it happen.



it's cool to see you here. Your GMAT goal is ambitious and I believe you can do it.

I am currently working on GMAT too, and my goal is 700+:) I am still not close to it, my weak part is math and I am doing all I can to improve it. Judging by your name, may I ask are you thinking about Standford? If you do, I am thinking that direction too. haha.

By the way, I am siwen, from China, and I am working for EMC.(a storage solution provider based in US.)

Hi all,

I did my Bachelor of Finance degree from the Australian National University. I graduated last year and have been working in a consulting firm. I have been prepping for GMAT on and off for quite a few months and I finally scheduled the test on Sep 2. Getting nervous as I only have some 20 days left. I finished the 8 manhattan guides but then took a break from my GMAT prep. Started brushing up on the material yesterday. I am aiming for 700+ but not feeling very confident at the moment. To get into my top choice I would ideally need a 740. Although I've always been good in maths, I find that in GMAT I am doing better in verbal than in quant. So I am just planning to be as thorough as I can...wish me luck!
