I've been reading these forums for a few months now, and they've definitely helped with my decision to get an MBA and GMAT study efforts. I'm applying for the Class of 2016 but still need to narrow down my list of schools, so I've decided to stop lurking and make some posts that'll hopefully help others with their decisions.

Hi everyone! I've been on Gmat Club for a while now, but haven't really gotten involved in the community. So here goes my first post!

I'm a UVA 2013 grad, from the McIntire school of business. I'm taking the GMAT in a little less than a month, but I'm not planning to go back to get my MBA for another 2-3 years. I haven't really figured out what my target schools are yet, but I know I want to do something more creative after my MBA, so Stanford and Columbia are good bets. Target GMAT score: min 700!

Hello everyone,

I'm Thiru. I have a B.E. in Electrical Engineering, and presently working in a power plant equipment manufacturing company. I've been preparing for GMAT for four months now.

Initially I thought I was good at Verbal. But a few sectional practice tests have made me to realize that I'm not even to close to where I thought I were. So, I'm concentrating more on verbal section now and I've identified that I am weak in CR while I can manage some consistency in SC and RC.

Also, I'm very average at Quants. In the only full practice test (KaplanGMAT) I've taken so far, I scored only 58% in quant section and the overall score was 620. Not sure about Q&V score.

Presently, I'm studying everyday for about 1 hour and I'm planning to take GMAT in July 2013. I know I need to up my motivation level and preparation to achieve my target of 700+ score. And I'm not sure whether I'm on track towards achieving that.

That's it in a nutshell about me and my GMAT goals, and I hope to have a lot of fruitful interactions in this forum.

--
Cheers,
Thiru :)

I came to know this forum thru Google and in no time kind of got addicted to it. I see members posting questions, posting answers,explanations, overall helping one other acheiving their dream score.

I also felt knowing bit more (like background,goals) about the members whom I will be seeing everyday in the forum for next 2-3 months,would help communicate better,would help helping one another better.I am sure many members would agree with me and think the same.

So, why not start introducing ourselves?

Please post your background,schools you are hoping for ,your target score and how far you are from it.

I am hoping this forum would help me acheive my goals while I try help others acheive their goals.

Good Luck!!!


It's really hopeful for me. I am looking for online graduate courses and suddenly find this forum to discuss about anything like this. Please help me out anybody. I am getting some help from a online graduate courses already. But I need to discuss about it through this forum. If you guys have no problem with it.

Thanks

Greetings All,

I am new to the GMAT club but not new to the GMAT if that makes sense. I have struggled with my mistress (the GMAT) for about 6 years now. All of my friends have surpassed me and completed their post graduate studies except me and ironically I was the first one who talked about getting a post graduate degree years ago. I’ve thought about giving up on getting a master’s because I stress about the GMAT year in and year out but something keeps drawing me back in. My instructor suggested this site for support and resources. If anyone reads this post feel free to reach out to me and share your thoughts and game plans for the GMAT, I am all ears!
Best,

KG

Hi,

Like everybody here. I am also aspiring for a good gmat score. I am planning for an MS and not an MBA and opted for GMAt rather than GRE.
I am a commerce graduate with an MBA in marketing and around 3 yrs of experience in IT business development.

Preparing for GMAt has not been easy. I am not scoring very high but I am slogging my ass to secure a good score.
The threads, preparation material and expert advice here have been a great help.

We can help each other by exchanging questions , materials and strategies as no one can learn everything alone.
Looking forward to a great interaction

Cheersssss :) :)

I have been hovering around this forum for quite a while but never posted yet so I guess id rather start here.....i had joined this forum about a few months back with the hope to give gmat by March of this year, however due to the workload coupled with laziness i have pushed it to Aug'13....

Anyways something about me,
Im from India, with an engineering background , mechanical engineering , completed my engineering in 2009 from a reputed engineering college, post which i joined a leading Steel manufacturer in india and have been working there ever since, currently im heading one of their manufacturing units in southern part of india - thats a brief background about me.

That being said,
The reason im here as with most of you is to enhance my views / preparation wrt to gmat and also have a community wherein i can ask doubts questions and contribute whatever i learn through my entire experience of giving gmat.

Now with regards to gmat,
I had given one mock gmat last August , with no preparation what so ever and had scored a lowly 610 (Kaplan diag test).
the analysis of which was - my quant was good (needed more focus in DS though)....however my english was kinda pathetic, so thats my focus area, if anyone can suggest some good online tutors wrt verbal in general that would be of great help.

Finally my target gmat score is around 760+ and am working towards that, if anyone can suggest some good study material with problems in the range of 700+ level it would be great again, (I have searched around and got some material already but anything else would help).

Also my target schools are top 20 B-schools as per Financial Times list with my focus being Duke Fuqua, do give your suggestions wrt my target score , focus schools(if its farfetched or realistic) etc

Thanks, hoping to get some mentors/friends here and have fun while prepping up for my gmat... :)

Hello everyone,
I am new here and I am an Electrical Engineer but have been working as a Management Consultant for almost 3 years now. I would like to go for my MBA and am planning to write my GMAT early next year (Feb-Mar 2014 time frame). I am a novice and really don't know much. Though I have read the FAQ section and learned some new things, I would still require some suggestions regarding the study material. Please note that I have zero knowledge about GMAT and would like to give myself about 7-8 months of prep time. Please advise any books, tools, etc. that may be helpful to me.
I appreciate your time and effort to reply to me.

I have not scheduled my GMAT date although have been preparing for the last one month.by next week I will enroll for it and am planning to give it a shot in the first week of October this year.I want to ask something; I am having a work ex of 34 months..but 4 months before I had to quit due to some personal issues..will that effect my application that I am not working currently? or you people think this can be a major weakness in my application?

The point that you were not working at the time of the submission of the application will downgrade your profile. Since you have done so, try to improve your profile by either raising the Gmat score or by playing some sort of pivotal role in extracurriculars.

Give more time to verbal in GMAT and the writing./interviews in your app. in my first edition i applied to top 10 schools only and accepted CAT interviews in india so i know the GMAT is firstly to be [strong]prioritized high[/strong] and then once you have a 750= score you need to [strong]move to other areas of app that are equally/more important.[/strong]

For the GMAT , i like soft programs and try to focus on how to get the uptick to difficult questions /best scores as that is what you can do based on aptitude. If that is shooting for the moon scoot to application list and reselect programs for ave gmat well below 700 esp if you are an nternational applicant.

soft programs: i am currently using the McGrawhill book downloaded on kindle

Can it be quantified- how much points I would loose out in general in this case or to put it simply how many points do I need to score than normally so that this down-gradation can be made up..well I have not done any extra curricular in this time..was going through a family problem and was able to solve/win over it but I guess stating that won't do any good to my application..my only hope is then a good GMAT score..
