Hey ya'll [#permalink] New post 16 Nov 2006, 10:02
Hey ya'll, my name is Marina, im 21 year old girl (half russian half korean) and i am also a recent graduate from the Westminster International University in Tashkent (major in Business Administration)...
well i actually just started my preparation for GMAT so im gonna b wit u guys for the next coupla months (that's for sure) and im planning 2 get a 7.. and up score.
My favourite quote is "Nothing is impossible" u just need to have enough faith in what u do and put enough efforts in what u want 2 achieve.
Awh, i had some work experience this summer being a trainee in one Loan brokerage company in New York and believe that i can achieve whatever.
Right now i am back in my homecountry which is Uzbekistan.
Well, hope these coming months of preparation will be of great efficiency though.
Much Luv,
Marina

Intro [#permalink] New post 01 Dec 2006, 06:41
Greetings All,

My name is Benjamin. I work in the Software Industry and have done everything from software development, to product management, to a brief entrepreneurship venture. Feel free to rip apart at my poor Sentence Correction and lack of parallelism!

I have a BS in Computer Science and a minor in Economics from the University of Virginia. I’m currently African American, at least last time I checked ;)

I have taken 18 GMAT practice tests with approximately 50% over 700. Of course the scores improved toward the end. I took the GMAT in October and scored a 680 and was pretty bummed. I got back on my feet, and decided to take the GMAT again in Singapore while here on business (today - )

I achieved my 700 club goal. 710, not bad… I was hoping for a bit higher, but hell I beat the average of most schools.

I’m applying to 2 dream schools. I only shoot high:
The University of Chicago - EMB program - Asia Campus in Singapore.
Wharton East EMB Program - Penn

Brand spanking new! Still trying to figure this thing out...

My name is Christy; I'm 26. Went to UC Berkeley undergrad and graduated with a BA in Psychology. Want to go to San Diego State University which is the better business program in the San Diego area. Took the GMAT last month and realized I was completely naive to the test. Took an 8 week GMAT prep course through USD but didn't really study otherwise. I considered "studying" to be sitting in class twice a week at USD and helping solve problems on the whiteboard. I reviewed over some math formulas about three days before the test and ended up with a 590. Talk about disappointed... and completely naive.
I have rescheduled the test for mid-February so I gotta get cracking! I'm excited about the prospect of retaking and crushing that test and I hope to be in the high 600s (but of course would love to crack 700).
Eventually I would love to do HR consulting or work in HR management; just gotta learn the business lingo.

Nice to be here!

Got a Bachelor of Science in Physics. Currently wrapping up my thesis for PhD in Physics. So, yes, I am a physicist.

I wish to switch my path to finance as many other physicists did, so I got to get this GMAT done.

Greetings all,

My name is Cem. I live in Istanbul/Turkey and work for Deloitte. I have been here for almost two years now, and I want to do my MBA to get my career shifting a bit more to the Investment Banking sector.

My undergrad is from Bilkent University, Department of Economics.

I want to study in a financially strong city, which is New York City or London.

Thus; I want to enroll to NYU, LSB, City University, Imperial College, or Fordham University.

My first two choices are NYU and LSB of course. Hopefully with a decent GMAT score, these schools might not be just dreams.

Oh, and hi!

Music Major attempting the GMAT [#permalink] New post 18 Dec 2006, 12:01
My name is Julie and I just graduated with my B.Mus.

I wrote the GMAT this morning after studying for a month and was disappointed with a low score. I am sad to say that I have just discovered this website! In any case I will be rewriting. Can anyone answer some questions for me please:

Do you have to rewrite in 31 days?

If the answer is yes- what approach do you reccomend for a quick review?

I have been using the ARCO2005 study guide which I think was a mistake. Please help!

Hi!

My name is Seni, I'm from Barcelona, Spain. I am working as a packaging engineer in the consumer good industry. I've been working all around Europe (Italy, Belgium, France, UK...) and now I am in my home town, Barcelona.

I am planning to apply to an MBA in the US next year.

I took the GMAT two weeks ago for the first time and scored 690, I am quite happy with the result but I am thinking about repeating it, not sure yet.

Thanks for the forum, is really helpful!!

Another choice [#permalink] New post 06 Jan 2007, 20:35
Hello to all of you who took the test and scored lower than you should have. Perhaps you just didn't have the right teachers. Check out the review of GMAX Online here at the GMAT Club, and see what type of teaching is offered. Then go to the website and look at the overview ("see what you're getting") and you'll understand why so many students crack the 700 ceiling with GMAX Online.
The best of luck with your studies,
Leanna

Hi all,

I am a 29 guy working in Singapore as a Research Analyst in a London-based market research firm.

Having graduated with at best an above average degree, I am planning to live and breath GMAT for the next 3-4 months and hit 750.

I know it ain't easy, but I have always aspired to work in the top consulting firms, so with my current background, only a top business school will help me achieve my ambition.

I am aiming for INSEAD.

Looking forward to meeting everybody here for the next 3-4 months.

Hi all - I should give you my background

British male, 28 years old.

Degree in Economics from Edinburgh (1st class), where I also tutored 1st and 2nd year economics for a while. GPA if worked out is a bit low through medical reasons (optional essay here we go...)

Since then I have worked in two of the Top 5 UK Banking institutions, and am currently at Associate level managing risk for a whole business area.

For my age, progress to a level above would be tricky right now, so I want to take the opportunity for an MBA to strengthen my opportunities in the future to be able to move through to MD level and above.

Introducing myself [#permalink] New post 09 Jan 2007, 12:18
Hello people

Its great to be on this site and to be able to share and learn so much from all of you.
I've been in the US for a little over 5 yrs now.
MS in computer science and working for an IT consulting firm based out of Cleveland.
My goal for the next one month is to get 750+ in the GMAT. And then Harvard...

I have been preparing for about 2 months. And will try to give it in a month.
This GMAT club has been really helpful.
Wish all of you the best in whatever you guys aim for.
And pls wish me the same :)

Hello ALL [#permalink] New post 11 Jan 2007, 14:07
Hi Everyone!

My name is Kevin M. I took the GMAT once with little prep and got 650. 67per.-Quant, 85 per.-Verb. I'm taking the GMAT again, aiming for a 750. So far, I'm using Cracking the GMAT by P/R, GMAT 800 by Kaplan, and about to buy the OG11.

I'm a college Senior at CSUN. Interned with Ernst & Young, Warner Brothers, and have had a part time job at an accounting firm since early 2005 to pay for school. I have a 3.7 GPA cum, and Accounting.

I'm appying to HBS in rd. 3 because they waive the app. fee. What do you guys think? (assuming 700+ score acheived)
