hi. just started posting here a few days ago.

im a 27 yo male, looking to make a career change. im currently stuck in what seems to be a dead end (non core business related support, or HR ;-)) job at a respectable financial institution, and looking for a way out!

thats where an MBA comes in. im historically a horrible underachiever (poor HS performance, which led to little known undergrad program) and the habit has snowballed into where I am today. so currently working on getting a 700+ GMAT score, hopefully to turn this ship around.

hi! i just joined today and have been looking at taking the gmat for quite some time.

i'm a 23 year old female, looking to make a career change. i graduated college with a bachelor's degree in history with two minors in english & criminology. i was very lazy in the beginning of college and quit pursuing accounting due to a million prereqs to get into the state college's program. (now you can enter the BS at acceptance to the university) i currently work as an admin and really want to start working with numbers..

i've scored pretty decently before on standardized tests & hope with a lot of hardwork i can score well enough to enter an mba program. i still avidly read and although my grammar may not be perfect (sometimes i enjoy one too many commas), i am hoping my liberal arts background will translate in to verbal success! i'm trying to get into an mba program specializing in accounting for people who are not business/accounting majors...

any suggestions or help would be much appreciated! hello all :)

Hi all
Heard about this from a colleague, it seems to be an unbelievably good resource. I have already taken the GMAT twice last year (Jan 2nd and Feb 5th), in a huge rush as I was transferring between jobs and wanted to get it over with. This strategy proved to be hugely foolish (not surprisingly), and I'm sitting on 640 both times, with my quant dropping the second time.

I have been studying more consistently this time, going over basics, buying high school math books where necessary etc. Took my first GMAC test the other day and scored a 710, definitely inflated because of some OG 12 questions, but it was a confidence booster.

Also, I had taken the Princeton Review course in New Delhi last year, and my entire batch was very disappointed. I also had bought access to Manhattan's tests & a brief 2 week subscription to Knewton tests, but am wondering if I should repurchase anything else as blind practice didn't help. If anybody would like to contact me on my experience with these Prep courses, please feel free

It would be great to connect with anybody who has advice for retakers. I have been seeing some of the older posts on this topic and they're quite fantastic.
-Ash

Hello everyone!
Mahtab from Canada :D. I came to Canada from Bangladesh when I was nine years old. Currently I am 19 (turning 20 on August).

I want to do my GMAT since I've got free time and I absolutely love the type of questions in GMAT overall (a bit nerdy, I know). I had an internship with a fortune 500 company last summer and right now I am an intern for Canadian National Railway (Canada's biggest railroad company, almost like a monopoly). I am doing my undergrad in Civil Engineering and I hope to contribute at least a fraction of what I extract from this very resourceful forum!

Hi, I'm Lauren. I currently work as an internal auditor for a mutual fund transfer agency. I would like to get my MBA with a concentration in non-profit organizations. However, I have a BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts), was not given a GPA due to the large number of Pass/Fail courses, and have not taken a math class since junior year in high school (almost 13 years ago).

Clearly, I have my work cut out for me. :lol: I am up for the challenge though! I would like to get a 650 on the GMAT. I took a GMATprep test yesterday and got a 550 (30Q 35V I think). I really need to work on all the concepts of math, but I think my goal is pretty attainable. I am also planning on taking some business-related math courses at a local community college to hopefully beef up my educational experience.

I don't know what schools I want to apply to yet. I have a lot of preparation to do before I can think about applying, but I figured joining here would be a good step towards getting the process started. Just waiting for my books to come from Amazon and I'll be ready to go!

Hi ,
My name is satish. I have a bachelors in Computer science. I have about 8 + yrs of experience in the s/w consulting business. my ideal GMAT score would be mid 700's and considering my current scores (I scored a paltry 600 on my Kaplan assessment test), I have a long way to go. I love consulting business and would like to switch to management consulting from software consulting, not that I have any experience in it, but what the heck theres gotto be a first time. My ideal schools are Berkley , Fuqua. I would like to improve upon my verbal skills. SC in particular. Good luck preparing for GMAT guys. Lets all kick some GMAT butt

Ciao


Hi smandalika,
Welcome! I noticed you are interested in management consulting. Well, from a former management consultant, I recommend you read this article on the GMAT and how it relates to a career in management consulting.

SC is the easiest to improve in the short term. Reading may take a little longer---these RC videos may help.

Enjoy!

Hey guys,

I`ve been lurking for a while. After about 3 months of studying, about to take my first (and hopefully last) shot at the GMAT on Monday, June 6th!

I`m currently in strategy/management consulting, after having spent a couple of years doing M&A at a large Brazilian industrial group. Getting my MBA has always been one of my goals - let`s see how the GMAT goes so I can start thinking a little bit more about school selection.

hi guys. i'm a undergrad senior (grad dec 2011) at a small (ranked) private university. i wasn't planning on getting a MBA degree until just recently..... totally screwed up my gpa from carelessness.. currently have a 3.2. really want to go to bu for ms/mba dual degree. i'm currently 22 and the college has said (verbatim) "the average age of students accepted into dual degree programs is higher." thus should i hold off on applying? ideally would want to go when i'm 25. when should i start studying for gmats? i'm horrible with math. went up to highschool alg2 and college statistics. thanks!
