Hi bb,

I am actually based in Buffalo and commute to Rochester a few times a week for classes. It's a bit draining mainly because I have to leave immediately after work to attend class, but it'll all be worth it in the end! The commute is only an hour though so its not too bad.

And will do!

Hi all,
Guess this will be my new hangout place for the coming 1 or 2 years at least. I'm from Malaysia, working in a software consulting firm. Hoping to take the GMAT middle of next month, but from the looks of my progress, my chances don't look so well. Either way I'll still be trying, what's the worst that could happen anyway, other than failing?

It's nice for once to see lots of like minded people, being surrounded by people who tells me I'm crazy on a day to day basis doesn't seem to do much good for your morale.

Regards,
Calvin

My name is Lars.
I am from Germany but live in Hong Kong. I will try to get a 650 - 680 ++ score, since this will get me into the university of my dreams in Switzerland. I have quite a few difficulties with the American style Q questions... but I am working hard!

Hey all!

Name's Ofer from Israel. I kind of randomly decided to go for the whole GMAT+MBA thing, finishing my law degree soon and planning on taking the GMAT next month. Work experience might be a problem but in Israel it's common to get experience in the military prior to the bachelor's, so we'll see.

Definitely going for mid+ 700's, so far I've found this site extremely helpful, does anyone have a helpful take on whether it's necessary to get the OG or other books when I'm already scoring 700+ but having trouble with some of Bunnuel's horrifying Q problems??

Hi,
I very glad that I found such an active forum for GMAT and B-School. I am from Canada and currently working in Oil and Gas for one of the supermajors. I completed my undergrad in mechanical engineering about 2 years ago and have been working ever since. I plan to take the GMAT in May 2012 (before the switch) and score in mid 700's. Although my GPA is weak for top 10 b-schools (3.2); with a strong GMAT score and strong experience I hope to be able to get accepted into one.

I just starting my perp for the GMAT, so wish me luck :)

Hey my name is Tony. I am currently a Political Science Major at Mansfield University, A small state University in Pennsylvania. I plan on transferring to a different college after this semester, and Majoring in Marketing or Finance. I have an incredibly strong interest in business and I believe that business school would be the best approach in making myself successful for the future, and it would provide a good foundation for my various interest. If you would like to get to know me better, add me on Facebook (Message me for my link) or feel free to message me on here. I am a sophomore right now, but I feel as though that business school is my calling. When I started reading about all the different options that are available to you upon completing business school and earning an MBA, it captivated me and made my desire for business even more entwined in my life. I would be honored to get to know each and every one of you, and if you have a similar background, please message me so I can get to know you a little better!

Thank you so much,
-Tony

Hey guys,

Well, I've been a lurker on this site for about the past 3-4 months, so maybe it's time that I introduce myself. ^.^ I'm 24, currently working in an investment firm, and am hoping to take the GMAT in mid-March. I originally was going to take it in February, but after taking my 2nd MGMAT CAT this weekend, I'm going to push it off a little longer. I scored a 540, which isn't TERRIBLE (got a 420 on my first go-around), but just like everyone else, I am looking to join the 700+ club as my goal is to get into University of Texas at Austin's Masters of Accounting program.

I've been doing a lot of MGMAT Prep (I bought the entire set), which seems to be working well for me. I think the reason I started off SO low was because I hadn't TOUCHED math since high school, so I needed time to refresh and gain my momentum back. Anyway, I'll probably continue lurking until after I take the exam, and I will definitely let everyone know how it goes. In the meantime, any other advice would be welcome!!

Good luck to everyone!

Hello everyone,

I'm new to the GMAT Club and found the site about a week ago. I'm 24, a recent Marketing/Management undergraduate (minor in Int'l Bus) living abroad in South Korea. I have been browsing through recently, found some very helpful posts on where to get started, what not to do, what fiction books would be best to read, etc.

My goal is to take the GMAT before I leave Korea in June, and not take the new version coming out. I would like to score a 700. Since I don't have a time constraint, and don't have any other real commitments outside of work, I am willing to put in the time and effort to make this happen.

Also, prep books I have ordered include:
The PowerScore GMAT Critical Reasoning Bible: A Comprehensive System for Attacking the GMAT Critical Reasoning QuestionsKaplan GMAT 2012 Premier with CD-ROM
The Official Guide for GMAT Review, 12th Edition
The Official Guide for GMAT Verbal Review, 2nd Edition
The Official Guide for GMAT Quantitative Review, 2nd Edition
Manhattan GMAT Set of 8 Strategy Guides, Fourth Edition

I plan to take the GMATPrep to found out where I rank right now this weekend and start building my study plan from there.

Thank you to everyone who has made this website such a great resource. Your hard work is much appreciated.

Good Day!

I have been sniffing around here for the past months from time to time and just just took the GMAT on sunday with insufficient prep time.

Reschulded for May to achieve >700.

The dream is one-year MBA at Kellogg. Emory and Notre Dame also have interesting accelerated options.

Background is BA International Management. 27 at matriculation. 6 years with one of the oil supermajors. Quiet international (5 languages) with a semester abroad, volunteering, foreign placement, high school scholar exchange...

Nice to make the step from reader to writer - all the best for you guys.
Ben
