Good Evening everyone.

Im new to the forum but it came highly recommended to me by a good friend of mine. I plan on taking the GMAT in mid-late April (ill decide within the next two weeks on a specific date). Im 28 years old with a BS in IE. I honestly havent studied or done this kind of work since undergrad but my goal is to get greater than 720 on the GMAT.

I took a practice exam a few months ago without doing any studying from Manhattan GMAT and I got a Q35/V34, with a projected score of 580... So i have a bit of work to do but I am confident that i can get it done with a lot of hard work.

I look forward to participating in the forum

Good day one and all...

I found this fine place through your friendly neighborhood Google search. I just decided to apply to business school to increase my skill set, and marketability. I have a degree in History/Political Science (from about 20 years ago), and I am sure I am going to need to study/knock the cobwebs off all the stuff required to do reasonably well. I am not shooting for anything spectacular, merely an above average score, which I should be more than capable of doing. Hope to get some good tips, and resources for this little adventure, and I plan on facing the exam for real sometime in the April/May timeframe.

I graduated from Vanderbilt in '11, just began preparing for the GMAT and hoping to get it out of the way. I haven't thought much about an MBA, but it seems like something that may be useful in the future.

Hi Fellow members

I am Ajay from India. I am an Electrical Engineer. I have been associated with a software firm for over three years now. I am planning to give GMAT before the format changes. I am targeting some good B-Schools here in India (ISB and SP Jain to mention a few ). I already gave GMAT once last year without any preparation whatsoever and scored 620. This time I am serious about it and I am starting my preparation from today. I gathered quite some information from the newbies threads and learnt some key points on the usage of Error logs, Notes, Timers so on and so forth.

I gave other management entrance tests for many Indian B-schools and have been trying to crack CAT(Common Admission Test) for 4 years now. I scored 87% this year which is again not upto my expectations. So I will write it for the 5th time again. The one very important lesson I learnt through these four years of preparation for entrance exams is that one should not always quantify one's result. I make a schedule, work according to it, measure my ability, if it doesn't work I will reschedule and re test until I improve. This instilled a lot of discipline into my life. So prepare to improve your quality of life. Persist with your plans. Work hard. As one of my favorite quotation goes "Hard work never goes unrewarded"

May the deserving win

Hi all, fairly new to these forums. I'm an economics major and recent graduate from the University of Rochester who is hoping to do an MBA in the next 3-5 years.

My dream schools would be: Tuck, Anderson, Haas, or Stern. Ross and Fuqua are high up there, as well. I don't know if I'll have what it takes to get into these programs due to a fairly mediocre undergraduate gpa (due primarily to health reasons), but I will certainly give it my best effort.

Hello everyone. I found this site by just looking around on the internet for other applicants of the Master of Accounting Program at UNC Chapel Hill. I graduated from Winston-Salem State University in May 2008. I was a Business Management major. I just took the the GMAT and I do not do well at all. My goal is to get at least a 620.

Hi,

I've been a lurker on here for some time now. I am an Electrical Engineer here at Minneapolis. I have a graduate degree in Electrical Engineering but am looking to shift towards consulting/strategy in future. I have given myself 2 years to build up a considerable and marketable profile. I am shooting for one of Harvard/MIT/Wharton/Kellogg/INSEAD/LBS/Booth/Ross/Fuqua/Haas/Stern (will refine it as and when I do more research on these schools). I think I will give my GMAT in the beginning of 2013 or at the end of 2012. If there's anyone else from the Twin Cities area, message me. I'd love to catch up.

Hello Everyone,

I've been lurking here for about a week and decided to introduce myself. I'm pumped on finding this website, truly has the best material all aggregated together. Such a great resource that makes studying alone a real possibility.

I'm currently finishing up my Master's in Biochemistry and I'm looking to take the GMAT in order to get into consulting/eventually get my MBA. Therefore my goal is to score around the 720 range. After taking my first practice test cold I scored 600. Most of my mistakes seemed to be on math that I simply had not seen in a while, and SC questions. I have a long way to go but have given myself about 3 months to reach my goal.

Voila! I'll hopefully be a very active member in these forums.

Hi all. I might be one of those few who wants to do a second mba. I have close to two years of banking experience in India. Prior to this I did my mba in finance from a top 10 school in India. I am an engineer by qualification. Plan to take the Gmat late this year or early next year. My Target is to get into one year accelerated mba programs like imd and insead. Will have to wait for a while till I have some more workrex under the belt. All the best to everyone.

Hello readers,

Also discovered this website via Google a couple days ago. Very impressed so far.
29yo male, Economics BSc (US) and MSc (China). I'm about to post background details in the "Ask Accepted" section of the forum so not going to dwell on that here.

I intend to matriculate in Aug/Sep 2013 and just registered to take the GMAT in a month's time, very excited about that.

My goal is to obtain a perfect score of 800, simple as that. With regard to target schools, I will narrow the choice down once my final score is known.

I wish you all the best!! (notwithstanding the implied mutual exclusiveness of such a wish's realization ;) )

Hi, I'm about to start FT in IB in NYC this May and want to take the GMAT before then. I was not a good test-taker in the past but I'm willing to work hard and smart to get a 700+ on the test. I'm looking forwards to sharing the experience with everyone.

Hello all,

My goal is to get a score between 600 and 650 (a score close to 650 would be better:)
I do not think I have sufficient time to study to score above 700.

I got 510 in my first exam. My husband and I took it the same day. We drove to another city to take the exam, stayed at a hotel that was right by the highway so could not get enough sleep at all... Not even need to say what kind of mood we were in both before and during the exam.
I took it again almost one year later. But I did not study whole year because I had many things to handle (moving to another country, working...etc). I had chance to study last two months though and said to myself ' I learned many things that I had not known before taking the GMAT for the first time so that I would be okay during the exam'. Along with my preparation, I have read many strategies of those who have already taken the GMAT. All strategies are valuable, no doubt, but not all is applicable to every types of students. For example, people say do your best in first 15-20 questions and spend more time on them relatively to get a good score. It is a good advice. However, it is not for those-which one of those is me- who are slow in answering questions.

Based on my study, I know that I am okay with questions in level 600 and above. So, what was the problem that caused me to get a REALLY bad score (even worse than the first time) for the second time I took it? It was beyond a shock to me. As soon as I saw the score I felt my face got red and said that's it, today is the end of my dream of a PhD in management. How can a person who plans to get a PhD get such low score? How could I explain it to admission committee? Would they underestimate me and my commitment? This score will be in my record sheet even though I get a good score next time.... many such questions and thoughts crossed my mind in extremely short period of time.

This was my problem: I was too slow and had many unsolved questions left as I got closer to end of the exam. So I had to guess many questions in both verbal and quantitative sections. I answered more difficult questions in second one than in first one, but my score dropped dramatically. If I have to describe my ultimate score with only a word, it would be embarrassing!

I need to be faster and faster and faster... Yesterday, my friend told me that he scored 580 and 690 with a month apart (without putting any extra effort). This exam is that interesting!

Wish you all the best.

Hello Everybody,

Been visiting this site occasionally for the past month or so and decided to take the plunge today and become a contributor. I"m 25 and work full time for the State of Michigan as a Secretary of State (DMV) Branch Manager. I will be taking the GMAT Labor Weekend. Looking to score the highest i possibly can. If I had to pick a target i would say 800 (why not reach for the sky right?) If I had to pick a realistic score i would say im shooting for 720 to 720 range. Attended Undergrad at a CAL State, graduated with a degree in Africana Studies and a 3.26 GPA. Looking forward to learning the GMAT in and out and meeting everyone in the forum.

Wow, that's a long ways away - you are 6 months out.
That's good but also make sure you don't stretch it out too much in terms of your prep. You need to watch for burn out and for ability to retain and carry that knowledge you amassed to the exam day. Refresh/Review frequently and perfect your skills.

Good Luck!

Hi. I'm 28 with a B.S. in comp sci and have been working for about 6-7 years now. I've been contemplating B-school for a while now and now that my company pays for a portion of schooling, I have no excuse not to try. I usually never post on forums, passively reading them, but the success stories written by gmatclub members encourage people to be active in these forums. I'm hoping to get into one of the part-time programs at UCLA, USC, Loyola, or UCI, which means I MUST have a strong gmat score. My target score is 700+ and I know I will need all the help I can get to achieve this score. I've taken a practice test and I scored a low 580 (Q40,V31) on it, leaving me very far from my target.

I look forward to working with everyone on here.
