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 ;) )

Hello, I found the website online. I am planning to take the GMAT in 3 months before the new version comes out (Jun 5th). Any motivation is always welcome. :)

Good luck in your study!!

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.

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.

Greetings. I'm 28 with a BS in Industrial Engineering from Georgia Tech. I've been in the workforce for a Fortune 50 company for a little over 4 years now. I've always been good at school (mostly math) but I have always HATED school. Because of this, I never planned on getting another degree.

I make pretty good money at my job but I have a burning desire to graduate from a "worker" and enter management. For this to happen for me, I'd have to get the right job or do a very stressful team leader job for 3 years and hope to get into management.

This is what is fueling my newfound desire to enter business school. My company pays for it part-time with schools in the area, but I think I want to go full time. ESPECIALLY if I can get a full ride.

At this point, I have no idea what particular school I want to go to or what I want to specialize in. Nor do I have an application timeline. My goal is to get over a 700 and assess my options from there.

I look forward to getting to know the members on this forum. Right now I'm just reading FAQ's and debriefs. It's all so much to take in.

I took a Kaplan CAT a month ago and got a 580. I know i can score a lot higher because I literally had no idea what I was getting into when taking the test. Thanks for reading this long winded introduction. LOL

Hello
My name is Crystal I'm 28, graduated from NCCU with a Bach in Business Marketing in 2005, I've been working up until the beginning of this year. I couldn't really find anything that made me happy I had a internship at the local paper here in Raleigh NC in Display advertising. I believe I have a passion for consulting within small businesses. I believe they are the way of the world, at some point i think the economy will get back to that. I have only had 2 jobs since college one working for BCBSNC as a CS rep and then another working for a local med mal firm in operations. Neither made me happy at all...I felt all my potential sink. Now Im craming to take the GMAT before the application deadline of April 18 for NCSTATE. Another for Meredith is sometime in June so if I need to retake it I will. Maybe its me but I haven't found it to be all that difficult when I actually take the time to understand each section. I suck at math so I think that would be the most difficult. Any suggestions and advice would be great. I'm currently working on my essays now. I really would love to go to NCSU my other choices are Duke and UNC but there deadlines had passed before I actually had the time to get everything put together.

Thank you!

Hi,

I am 28 with an MBA in Marketing and Sales from One of the top B schools in India. Prior to that i did my BE in Electronics and Communications.

I am presently employed with Pepsico India in a territory manager position.
I am considering July-2013 as a date to join a MBA class of INSEAD or LBS by that time i will have a 5 yr WE post MBA.

I am one of the founding members of an NGO in my city and also participate in social service activities in my free time. I am also a member for fund raising committee for an old age home.

I have no international experience whatsoever but my desire is to work in the field of International strategy and management after graduating from INSEAD.

I am targeting a 700+ score in my GMAT.
Will INSEAD consider my profile?

I am presently starting with brushing my skills up for quants and verbal and planning to give GMAT 4 months from now.

I have heard great things about the club from my friends and i am looking forward to work with everyone in this forum.
