I came to know this forum thru Google and in no time kind of got addicted to it. I see members posting questions, posting answers,explanations, overall helping one other acheiving their dream score.

I also felt knowing bit more (like background,goals) about the members whom I will be seeing everyday in the forum for next 2-3 months,would help communicate better,would help helping one another better.I am sure many members would agree with me and think the same.

So, why not start introducing ourselves?

Please post your background,schools you are hoping for ,your target score and how far you are from it.

I am hoping this forum would help me acheive my goals while I try help others acheive their goals.

Good Luck!!!

I would start first.

I have BS in computer science&engineering and am in IT field working in sillicon valley(san jose,ca) past 10 yrs.My goal is to make it to the top biz schools ,Stanford would be my first preferrence.I want to become a techie entrepreneur and an MBA from Stanford would help realize my dream.

My traget score is mid-700's.

How far am I from it? Currently very far away.My strong area is math and weak area is verbal RC. Just started my preperation last week but I believe in my analytical skills and was excellent at math during my school/college days,got good foundation on english grammer from my school days.Coupling this with hardwork, I strongly believe I can make it happen.

Target GMAT :750.

Historically been a good test taker(GRE) and hopefully that translates to the GMAT. First diagnostic test on PowerPrep yielded a 700 - giving me much hope.Trying to work on a compressed schedule to keep the momentum going and tackle the GMAT in less than 2 months.

Goal Stanford! This is a great idea and thanks for the intiative!

My name is Srijay and I am in Operations Planning and Mgmt working for a Chip Manufacturing firm in San Jose for past 3 yrs. I have a BTech in Mechanical Eng from India and a MS from Berkeley. I will be applying to Berkeley and some schools ranked above Berkeley. I will change careers to consulting/strategic mgmt with focus in healthcare industry!

My target score is 7** the ** doesnt matter, I just need the "7" in front :lol:
Quants is not a problem for me. But Verbals are going wayward! Sometimes I score really good, and sometimes I mess everything up! This inconsistency is bothering me and hopefully my score will improve with practise. Planning to take the test in July!

I came to know of GMATClub thru Google. The club is excellent and high in spirit and I am indebted to some of you for clarifying my doubts. Thanks to the founders and contributers! This site is terrific ...

If you really want to improve your SC/CR, practice on this forum. As I repeated over and over to many new members, work out every problems in excruciating detail. Know why your answer is good but also take the habit of knowing why ALL other answers are wrong. I, for my part, always try to support my answer and refute all other answers. The goal here is not to get the right answer but have a discussion going on. There is no merit in getting the right answer. Discuss it with other members and share your knowledge with other members as I am sharing what I learned from this website with you.

As far as RC is concerned, I would recommend you to read books and do some fast reading too. I'm not sure about what book to recommend you but you can also practice reading business articles. Try to read it fast and understand what information they want to convey. If you can team up with a native speaker who has good english skills, great. Ask that person to help you on RC. That is what I am doing but mostly, I will be reading many passages and try to understand and keep an error log. Do that and you will certainly improve and reach your target. It's not too hard, I'm sure you can make it!

hey everyone,
I came across this forum through another forum actually.

I just graduated and I'm looking to earn a masters in international relations/economics. Then, after working for a few years, I'd like to go back for an MBA.

I've been passively preparing for the GMAT but I've started my full-fledged preparations since last month. I'll probably take the test in about 2-3 months from now, or whenever I feel comfortable/confident that I can do well.

Just a quick glance through this forum, and I can tell it's gonna help me out a lot.

I wish everyone luck on their exams!

Hello,

I'm writing the GMAT for another time, and I hope I can learn a few pointers from joining this GMAT forum.

Honestly, I was really hesitant to join this club cause, I didn't really know how on earth reading forums was gonna help me get a better score. (I did extremely horribly the first time around, and this is my last chance cause I already applied to an MBA program- U of T Rotman).


But after reading about the person who wrote the GMAT a few times and scored 700 and eventually got into Wharton, I figured why not give it a shot.


As I hope I can learn from all of you, I hope I can contribute to your experiences too^^!!!

PS: Are there any other Canadians around here, or am I the only one? =(

Mingling with the greats [#permalink] New post 26 Nov 2007, 18:13

I like the idea of mingling with the greats.

I am Jared from UT, planning on a 745 GMAT, top-15 school, and the world. I graduated in English and had every intention to do a PhD, but the ROI slowly pulled me to a more lucrative direction.

I have put together a website about me <a href="http://www.jaredmalan.com">here</a>. stop by.

Perhaps this is not the correct forum, but I am finishing up a marketing internship at a fortune 500 financial institution and preparing for the next step. I need that golden work experience, so if you have any leads, I would very much appreciate a private message.

Good day.

I have over 10 years experience in Transportation and Logistics. I have an undergrad in Political Science and Criminal Justice. My goal is to get into a part time program either at Anderson or Marshall. My target score is anything in the mid 600's.

I have yet to take any practice tests and I've been just studying off and on for the past year. I want to get this test over with and get into a program and either switch Industries or move up and on within Logistics.

I want improve my understanding of business as well as developing my leadership and general management capability.

I am aiming for a 700+ score on the GMAT ... and hope to provide input as well as learn from others on this forum.
I am recording all my planning activities on blog, which I will share with this forum once I am allowed to include links on my posts.

Look forward to working with you guys in cracking the GMAT ! :-)

Hi everyone,

I'm a 26 years old French Engineer. I've got a master of Mechanical engineering and am working since 3 years in an IT consulting firm.
I'm preparing for the Gmat since a couple of weeks, and I'll probably take the test in april (or may, it will depend on my preparation).
I target a score of 750 (to make forget my GPA...) but I still have to work a lot verbal and AWA! I feel confident in sentence correction and critical reasoning, but Reading Comprehesion seems really hard to me! I've lived 6 months in Ann Arbor, Michigan, but it was nearly 4 years ago and I haven't spoken English after that...

I'm planning to apply for MBA's in 2010, probably Berkeley, Stanford, columbia, Stern, chicago, Yale... I still have time to reduce or extend my list :)

By the way, I've discovered this forum through FaceBook :shock:

That's all!

Alex
