It is time to check my GMAT skills. I have mixed feelings.... I need >=750 to submit to HBS. My Prep ranges from 700 to 780. So my chance is fifty/fifty. As in funny story:

Researchers asked people, what is probability for meeting a dinosaur on the street?
a man: I guess 1/10000000000
a woman: fifty-fifty.
Researches: How is it possible?
the woman: I whether will meet with it or will not....

I'm in the same boat.

another researcher: possible, based on your rock!

Good luck buddy - remember stay calm - like a monk. Key is to concentrate, not get nervous and not make silly mistakes. You've got the quant covered, make sure you ace it and hit the 51.

walker, good luck, you can do it. For math, there is no reason why you can't hit that 51. A few silly mistakes though and you will get a 50 so concentrate and always think about your answer and the question before you hit the next button.
