Hi jabs,
really sorry to hear that...but i am also sorry to read your last statement....

dont know whether I should dream at all of making it anywhere!!!

I know you must have expected a lot and now that you have not reached those expectations, you are dejected. But don't stop dreaming and hoping. Those dreams are what keep us alive. You are better off than so many hundreds of thousands of people who don't have dreams. Just keep trying, keep hoping.....you will reach your goal one day...

BB,Storewala and the rest ,,

havent heard from all of you on this one,
should I attempt it the 4th time?.Frankly I want to I dont think that I have ever been such a lousy loser and am still highly motivated. Have been reading perseverance quotes by Einstein and Edison if that helps....

Your valuable views on the time frames I should keep in mind while attempting will help.....

jabs

How much time between the tests do you have?
I mean when did you take the second time?

P.S. sorry - it takes me a while nowadays - but with a free site, you get what you pay for Just kidding you.

Keep trying jabs! If you really want it, you'll get it. Have you read books? bb read lots of English and American literature to make it. When you read lots it sort of trains your unconsious brain... And it's much more pleasant than to do verbal excercises

hello guys. I just came back to share something like lot of you folks did and that worked for me. jabs, comeon man, how it is possible that a person like you is loosing your heart over this stupid test. You just didnt clicked. I was in the same position. But now I have been accepted in a university which is ranked 55-60th by usnews and i had almost the same score. My essay and then subsequent letter to the director were the main source for their evaluation because the score i got. i was not expecting to get to even the stupid reasonable colleges. This university (i am deliberately not mentioning the name at this point in time) is well know for it education and sprots and you know the ranking. So, dont get dishearted. 580 is a reasonable score, try to focus your on your essays. and try these univ
univ. of georgia, u washington, u florida, u oregon. They are good colleges and not very expensive like the top ones and they are in the ranking too. small towns, low fee and cohort small programs which are well known in the region. good essays with the same 580 might get you somewhere. dont go for tier 1, unless you are only planning to attend them, and have available resources.
if the later is the case, ask BB for his email and he is helpful, he was atleast with me.
Thanks BB, i got admission, i will let you know through email.syed

Just about every M.B.A. program, whether a top-20 or not, is regional. Proof? Turn to the placement section of the web sites of the programs you’re considering. Most of the companies recruiting at those business schools are headquartered in or near that region of the country.

Choose an M.B.A. program where you’d like to live and work after you’ve finished your degree. You’re likely to stay around there for at least the first several years of your post-M.B.A. life.
