Name changed in mba.com-Exam tomorrow-How could this happen?

This is sooo weird. My exam is tomorrow.
I just entered mba.com to see if all the information was correct.
Everything was fine.

Then I created another profile for my husband who is also planning for his mba as well.
I logged into his profile and could see his name with all my information.

then I tried logging into my profile, then it said, no such data exists....

Then I changed his email address to my email address to login, then I could login, the profile shows my information, but when I go to see the GMAT History, the test takers name is my husbands name with my GMAT ID. How could this happen?????
I know, we cannot change the name in the profile...the mba.com people need to do it...

What should I do????? Is this a glitch in the system???

Sounds like a glitch (you have gmac programmers a run for their money based in your changes) - could be an interesting loophole to change the name.

What if you create a third account and this time with your own name again?

I think the best thing is to log out. Clear cache and cookies and then log back in and check.

If still an issue, call the GMAT service center to verify the appointment info.

Hi BB,

I already created a third account with my info(with a different email id, as I had changed the email Id of my husbands one to my one) but it does not have my gmat information.
The name and address is correct, but no previous data.
My account now has my husbands name with my gmat information. When I enter mba. com it says "Hi Husbands Name" , Then when I go to the profile information section, it shows my name, when I view GMAT History, it shows my husbands name again.

The test center is closed today, due to holiday in our country...what should I do??

Hey there. So how did it go? I assume that you were allowed to take the test?

I am sure the stress did not help though...

Hi,

Yes, the data stored in their server had the correct information.
However, I mailed them last Friday, still did not receive any reply...
My account still shows my husband's name.

Btw I scored 690(Q48, V35)! though I was aiming for 720+
I may retake the exam in the upcoming months..
Lets see... Thanks for all your help.

Sam
