need for some advice [#permalink] New post 19 Mar 2013, 00:13
Hi all,

Firstly I would like to thank the people from this forum, you can find really good material and advice.

I have two questions regarding the verbal section of the GMAT and the admission in the MBA full time program in the LBS.


1) I have been preparing for the GMAT for 9 months and I take the exam twice. Both times I got 550 :? :? I am not a native speaker and the most difficult part for me is the verbal. I have been working on this part pretty hard in the last two months but I could not get higher than 25 the day of the exam. I am so tired and exhausted when this part comes during the exam that I could not digest so much amount of text..
I think that I will take the exam once more. Please could you recommended a reliable on-line course to improve this area? I also spend all my day reading a variety of articles from the economist, the browser etc...

2) Despite my low score I have continue with my plans and apply for the full-time MBA from the LBS. I think that I have a quite different profile from the rest of the applicants and "story to tell". I have almost 9 years of experience in the biotech industry. I have a PhD and a new company was set up based on my findings (8 mill were raised from private investors). I have been involved in a variety of roles from Research and Development areas to more business development roles such as project licensing and fund raising. I have several publications in books and peer review journals. I have also been granted with several scholarships and graduated with Max Cum Laudem. Moreover, I have been quite active, I have attended two events one organized in Madrid and another in London and met part of the admission comittee. Do you think I have any chance to enter despite my low GMAT score?

Many thanks guys

All the best!

Hi,

Can you tell us the books which you ahve used for preperation and which area is your weaker area?
Did you try Thursday's with Ron videos for Verbal? (you can find the link in my signature)
Also, the books which I used for my self preperation are mentioned in the below link
how-to-start-gmat-preperations-136048.html#p1199458

I ended up getting only a 31 in verbal but in practice tests I did score 36+ consistently and 1 40+ in 1 or 2 tests.
Good Luck!
