Another option is the lounge at the top of Columbus Circle. Stone Rose Lounge. It's very corporate.

I can throw out low key suggestions too.

I'm out next Friday but we should meet up whenever we feel like it. We'll do one this Friday and maybe another one the week after that. God knows I need something to lift my spirits.

My chances are better for next Friday 3/12 too, not sure if I can make it this week - but I'll try. 'Specially if it's on the earlier side.

I'm interested - 3/12 sounds great. Is this GMAT club only, or are we allowed to bring other friends who are in the application process as well?

Sounds good. I have nothing interesting to talk about right now anyway. Just waiting, and the pain of rejection.

We can bring other people too. I think we should just have one both weeks. It's ok if only a few people come to either one.

We should just do it every Friday from here on out.

It will give me something to look forward to.

Thanks... I have a 2.5 GPA.... It can ruin even the best of GMAT scores.

I'll wear something with a big question-mark on it. That's how you'll know I'm an Aenigma.

I can wear a Mets hat. That's probably too easy.

Let me give you guys some advice so you guys don't have to go through the embarrassment that I had to go through... :oops:

Last year, we (NYC crew) had happy hour about every 6 weeks, from Dec 2008 and forward. I met some great people like fatb, Solaris1, Jerz, Terp26, 3underscore, etc.

Now, I suggest that you guys don't pick a too fancy of a place for happy hour. I remember when we went to the bar on the roof of the Library Hotel....we ended up paying like $10-$12 for a bottle of Corona's.... Men, I used to earn a nice paycheck back then but still, who pays that much for beer?

Secondly, make sure you guys have a way to identify each other. When the group and I met for the first time in Dec 2008, I walked straight past all of them (they - about 10 individuals - were by the bartender and the bar was nearly empty and yet, I still missed them somehow) and almost walked out thinking no one came to the event.

Thirdly, when Raabend came to town and we held the happy hour, we had no idea what Raabend looked like so I ended up going up to random dudes in the bar and asked them something like, "Hey, how ya doing?" Let's just say that it was embarrassing and I got odd stares........

Lesson from all this? Plan properly.

Thanks, nink. Good pointers to know ahead of time.

Also, I second this:

I realize I'm probably in the significant minority here but as a non-profit applicant I wouldn't mind a place where a drink costs less than my hourly wage. :shock:

As far as identification goes, we could try to all wear a similar color or something... and seem even more cultish than we already are... or maybe someone who's committed to being present (and early) can be the one wearing something distinctive and we'll all gather around him.

Either way, I'm partial to argyle.

I have one suggestion.

It's better if you reserve a table under 'GMATClub' and keep the lobby manager informed. Whoever arrives can go straight to that table.

Great idea. Just drop "GMATClub" from the reservation name. Do not mention the words "GMAT" or "Club" in the bar. Come up with another name for this group thingy.

You will find out that those words, "GMAT" or "Club" (especially) do not work so well at a NYC bar. You will either be laughed at or say what my fiancee told me, "GMATClub? What in the? You are such a geek...."
