Hello all, am targeting Langone for Fall '07 too... here's hoping we end up as classmates For me it is still a long way off: am taking the GMAT mid April. aurora73 good job on getting the GMAT over with: may I ask what your score was like?
Racoon, Welcome to the small club here. I was glad to find this place to talk to other people who are in the same boat. Hope we get more participants so we can all share information.
I took my GMAT on Monday and the score exceeded my expectation. I was only planning to get 700+, but end up with 760. Well, at least I know that it won't be the factor to blame if I can't get into the program. Good luck on your test...
Where are you all located? And which program are you interested? (weeknight, weekend)? I am planning to apply the weekend option because I am 2.5 hrs away from the school.
aurora73, that's an amazing score, congratulations! Hoping for a 700+ here, thanks for the wishes. I'm actually interested in the weeknight option, as I'm close to the school. You're probably working on your essays right now... how're they coming along? I hope to complete them in two weeks after the GMAT...
Good luck veruca912, keep us posted!
Replying to some of the older posts:
baer: re: time required for the GMAT, it depends on your target score, which may in turn depend on your profile. If you want to score well (700+), you usually need around 2-3 months. This could be cut short if you consider yourself a "star" student and have consistently performed well in standardized tests. Finally, the GMAT is only a one part of the app, so if your GMAT is really low, but the rest of your app is stellar, you stand a good chance. According to sources on the net, top biz schools (and presumably NYU) admit people with <600 GMAT. I've allotted ~2 weeks for the rest of the app (essays, recos, transcripts etc)
deep_mba: usually, you can mention the % for your final year, instead of trying to calculate the GPA. Regarding the transcripts, I'm planning to do the same: submit the sealed ones I have from 2003.
Thanks for the well wishes. I am taking my test this coming Friday. Rec's are done, I have transcript but need to do essays right after exam. I have been doing around mid-600s on the practice tests so I hope to get that up a little come test day. Doing well in verbal but having tough times with math. Anyone have any good resources for math prep with less than a week to go??
Racoon, thanks for your advice on the gpa coversion.
I gave my test yesterday - got 680. 39Q and 42V. Seem like a lot of Math brains are taking the gmat nowdays. A 39Q score was only good enough for a 58th percentile!
Hopefully that should be enough to get into the part-time since my reccos, essays and work ex are strong. Filed my application yesterday. Now I'm waiting. Let's use this forum to keep track of the admissions.
