Congratulations Perseverance! Did you start any b school specific stuff?
Thanks mbalady! I actually just started the 'research' phase. I'm happy I finished the important GMAT step. I have plenty of time to research and visit schools before I start the essays etc. What step in the process are you at?
Back in Dec I got a 680 GMAT with a low quant score (44) so I am in the starting to re-study phase lol (its been hard to get motivated to be honest). However I have done some research and have a short list of schools that I am targeting, have started to reach out to students and alumni, and have some visits scheduled for March and am planning a couple more for April so I am a bit into the research stage concurrently as well. I do need to focus more on the GMAT though. I def. wish you all the best through out the rest of this 'journey' we are embarking on
Hey all, just wanted to get on the Fall 2011 applicant lists.
planning to retake the GMAT after i got 690 (back in 2007) just got over with an unsuccessful attempt for Fall 2010 admissions after not getting a single IV call from 3 schools i applied to.
Anyone in the same position as i am in.
Planning to retake the GMAT in March end. averaging 710 on my practice test scores(Manhattan,GMAT prep, Kaplan) targeting a 750. Need to up my verbal score which is averaging between 37-39 to hit 750. Quant im comfortable averaging 50-51..
I just took the gmat and didnt fare at all ...and am gunning for the May schedule. My basic areas of weakness are quant, since I didnt study maths after class 10th. My conceptual understanding itself is weak as a result I dont know how to interpret the quant questions.
my gmat score during prep 600, 34 q, 38 verbal my real gmat score 500, 25 q, 34 verbal
Any tips on how should I restrategise for the coming months.
well when I posted that approach, the approach was really meant to internalized the concepts MGMAT teaches and there I felt that of course if you do the OG problems right after you learned the concept you will know how to apply it and (hopefully) get the answers correct. However, the key thing IMO is that you have to really internalize the strategies, so I suggested two things: a) Learn the strategies and learn them early on b) Practice them with Kaplan material or the like and then at the end come back to the official questions and make sure that you can tackle those with the strategies you have learned.
This approach is irrespective of the question difficulty level and your target score.
With respect to your concerns over the difficulty of the OG questions and other prep material compared to the real GMAT, I mean go through this forum here and you will see that some feel one way and some feel another way. To me, OG questions (just like GMATprep) is material that comes from official retired GMAT question pools and as such I feel this is as close to real as you can get.
