Want to know probable chances of me getting through some of the other schools and even usual decision times.
Sorry for the long write up, just wanted to get a very thorough opinion. Any help is extremely appreciated.
BTW I got the GMAT score after 1 month of study (all thanks to the forum and some delightfully helpful members) and Manhattan GMAT
. They are good and can really predict a score. Thought I had a somewhat unfair advantage in giving the GRE first though since it kind of gave me a starting point.
