Study group in Austin, TX or Accountability group online? [#permalink] New post 24 May 2012, 19:46
Hey guys,

I'm currently working full-time but plan to take the GMAT on August 20, 2:30PM. I've been studying on and off the past 2 months and got a good deal in. I'm pushing myself past the 700 mark right now, preferably 750. I'm very disciplined, hard working, and easy to work with; I'm looking for a couple of folks to get together and hold team accountable for ourselves each week.

I know it's a global forum and not sure if there's anyone in Austin right now... I'm definitely open to an online group. If anyone's interested, reply here and we'll figure out a way to get make it work regardless of location.

J.

Hey J,

this is a fantastic idea!

I too have a profile similar to yours. i work full time and started preparing for the exam in Jan'12 for a June1 exam date.
everything went alright for the first 3 months but it has only gone downhill since last 1 month ( family,work,life...) :)

i have decided to not post pone the June1 attempt but on the inside, i am *ready* for attempt no.2!

I'd like to hold myself accountable for the next attempt, i am looking at giving myself about 2 months ( early August)

Thanks

Very cool. You don't happen to be in Austin right now, do you?

If not, we can definitely create an online group. I'm thinking about utilizing Google Groups to create our own mini forum. The best thing to do is create a weekly checklist goal and allow others to hold you accountable.

For example, this week my goal will be to complete Number Properties and Critical Reading Study Guides. I also want to take a CAT and post all scores online.

Having others hold me to that is vital especially when I can easily come up with excuses of why I was "too busy." Furthermore, knowing what my online friends are doing and how well they're doing will keep me motivated and competitive.

Do you have any ideas that may make this work even better?

Guys, I have created a Google Groups discussion board.

"The purpose of this group is to share information vital to a successful testing, to encourage others to be proactive in their preparation, to hold the team accountable for their weekly goals, and to contribute frequently in any way that will lead to the success of ourselves and others."

If this is something that you think can help you, please let me know and PM your email to me (or leave it here). If it matters at all, I'm preparing for an August 20th exam. Hope to see some of you.
