You tend to find the vocal majority are usually high GMAT scorers... however!!! This forum is not one of those which bangs on about high GMAT scores. I only scored 610, and certainly don`t feel out of place here, and certainly as kryzak says, this part of the forums is more about the application and very little to do with the GMAT, other than as a statistic. Recommendations, school discussions, essays, rankings(thier useful/less ness) are more the items discussed here.

Certainly, more rapport and connections are built here than in other `MBA` forums. It actually feels like a community rather than just a message board.

thanks for the necro bump. this post is gold.

The only thing I can do to calm myself during app time is to remember how worried I was about the GMAT, and remember that turned out just fine. Gotta stop being a worrier... :boom :boom :boom

I've been lurking on this forum for a few weeks since I'm in the stage 5/6 area right now. I actually signed up to post just to thank the author. This thread was really comforting and funny. I sent it to some of my friends that were wondering why I was acting so weird.

I have no idea where I stand with any schools this year and am currently researching schools with late round 1 dates/rolling admissions because I'm not confident I stack up well at Tuck, Johnson or Kellogg. We'll see what happens.

also this place has the best smilies I've ever seen

I am now officially terrified after reading this post. I appreciate the breakdown, and I can tell that so far its spot on for me! I just want this process to be over and I know I've still got 7 more months until R1 Dings/Accepts/WL start rolling in. This is going to eat at my soul! I hope this forum becomes the support group that i need, I can tell that my original group is starting to get a little bit fed up!

Pretty much the story of most Fall 09 Bschool applicants in this forum. You will get more support than you can imagine.

I concur. If not, you can always turn to alcohol :)

I have a feeling it might turn to that if things don't go to plan.

To those applying to H/S/MIT/C have you guys started your essays yet? I was thinking of beginning this weekend, hope I'm not off to a late start (I would highly doubt I am...). Let me know, I think I start working a little better knowing I might be behind the eight ball a little bit.
