What would you guys like to see most on GMATClub? [#permalink] New post 02 Feb 2007, 16:15
What "features" can you guys think of that you would like to see most?

Some ideas that could be fun:

A weekly featured blog post of some kind

A "live chat" feature (think yahoo chat, irc, etc)

Integrated "MBA" profiles into the accounts (you click on the person name and you get their profile, GMAT, GPA, etc)

What else can you come up with?

No Way!

Porn == more revenue through Google AdWords!
I.e., Better server infrastructure!

Maybe we can have a scheme where the PORN Collection (much like the Challenges Collection) is available only to VERY Active Members!

On a Serious note,

1. Analysis Tool:
A system like Admissions 411 to allow GMATClub users to enter their stas and compare them with others (including application details) would really be helpful.

While I like admissions411.com's idea, I still think the UI is kind of clunky and the members not as lively as GMAT Club! Maybe a feature to extract the information into excel format for Analysis would also be great! Better still an online analysis tool to 'slice' (filter) the data and present different views of the data maintained would be very useful. For example sort the data based on different sorting criteria!

2. Communication Tool:
A system to allow GMAT Club Online users to chat with one another and also in an IRC like Chat Groups! This could be used by members for real time interactions and also by experts like Paul Bodine (OR invited adcom members) to conduct information sessions etc!

3. Blog:
Allow users to maintain their admission BLOG or link to a blog external to GMAT Club

4. Customizable Front Page
It would be nice if the landing/front page of GMAT Club was customizable to allow users to include RSS 'widgets' with information extracted from other notable MBA/GMAT sites like Business Week/EIU etc.

5. Post MBA data analysis
When GMAT Club was formed, it focussed around GMAT Takers and their issues. Now it has evolved with the community into a more generic MBA forum focussing not only on GMAT but also on MBA admissions. As these members continue move on to start their MBA and later into the post MBA world, it would be nice if we had some tools (maybe a variant of admissions411) to capture post MBA statistics (like industry graduates end up joining, starting salary, activities they participated in school, internship etc etc) in another table which can be classified based on schools! Again a dynamic online analysis tool to sort and present the data would be really helpful!

Housing information for all those schools listed on Hjort's rankings.

On/off-campus housing for singles, married couples, families, and of course, pet friendly units.

Alumni or current students from lots of schools answering questions. It'd be great if they participated regularly in forums, but if not, at least pre-arranged chats or something would work.

GMATclub grads have already made it into several (most? all?) relevant schools, so they could chime in every now and then.

Cheers. L.

thanks rhyme for starting this thread and thanks for the feedback.

Our best ideas have often come from users. As you may or may not know, rhyme and lhotseface deserve all the credit for the idea of a B-school application forum.

Go on, please let us know what would make life better for the B-school student.

A simpler version of this has been there, but I can see how it is so easy to miss..

http://www.gmatclub.com/content/chat.php

Nice idea.. thanks again..

3. Blog:

Allow users to maintain their admission BLOG or link to a blog external to GMAT Club


OK...this can be done.

With the current set up, your blog will read something like this..
gmatclub.blogs.com/sm176811

We have flexiblity for hosting unlimited blogs with typepad, so this shouldnt be an issue..

4. Customizable Front Page

Sounds interesting..tell us a little bit more. How can we implement this?

OK.. let me find out more..

A final note is that we can create all the cool applications, but it is you, the user, who will bring these applications to life. This is why user feedback is so important.

Sure.. we simply need members who are currently in b-schools to ask us for a thread and it will be set up right away. Fall is not far away, so be ready with those requests..

As in the past year, we have moved from just GMAT to general application queries (all due to Rhyme and lhotse's persistence). I think we should also have a section where the stage between admit and matriculation would be discussed.

Something on the lines of Verbal discussion and Maths discussion forums.
We can discuss about Stats, Calculus, Finance etc.

A "printable version" button in the forum would be nice. There's some valuable info in there that I'd like to print for later use when I'm not at my pc.
