Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
i had been thinking about it for couple of years now...took the GMAT in April '05...had a lot going on in my life at that time and hence decided not to apply (i think i should have! the competition seems to be getting tougher !!!!)
Since high school. I sat down with my current boss my first month of work after college and told him I was going to be leaving in 4 years for business school. I told him if that was an issue, I could go work somewhere else.
It wasn't about resigning. I wanted to make my career goals clear to my boss so we could work together to achieve them. As an entry level engineer, I made it clear to him that I was working hard to be given increased management responsibility in order to be qualified for MBA admission.
He did his part by giving me unusual responsibly for an engineer as junior as I was.
I did my part by bringing projects on early and under budget and by trailblazing process improvements, which made him look good to his management.
Back in '02 I was offered a position abroad (somewhere in Africa) for 3 years. One of the main reasons for accepting the position, was that I'd plan to go for an MBA right after that. Then I could not prepare properly for GMAT in '05 so it slip till this year.
