definitely change the name. I first saw this site and assumed it was all about GMAT and figured um.. no thanks. I am doing fine and don't need to spend my time on a message board for that.

Had I known about the resources for colleges, I would have def used it more in the essay writing / researching phase. Guess.. what i am saying is the name def makes it seem like its all about GMAT prep so is probably ignored by a lot of ppl.

By your same reasoning, if we change the name to MBA Club, or something similar, will we miss people looking for GMAT help? They'll see MBAClub or MBAJourney (which I really like this name by the way) and think it's not help for the GMAT.

That was exactly the point I was trying to make a few posts back. Leave it to the lawyer to clear things up! ;)

yeah i would guess MBA club may exclude those looking for GMAT help. I do think MBAJourney is more encompassing - since its hard to think of the GMAT as anything else but a step in the MBA Journey.

anyways, was sharing my experience. I dont know that it is typical or representative at all.

Thanks for saying what you think. That's the point of the forum :-D

To pull a lesson out of this, I think we can realize the difference between a label and branding. Something may be labeled GMATClub, but it can be branded to be more than just GMAT. Take Under Armour for example. At first glance this may appear to be representative of impenetrable metal placed beneath one's clothing. However, in reality this is not the case. Under Armour has been well branded to include a vast array of athletic clothing; however, it's name may mislead some prospective users. And yes, for those HBS and Darden admits, do expect to see this case discussed next year.

For those that couldn't tell, or don't know me, that was an attempt at humor. Let nothing I wrote be taken in the wrong way or out of context.

In the most recent season of Entourage, the guys head out to the desert to find direction and Vincent can then decide if he is supposed to do smoke jumpers. What was it that they called that trek out there? I thought it had some name they referred to it as. Maybe you see where I'm headed with that...

I was thinking about this, and I have something that may work (but be overly intricate).

You keep GMAT club. You have something MBA related as the other title. Then you feed both the shell front pages into the same forum, with both logos at the top or something.

That way you keep the clear GMAT identification, but drag the other pull side into the same pool. I think there would be a fair amount of equity lost by simply disposing of the gmatclub name.

Actually, this would be rather easy. We could have www.mbajourney.com and that would actually feed into this website. The logo displayed could be dependent upon the referring url. If the referring url is MBAJorney.com, then the MBAJourney logo is displayed, otherwise, it's the GMATClub logo.

still need to think of a good name but part of the reason there's so many gmat posts is because of the name gmatclub. if there's a name change, i think it would attract a wider audience.

obama's got some great marketing himself - change.gov and "yes we can". those have so much meaning embedded within and not directly saying that he's the president of the us. maybe we can get creative and come up with something without mba or gmat in the site name.

I quite liked B-School kitchen.

B-School Club sounds snazzier than MBAclub.

Looks like I came into this one late, but I like BSchoolClub - that way we also include Masters of Finance and PhD type of courses. We can also add a tagline or something (eg. BSchoolClub - From GMAT to Graduation) so people know that they can still get absolutely fantastic GMAT materials here.

From the names mentioned, Schrute School of Business was in a league of its own (though isn't that the same as Cornell - Schrute's dream school?) I thought MBAJourney was quite apt (nicely summarizes what these forums are about). MBAClub is probably the easiest from a transitioning standpoint. I also liked MBANation and MBACircle.

Let me throw a couple in the hat:
BSchoolCafe
MBAgear

On a lighter note:
MBAorFAIL (b-school fanatics, rejoice!)
BSchoolVoodoo ("Voodoo, the successful applicants' secret ingredient")
MBAKudosClan ("Its all about giving")
DingDoctors ("Paul Bodine and Alex Chu. Where are you?")
