From Sterny: "Just took the test today and got a 750 (Q49, V44). While overall I am definitely happy and relieved I must admit I am a little disappointed with the quant score. Never scored less than 50, but some stupid decisions I made during the test cost me a 50+ quant score."
From ZoeGR: "I just took the GMAT and my overall was 640. I got Q50 AWA 5 and V25! As you understand from the AWA I have a good level in English! However, as I am not a native speaker, I would like to know if there are any tips that I can follow to improve the Verbal."

From GMAT Club member Cooper52:"I'm getting ready to start my second year of b-school and I couldn't be more excited! To all the MBAs out there - what tips do you have for new second year students? First year was absolutely insane (lots of work, but I still had fun)!"
From GMAT Club member GtGator03: "I know this topic has been touched on in individual school's forums, but I wanted to start a discussion specific to student loans. How is everyone going about handling their student loans? Direct and PLUS loans all the way with their 7.9% fixed interest (yikes!)? Or are you finding alternative loans with reduced rates? Are you using a co-signer? Variable or fixed interest rates?"
