Congratulations to all of the winners of the 100,000 members promo!

You have participated and you have won fairly!
I can't wait to award you the prizes won, but there is one last step, as per the rules, we would like to ask the winners of prizes 1 - 8 to share with us a bit about themselves. We don't want to invade privacy and force you to disclose too much. (You have already done all of that on facebook anyway).


However, we would like to know more about you - we want to know who the stars are!

  1. Would you please post a photo (you can be as close or far away as you would like)
  2. Country and City where you live in
  3. Approximate date of your gmat
  4. Schools you are planning to apply to
  5. Your favorite movie
  6. A talent you posses or something you are good at
  7. Anything else you would like to share



P.S. It has been a month and we already have 105,718 members - I believe that was the most growth we had ever!

Thanks to the Community, I won the Prize I wanted - Kaplan Course. I hope an access to the Quize Bank of 6000 questions is included :). Did I want The First Prize? No. Because for now GMAT is more important for me than just a fun trip to US. I just can not allow me to spend 4 days in trip, 4 days during which I can do 8 CATs :) Did I want Ipad? Yes. But after winning two Prizes in a raw I decided that Lady Luck already gave me all my chances and it was time to stop. And I'm happy :)

So, back to business.
Will give the Gmat this month.
I'll apply to LBS, Wharton, Booth, Haas and Duke.
Movie? "The Rock", "Pearl Harbor", Russian movie "Остров", and "Face off".
What am I good in? In everything except for both hard studying and Gmat :)
There's smth else I would like to say I'll update the post in couple of days.

Hello guys, i'm Michael, currently in Moscow, Russia, and i won a Knewton Course. First of all, it was more a question of luck rather than of a quantity and quality of my posts. I got a great offer from the leading magazine and started writing articles for it. It took so much time that i almost stopped my GMAT preparation and posting here. But now i'm almost over, so promise to participate in discussions again!
GMATClub is a tremendous source of information. Now i know what books to use (i've already received a "must read" set - OG's, MGMAT's and other). Before i found this forum, my preparation was much poorer, without any system. Now it is getting better. I plan to make a first try on january-february'2011.

Already made a list of interesting schools including Ross, Tuck, NYU, Tepper, Darden, Duke, Goizueta.

I'm more in a music rather than in a movie, but gonna name something classical like Scar Face, God Father-))
I was playing professional basketball and still keep balling for fun, rather good)
Also i work in media business and think that have impressive writing skills (even got 27 out of 30 in Writing section of TOEFL :lol: ) and write on weekly basis for prominent russian sites and magazines.
The mix with marketing industry, i'm currently in, is a strong side of my profile. At least i want to make it so)

I'm originally from Argentina but currently live in Kyrgyzstan, in the city of Tokmok.
I plan to take the GMAT after finishing the Veritas Prep that I just won, thanks GMAT Club! hope no later than December.
I'd like to apply to Michigan Ross, University of Wisconsin in Madison, University of Washington Foster, and maybe Tuck and Haas.
Not really fan of movies or TV, but if I had to choose it would be The Shawshank Redemption.
More than a talent is something that I like to do very much: hiking anywhere in the mountains and forests. Here in the picture I'm with my little son in Yosemite National Park, California (was lucky to visit several parks during the summer).
Thanks GMAT Club for this amazing prize and good luck to all the members in their career development.
