Hey all, I just did my 1st GMATPrep exam. I've only studied for maybe 5 good hours after years of no math. I'm a CPA and I work full-time. My dream school has a 550 minimum with 50/50 percentiles while most admitted students having higher than 600 scores. I have an excellent (3.73) undergrad GPA and work experience as well as military experience. What do you think is chance I increase my score enough to get in the school?

Any advice about what I should do? Obviously focus on Quant but anything more than that?

Thanks friends

Agree with focusing on Quant; I would recommend looking at common Quant questions and understand the foundational concepts needed for Quant (e.g. square roots, integers, geometry, etc.). Also, once you get more comfortable with the format and timing of the exam, that may help bring your score up a bit. Best of luck!

Hi,

I think a lot of other people work full time here, so don't let that bother you. you will have to manage time.
If you have a good academic background, it will be easy for you too crack quant with a little bit of more effort.try gmat club quant tests and improve your quant by understanding the concepts applied behind the questions. improving verbal will require more of time so if you don't have much time, try focussing more on quant by doing 600-700 level questions from this forum only under strict timed conditions.
dedication is the key.

hope it helps! don't forget to give kudos if it does.

Thanks everyone! I was very disappointed when I saw that score but I will react by working really hard instead of giving up! I honestly think if I hit around 600 I have a solid chance of getting in my school of choice but the I also need to hit 50th percentile in quant. I'll be working hard at just that for the next 6 weeks! I'm taking my first exam on August 26 so I will have time to retake if necessary!

I'm definitely going to do some 600-700 questions in gmat club tomorrow along with my OG!

I love this community
