Welcome to the MBA forum. You said you are taking GMAT next Saturday whereas I already see a GMAT score added to your profile. Is it a mock test score?

Thank you so much!. The previously stated GMAT score was my Target and previously taken practice exam but almost 3 years ago. I took the exam last Saturday and scored a very horrific score of 490. I am on a mission of extensive prep to reach at least a score of 720 in one month.

Hi Murty,
Congrats on the score. I think you are one of the few applicants of my age. I am 34 . An entrepreneur for the last 10 years.

Where did you practice verbal from ? Any particular forums on GMAT that you followed?

Which other schools are you applying to ? Which admission expert have you finalised on?

Regards
