Hi Abhishek,

thanks for sharing the experience. One question: why the class of 2014? I thought applications were now valid for 2013. Could you please explain?

Thanks.

My 2 cents, I suppose by Class of 2014 means - passing out year is 2014 & entry year is 2012 (possibly in Sep'12)....

Cheers

Hi Abhi,

Congratulations! I am traveling in the same boat as you were before you scored 700.

I took my GMAT today and got 570 Q 47 , V 21. This is lesser that I got in my previous attempt 600. Guess your post do tell people never give up anything when you have a final leap to finish.

Let me gear up and try to read something on verbal to help me get a break through in score.

Cheers!

Wow what a motivating story, yours is!! I am in the same boat where it's hard to sometimes identify with people who score 760 on their first attempt whereas you put your heart and soul into it and have a 620 to show for it. Congrats on a great score and most importantly for getting into Harvard.

KUDOS

Thank you so much for the best wishes. I am very happy I could make difference in how you feel about GMAT.

I wanted share an even better news that gave me shock waves in recent past post admission.

1) 100% financial fellowship for tuition from Harvard

2) A pre 5 months MBA internship at Blackstone, a private equity firm

so I guess it was worth getting into Harvard after all.

I am working on my post for Harvard and Beyond and will post soon.

Best,

Abhishek
