6 months of sacrifice, hard work and a drop of 20 points on the GMAT. I feel disappointed, confused but not broken.
For some weird reason I feel a sense of purpose. It has been 6 hours since the disaster and I feel like I am in a limbo. The only questions reverberating in my head are - Why am I doing this? What do I want out of all this? The only answer that I get from my inner self is that I want to do something for the masses that will be remembered for the times to come. After five gruelling years in the offshore energy sector I have found the purpose of my life. I need an MBA to learn how to fulfil that purpose.
Failures cannot break me, all they can do is shake me up and bring me back to my senses.
I gave my first GMAT on 12th August and scored a 660(Q40, V41). Today I scored a 640 (Q44, V33). I honestly do not know what went wrong. The whole exam went by smoothly, I did not loose my calm and focus.
So here is a million dollar question to the experts and to all those who have at some point in there lives found themselves in a similar situation - Should I go ahead and pour all my energy and creativity into the applications or should I buckle up and go for a third attempt of GMAT?

Warm regards
Dkingdom
