Well I finally took it after months of preparation. This was my first attempt and hopefully the last. I am still going to apply to top schools with this score and see what happens. Still I feel that I can do better, but don't think is worth it to retake. I will do so only if Univs. tell me to.

I was nervous at the beginning of the quant section. This made me lose time. I had to guess the second question!!!! The time ran out when I still had two questions left to answer. Lot's of DS questions. PS was not very hard but many of them were time consuming. One easy prob question and no standard deviation.

I thought verbal was fairly easy. The hardest questions in this section were CR's (I had to guess 3 of them). SC's were easy. RC was ok (thank god no literature passages) although 2 of them were almost 100 lines long. I had 4 passages in total.

I would like to thank everybody on this site, you guys were a really good help. I am not just saying this, I mean it.

If anybody has any questions I'll be more than glad to answer them.

I wish you all the best.

Martin.-

Thanks rakesh.

All I remember is that my first q was a SC and then I got a passage 50 lines long.

giddi77:

No I don't think it was harder than OG. It was one of those questions were you have to "see" the answer, use logic instead mathematical skills. I was so nervous that I couldn't think straight. With a cool head I'm sure it wouldn't have been hard to answer.

I am targeting HBS, Wharton, Columbia, Berkeley and Insead. I recently had a job offer from an european consulting firm so maybe I'll postpone the MBA for one year. Who knows, I might even retake the GMAT now that most of the pressure is off.
