Hi all
I've used gmatclub frequently in my preparation, although I haven't talked much, just as I don't in my real life.
I took my gmat 2 days ago and got a 740 (Q49 V41). this is while I did the last MGMAT CAT exam just a day before the real exam and got a 780. I was planning for HBS. now I feel all the plans has been backfired.
what are your thoughts on this? I know 740 won't be a setback in the resume, but it won't be an ace card neither.
some encouragement guys, need some energy. hopes are fading away.

(I had to take the gmat abroad, and am not home yet; as soon as I get back home, I certainly will share with you all the exprience)

perfectionist,

740 is good enough for Harvard. Don't sweat the 40 'lost' points. Go out there and give the applications your best shot. It is your overall profile that matters, not whether you have a 98%le or a 99%le on the GMAT.

Don't worry. There are others in the same boat. :) Prepare your admission package well.

740 isn't that bad.
