Its E.

You are comparing similar things - young adults to earlier generation - this eliminates A (its got a like comparison). Out of the remaining options E sounds the most parallel - ..... a goal of <xyz>, as it was of <abc> .

Answer option E, use of "as" is preferred over "like" and parallel construction.

Hey BSD

....well, I have finished my applications and don't know what to do with myself . I am seriously thinking about improving my GMATscore to strengthen my position@waitlist. However, I have to admit that you as a true GMAT master inspire me to re-take it!

cheers mate!

hi cat, I think retaking the gmat is an excellent idea. Your quant is already amazing. Just practice the verbal a little, you can improve it big time and easily cross 700. I am currently using a software called gmatter (http://www.gmatter.biz) to practice. Its very useful as a simulator the of real GMAT verbal experience.
