Hi Everyone,

I have just recently been accepted into a global top 50 B-school, the only one I applied for, with a very generous scholarship so am feeling pretty pleased with myself, especially when you consider I scored in the 40th percentile for quant and have no undergraduate.

For all of you who are scoring up the top of the GMAT tables and on track to get into the top tier program of your dreams you will probably find this post a little boring, but for the rest off you, please take my story as an example of what's possible if you put in the effort.

At the end of the day we all have a finite amount of resources, be it time, money, mental horsepower etc so the obvious trick is making the most of it, and getting the best score YOU can do. You also obviously cannot change your work experience, extra curricular's or the size of your wallet. The most important thing in my opinion is making the most of the things you can control. Be honest and sincere in your applications being sure to highlight who you are rather than just what you have achieved. At the end of the day, admissions personnel are humans too and everyone likes to read a quality story.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to post below or PM me.

I really do need to take a second to thank EMPOWERgmatRichC for all the advice he offered when I had to reschedule my GMAT to two weeks in front of me and the ongoing guidance since then. mikemcgarry whom I feel I have got to know pretty well as a magoosh student, and also Bunuel who has an amazing ability to make even the toughest math problems make sense to me... Even if I couldn't bring it together on the day.

Cheers!
