I was wondering if there are R2 applicants, who like me, are looking towards Jan deadlines and still haven't reached their target GMAT score.
How are you juggling GMAT with application requirements?
Any tips from the experts to manage this smoothly.

@anurag16- I already scored a 640. I am aiming for a 740.
I know quite a lot of quant. It is now down to strategy and doing things faster. I reckon it would take me a month or so.

My verbal score was 35(70th percentile). I scored 76% in both SC and RC and 70% on CR. I am focusing on getting to the right answers in SC even faster, so I could save time on SC and use it in RC. If I have enough time in RC, my accuracy goes even as high as 90%. So given these constraints and my apps, I would book a date around end of December.

How about you?

I have a 640 (Q48 V30) too. My weak areas are DS and RC. I want to push my scores to Q 49-50 and V to 36-38 to achieve my target score. I have booked the date for 28th Dec. :oops: Let's see what happens!

Now my question is have you already shortlisted the schools based on your current score or 740 score. Which are your safe schools where you can be competitive with either of your scores?
