Hi everyone,


I've written the GMAT thrice and the first two attempts my score remained at a harrowing 530. The second time around was particularly deflating as I'd put a whole two months aside for it and still ended up with the same score. I got into a new job and started prepping again, and gave the test to land a 620. The jump was reasonable and time really isn't of the essence, so I decided to start applying to colleges, with work experiences and significant extra-curriculars to help boost my profile and scores. However this past week, I've grown increasingly disillusioned with my score and am now at a crossroads; Work has been the most hectic it's ever been and I feel like I can do better. Any sort of advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi abhinshetty,

Based on what you've described, it sounds like you've already sent in some applications. Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on your timeline and your goals:

1) What Schools have you applied to? When did you apply?
2) What additional Schools are you planning to apply to? Will you still want to apply if you get accepted to any of the Schools that you already applied to?
3) What Application Rounds do you next want to apply for?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

For GMAT re-takers, I would highly recommend EMPOWERgmat. The online course is extremely beneficial and almost guarantees a 700+ score. What differentiates EMPOWERgmat from other online courses is its holistic approach towards GMAT - mental, physical, and psychological. The course is extremely GMAT-specific and doesn't jam your brain with irrelevant content, which may be absolutely unnecessary to crack the exam.

I'm not an EMPOWERgmat spokesperson. But after enrolling for the course, I have consistently scored 700+ on every practice test. EMPOWERgmat is by far the most advanced course available in terms of content, support, and clarity.

Hi
In my opinion, you should enroll into some course either online or classroom. I am saying this because you have already appeared for the Gmat thrice and need to unlearn and learn the concepts. You can opt for Egmat, Empowergmat, Economist gmat. All these courses have good feedback on Gmatclub and will certainly help you. But remember to take free trial sessions from these courses and then decide for yourself which you feel suitable.
