если я обидел твои чувства, то извини этого я меньше всего хотел.

ты учишь на степень МБА, ты просто обязан думать о том как поменять наши страны в лучшую сторону ( а лучше всего мир в целом), а не тупо продолжать глупые традиции СССР.

Изменения нужно начинать с себя.

Парни,

Отписываюсь по результатам - лучше поздно чем никогда

Пересдал я Жматину на 750(50/40), несмотря на то, что Тойфл еле-еле наскрёб на 100, и то аж со второго раза. Так что в деле Жмата главное подходы выучить и отработать, а не уровень Инглиша. Ну да, читать конечно надо быстро уметь, но всё остальное - со временем придёт.

И ещё: на своём примере я вижу, что высокий Жмат может частично outshine низкий Тойфл, потому что меня пригласили на интервью в Чикаго, в котором минимальный Тойфл - 104, против моих 100.

Wow!!! So many people! Hi there, I'm a female from Odessa, Ukraine (I'm actually in Odessa for another week, before I go back to NYC and then Charlotte, NC).

I got into Tuck this year, and waiting to hear from MIT, Wharton, and Stanford

Good luck guys!

Job market in Moscow looks great for expats. Awesome salaries, low wages and great social package u won't get in Europe or US. This is because most companies consider Russia to be dangerous for employees.
But the economics condition is getting worse and worse and you can't say the Russia is truly deserves a place in BRIC. It will be excluded soon.
But for an internship (2-3 months) it might be rather interesting.

Добро Пожаловать!

1. You have to believe in yourself - this is a long and arduous journey without a guaranteed result in the end and you have to want to get it as it will be hard and painful (getting recommendations, writing excruciating essays, etc). Many people have got in, so the answer is absolutely but depends on what school and amount of effort. MBA application is a lot of work as you know but it also requires personal change.

2. I know many applicants don't think they stand out. That's not true, or at least you have to make it not true for the next 9 months. You are absolutely special and unique in a number of ways. Believe in yourself and think great things. Do great things, and do the things you always wanted to get done now. If you are still feeling you need extra help on your profile/resume/etc - think what you are missing or what other people with unique profiles did, accomplish, engage in and pursue - that will make you a stronger and more interesting individual all around

3. You will need to either explain the low GPA (e.g. nobody in school received GPA higher than 3.0 or 3.2) or you will need to build up an academic profile in some other way (training, courses, etc). GPA is a very important part of the profile and is the most influential factor in your bschool graduation and success, at least based on the Adcom perspective.

4. Кто не рискует тот не пьет шампанское так сказать

Hi

I'm not from Ukraine, but I'm from a former CIS country. Would it be ok if people from such countries make posts here too?

btw, I've been to Kyiv and Dnepropetrovsk and I loved Ukraine!!!

Yes, it is right there!

Besides, bb, may I ask you a question?
Do you still live in Kiev? Or did you move somewhere?

I am Seattle, WA
I guess I could be clearer on my profile. I am just used to using airport codes for cities.

I don't see anyone from Russia? it's really surprise for me. So Tashkent is on the line!!! Hello again ex. USSRs!!! Does anyone remember UzSSR
I am still working with my GMAT now and the most sweat target is Chicago booth, so I think very soon I will torment all its students, including mr. Walker)))

good luck bratiya!!!

Привет!

Я был в Тошкенте (правильно? не Ташкенте) в 90х и только там я понял что такое настоящий плов!
Еще я помню что-то типа: укиш, укиш, ваяна укиш Правильно? Ну и нас учили переворачивать пиалу, если не хочешь больше чая.
А еще я до сих пор не могу забыть город солнца (Паркент) с солнечным концентратором - это нечто!

So, I'm open for any questions about Booth!

Good luck with application and GMAT!

Привет всем!

Приятно удивлён что столько активных контрибюторов, модераторов (и даже сам основатель!) этого Клуба из Украины. Ну и Ваши GMAT scores просто офигительны! Есть к чему стремиться, есть на кого равняться. Надеюсь получить что-нибудь такое, но понимаю, что это буде очень и очень трудно...

Я сам только что начал готовиться и Клуб реально помог сориентироваться, получить начальное представление о том, что предстоит делать. Пока ознакомился только с маленькой частью собранной здесь информации, так что здесь я задержусь на долго

Спасибо всем модераторам и старожилам сайта, желаю удачи всем "студентам"! Унас всё получится!

Спасибо Shalva.

Удачи на тесте и с поступлением. Терпенье и труд все перетрут - ох как я ненавидил это присказку в школе.

31 это конечно много (мне больше )) и в Гарвард точно будет тяжело попасть (или почти нереально)
Удачи в подготовке, если что - спрашивай

Всем привет!

В этом году я подаюсь в ТОП-10 US школ и в LBS.

С GMAT у меня личные счеты - я вчера провалил тест и набрал всего 690(48/36). Могу больше, просто я был уставшим, глаза болели, и вообще первый блин вышел комом. Зато теперь я знаю, как эта штука работает, поэтому через 30 дней я вернусь и порву эту заразу.

Всем привет!
Недавно даже думал о создании такой темы.
Рад встретить ребят из Украины и стран эксСССР!

Я родился в Украине. Сейчас живу и работаю в Москве.
К ГМАТу начал готовиться в начале 2009 года, про клуб узнал после первого провально-сданного теста.
Сейчас готовлюсь к тесту, планирую пересдавать вскоре. Куда планирую поступать зависит от ГМАТа.

Всем удачи!

Посетил Wharton - он большой (каждый год набирают 800 человек против 270 в Корнеле). Плюс есть интересная вешь: каждый четверг у них pub hour - за \$150 в год посещаешь вечеринку с неограниченым пивом, вином и пиццей (Пица, впрочем, закончилась быстро) .
