Hi Experts, really appreciate your honest opinion on the question the following questions. I took GMAT in 2002 (690), since then have not been involved. Now, at the age of 35, the dream to study at a top school is urging me to at least try.
1) @35, is it possible to score 730+ or at least 700+?
2) @35, with investment related (but not private business) experiences in many frontier countries (Mongolia, Mozambique, Myanmar) for at least 1 year each, do I have a chance to get admitted to a top school? I am also a 25% shareholder (by capital contribution) of a private business (private kindergarten), and the sole partner/advisor to the other partner/friend.

Of course it's possible to get a great score at that age

You might have to give yourself a little more time though, considering that you are likely to have many more commitments now than you did in 2002. As for your second question, you should get in touch with the experts here.

Hi Hoosni,

Of course you can score well if you study for the test. And from the look of it, you seem to have a competitive profile for the B-Schools. Since you have already prepared for the test and score very near to your goal score, you need to brush a bit of the concepts and then start giving the mock CATs.

The best way would be to either pick up the course material/books that you already have or you can opt for a new one. You can do so by choosing one of the following ways:

1. In person classes/private tutoring
2. Online classes
3. Self paced online preparatory course
4. Book heavy approach

Whatever you choose, make sure that you choose one. Because GMAT tests you on some concepts and fundamentals that you can learn from a course. Most of the preparatory companies including ours offer a free trial of our course. You can take the trial and see if the course suits your needs.

In addition to the preparatory material, buy the Official Guides(both the Official Guide and the Verbal Review), Question Pack 1 and the 4 official mock CATs. They should be an indispensable part of your preparation.
