Thanks a lot for the Prize (Math Revolution Short-Cut 51 Course).

I believe this course is not right fit for me and it is justified that i don't take it. I hope it can and will be better utilized by someone else.
Request you to award it to someone else. :)

Again, thanks a lot for the such an amazing competition. learned a lot out of it.

Wish everyone success in their journey.

This course, as can be seen on their website, is anyways free.
"Crack Verbal MBA Kickstarter Course - $99 each"


However, the learnings from this competition were great.
I have gained a lot from this competition.
I wish I could have performed better to get some other gift for my prep.
Thanks to all the moderators and creators. :)

Thanks a lot bb. Really appreciate the efforts behind this competition and it has helped us a lot.
I thank Experts Global for their prize. Much appreciated, and glad :-)

I have a special request to make. Although, I could get benefited by taking practice tests am more weak in Quant and a course based in Quant will help me more at the moment. If anyone here finds a better fit with 15 full length GMAT Tests (Experts Global Must Have) compared to their Quant course(Math Revolution Short-Cut 51 Course), and wishes to exchange it please let me know.

P.S: If by any chance, this is not allowed and against the rule of this competition, kindly ignore my request.

It is not unethical I think, just makes your prize less special. If this prize was not provided, we would have had 15 or 20 fewer prizes, and some people would not get anything.
The fact that you bought something and later on it is available for free, does not make it less valuable to you. You are no worse off than you were a week or a month ago. I would cool it.

Well... you technically chose a diff prize so does not impact you. ;)
But if anything, one can be upset with me since I did not know and did not check one could get the course for free. I guess I will be smarter next time. I did not assume someone could offer that kind of a reward.... :cry:

I am sorry, but I have to (Respectfully and Politely) disagree. Unless, their 'prize' contains something in addition to what is available in general for free.

In my opinion, trying to pass off a free service as a generous sponsorship is unethical. Dozens of other prep companies could have offered their free tests/resources as sponsored prizes.

Quote:
we would have had 15 or 20 fewer prizes, and some people would not get anything.

I would argue that in fact we had 15 or 20 fewer prizes and some people did in fact not win anything because of the competition. (Everyone can access the free course irrespective of the competition results)

I am sure all of us are grateful for the competition, and for the truly generous sponsorships provided by other prep companies. It's okay to have 15 fewer prizes :) . The remaining prizes are still extremely generous and the competition was very helpful to us all!

I don't want to make a big deal out of it. But I thought of sharing my opinion. :)

Just my 2 cents. :)

PS: This does not affect me. I am very happy with my prize (TTP).

PS2: Not blaming the organisers. As I said earlier, the competition was great!

Hey.. that's not your fault if someone gave you something in form of nothing. Don't be too hard on yourself. The members did suffer. But you had no intention of doing so... :) What happened isn't upto us, but what we do next is.... ?

Sorry don't wanna sound like a yogi. But Then again I am kinda nuts lol.

What a terrible dirty liar you are - it is a whole $1 :lol: :lol: :lol:
I am kidding of course

P.S. It is a bummer, but I am glad you got value out of it! That's the most important part. Some of the best thing sand advice are free.... but it is hard to know value of things and when it says $1, it does not always scream with value.
