Found this interesting article from Kaplan UK, a correlation graph between GMAT Score and Salary and supposedly every 10 GMAT Points are worth $5K on the annual basis.... Yeah, right. What a great example of a logical fallacy in CR Source: http://www.kaptest.co.uk/courses/gradua ... epare.aspx _________________ Founder of GMAT Club US News Rankings progression - last 10 years in a snapshot - New!

The "Bear Patrol" must be working like a charm! Lisa: That's specious reasoning, Dad. Homer: Thank you, dear. Lisa: By your logic I could claim that this rock keeps tigers away. Homer: Oh, how does it work? Lisa: It doesn't work. Homer: Uh-huh. Lisa: It's just a stupid rock. But I don't see any tigers around, do you? Homer: Lisa, I want to buy your rock. _________________ Strategy Discussion Thread | Strategy Master | GMAT Debrief| Please discuss strategies in discussion thread.

another version of data mining at its best.

give me any conjecture, and i can prove to you a high correlation to anything on this earth.

e.g., for investing: the superbowl indicator, the hemline indicator, etc.
