If given the chance, I will write hundred times - GMATPrep questions. They are just gold mine and without practicing those question, crossing VA 40 would have been a pipe dream.



Hey kinjiGC,

highly motivating debrief... :-D :-D
Just wanted to ask, when you say gmat prep questions what exactly does that include?
The questions in the test as well as others?
Also could u tell me little bit about the scratch pad that u get on the test day? I read somewhere that you get one for each section :? is that true?


GMATPrep questions -> Questions which appear in the GMATPrep Mocks/Question Pack 1.
OG questions are -> in OG 13/Verbal 2nd edition.
I feel that OG questions are easier than GMATPrep questions. So first complete those questions and then come to GMATPrep Questions.

About the scratch Pad : You can ask as many as you want but the condition is only after you finish it. In my last attempt, my scratch pad was finished when 5-6 mins to go for quant and I literally didn't have space to do any further problems. I started searching for small side spaces and started writing the questions there. I think that might have affected my QA score and I got paltry QA 49. Anyway, so make sure you have enough space towards the end of the Quant section. Normally VA doesn't require any scratch pad, but some of the tough CR questions might require.

Hope I have answered your question.

Congratulations for making it to Tepper and NUS. Both these schools are excellent. Both have really good faculty as well as placements. You will be in good company at either school.

I agree with your assessment of ISB - with 9 years of experience, they may be concerned about your marketability after your MBA.

Quote:
I got calls from all the institutes apart from Anderson. It beats me why I didn't get a call from Anderson. May be the reason was I didn't spend too much time on the application and unlike other schools, I had only one essay to showcase my fit with the school. In other schools as I had two essays, I dedicated one essay for professional experience and other extra curriculars. In fact, having spent 9 years in Tech and my post MBA goals are in Tech industries, I thought west coast will make proper sense and Anderson will be a good fit.


Must be your application. I can say that the best places for techies are

1) Bay Area (really active VC community + amazing job opportunities)
2) NY Area (really good VC activity + job opportunities)
3) Dallas (although BB may recommend Seattle area)

Quote:
All in all, the Applications are way more tougher than GMAT and requires a considerable effort on behalf of applicant to network and talk to current students and come up with a good fit. I must say, all the current students or alum were very accommodating in answering questions about schools and inside details which is not available on the site.


I am glad that you actually talked to Alums. This gives insights that you won't get from the website or even from admission consultants.

Quote:
WPCarey is WL as of now


I am surprised. How was your application? You are the second student I know of who has been wait-listed despite having a good profile and a great GMAT score.

Overall, both Tepper and NUS are amazing schools. Just make sure that you continue tapping into the network at Tepper.

Good luck!!

egmat kinjiGC - Marketability in what sense? In terms of getting a placement or something else?


Rohit - you are correct - Marketability in terms of a getting a securing a job in which Kinjal earns significantly more than he currently is. After all, this is one of the metrics that every (or most) business school strives to achieve.

While GMAT is quite important at ISB, there are other factors that they look at as well. One factor that I know is International Work Experience. I know of couple of cases similar to the ones you cited (though guys not girls), in which ISB has offered offered admissions to students who had international experience despite low GMAT scores. This by no way means that they will reject students with high GMAT scores.

I am sure that Kinjal would have gotten through ISB if he had three years of experience as opposed to 9.

Nice.. Congratulations.. That's what I received in 2004. Its good to make some $$ while studying for free :).

I can tell you that WP Carey's placement is quite good. They are the #1 school in Az, so all the top companies come for recruitment there. This is one thing I realized after choosing Babson over WP Carey (I had the full fellowship from Babson as well). Since Babson is in Boston, close to MIT, Harvard, Yale, BU, BC, and comparable or better ranked schools, I had to compete for jobs with graduates from these colleges, whereas ASU graduates had the advantage of graduating from the #1 school in the state. Most of the graduating class of 2006 had jobs by 2005 December (The job market was really booming then)

You are in an excellent position. Choose wisely.

Hi KinjiGC
Thanks,


Please find my answers inline

1. Didn't you use Manhattan SC book at all?!

Kinjal : Yes, I used it but it is full of rules which I don't think you require all. I preferred to solve OG problems and practice only those rules which are getting tested.

2. you have said that you practiced with many many GMATPrep questions. However, didn't this have any effect on your scores in GMATPrep mock tests? Since you practiced with so many GMATprep questions, then it might be the case that you encountered some of them on mock tests with GMATprep.
I am thinking that whether it is a good strategy to work with GMATprep questions before taking GMATprep exams: if one solves too many of them, he/she might see some of them when practicing with GMATPrep software.

Kinjal : GMAT Prep questions are simply the best source you will ever get. So after taking mocks, keep retaking mocks till you get 770-780 in GMAT prep so that you have seen and practiced all the good questions. That will build perspective. At the end of the day, GMAT scores need to be valid for 5 years and they cannot test out of ordinary this year which they haven't tested earlier, as they have to make the scores uniform across. So practiced as many as possible GMAT Prep questions.

All the best.

Congratulations Kinjal !!!! Great debrief !!!!

May you please tell from where we can get GMAT PREP questions for practice?

Also, the GMAT exam SC questions are very different from the ones that we are used to- in the sense that GMAT SC questions lay more emphasis on proper construction, no redundancies, no awkward constructions etc. It's like all the 5 options sound weird, you just need to select the least weird option. You don't see any splits on GMAT SC questions- Did you have any specific strategy to tackle SC questions on exams? And how about CR questions?

Regards,
Rajeev.

For GMATPrep questions, you can search with the tag - GMATPrep. Also you can go to the souvik101990 's post which has a PDF which has majority of the GMATPrep SC questions.

I realized whatever I learnt from GMATPrep question, I can apply similar rules on the actual GMAT SC questions. Sentence Structure , Modifier, SV are the majority of the errors. You just need to complete as much as possible. Other sources such as magoosh, MGMT and VeritasPrep also have good question but those should be taken as extra practice. The back bone of your prep should be GMATPrep questions.

CR questions -> I am actually comfortable in CR and RC. But I practiced from GMATPrep sources and OG 13, Verbal review 2nd Edition. Keep on revising all the official questions and you should know the correct reason for wrong answers.
