That's a great story! We always get the 700 club stories from the males (which is always appreciated :) but as a woman, it's great to hear the inspiring stories from the women in the group because there are very few of us. As a non-traditional MBA perspective...this def. lets me know its possible. I have been studying 4 hrs Tues-Friday, and 6 hrs Sat & Sun, with Mondays to relax. I am really improving and aiming for 700's! My test date is July 26th! Pray for me lol :lol:

Nitty, I will be praying for you, but I don't think you need it! If you've been studying hard and believe in yourself, I have no doubt you will succeed!!! Anyone with a bit of determination can do it!!
All the best,

Thank you. This is great advice. I have the Official Guides. It is good to know that they are really so very helpful. I read the Economist too. Good luck. Where will you be applying?

:P Congrats dear!

As others have said, a truly inspirational story. I am in somewhat of a similar scoring predicament (around 580-600) and need to be much higher. Not having a quant background myself either, I need to be more diligent on my practicing. Your experience is not only enlightening, but quite motivating! Best of luck in your apps, and thanks for sharing the wicked news... :lol:

Cheers 8-)

Everytime ...Everytime...When the voices in my head tell me, it ain't worth it, the efforts are in vain and I couldn't make it...
I come back here to read such posts and the voices somehow disappear....

Yes, We Can!!!!
