Hi all,

My name is Loryn and i've been lurking the site for a few weeks now after a disappointing first attempt (450). I know I can do better than this...I have horrible testing anxiety which played a large factor in my score and I ran out of time in 2 sections as well. I also grew up with a comprehension problem that I have fought with for my whole life. I've decided that studying alone is just too overwhelming for me and I now have tutor who scored a 710 and she also has gone through the same type of testing anxiety I have, which is really helpful because she always has great techniques and tricks she teachs me to help deal with the anxiety i get from the GMAT. My biggest problem is that I see a question, see all the words and freak out...My tutor is working with me now to help me see the problem in it's simplest terms and recognize exactly what I need to do.

I'm trying to get into a part-time program at Northwestern. I'm currenlty just aiming to hit 650, as the average of this years class was a 695 (but maybe I should aim a little higher?? Suggestions??). The GPA average from the current years class is a 3.4 and I currenlty hold an overall GPA of 3.55, my last two years of college, I decided I wanted to go further with my education and got a little more serious, in those last two years I was able to achieve a 3.75 GPA. I also work in the Public Safety Industry, because I really enjoy working with the general public and being able to help others. I find it very rewarding. I am hoping that all of these things will help get me into Northwestern's part time program.

I spend a lot of time studying, 2 hours a night every M-T, and an average of 4 hours each day/night on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I meet with my tutor twice a week for 2 hours each session as well. Hoping that this help me hit that 650 or higher on my next attempt which is shy of just 2 months away!

HERE I GO!!!

Hi everyone,

I stumbled across this website some time ago while researching the GMAT. I have been absorbing all the material here for a while now and finally decided to join. I am an undergraduate and heard that the best time to take the GMAT is while I am still in school and study mode.
Just like nearly everyone else on this site, I am aiming for a 700+ score.

Best

Hi everyone,

I'm a 23 years old spanish male thinking about applying for an MBA in April. I'm living in the UK now and would like to do the MBA here or in the US. I'm taking My IELTS test in december and will take the GMAT before April.

I'm not going to start studying already but I want to start preparing and geting as much information as I can, not only for the GMAT test, also for choosing the right MBA for me.

This forum looks very helpful and interesting for people who are preparing their MBA application. I feel a bit lost in these MBA world and would really appreciate your help in future questions or doubts. I cant help much for the moment I'm afraid, because I feel a little bit like an Octopus in the desert. But I'll try to help other people in the future, as soon as I know a little bit more about all these.

Thank you very much and good luck!

Hello,
I have been browsing the site and intensely studying for the past 3 weeks. I just registered for the GMAT (10 mins ago). D-Day is on December 7th. My background is in Finance. I am a good self-studier and I feel like I have a good system in place already. I passed all 3 levels of the CFA exam on the first attempt. I received confirmation that I passed Level III in August and I have become stir-crazy without having something to study. I am shooting for a top-15 school. 3.4 GPA undergrad. Division 1 athlete. Fraternity president. I finished the Kaplan: Strategies, Practice and Review Book already. I will finish Kaplan's GMAT 800 tonight and then start working on the Official Guide. I take my first CAT tomorrow. Best of luck!

Ciao!

I'm taking the GMAT for the first time next Tuesday (11/21/12). It'll be the first standardized test I've taken since I was 18 (oh, my salad days!) and I've been spending almost all of my non-work time studying, thinking about studying, procrastinating on studying, and on a few occasions, dreaming about studying.

I'm a 25-year-old Asian American gal, tragically math-dumb relative to the rest of my people. This explains why I'm in finance, because everyone knows the smart Asians become doctors or engineers. 3.4 GPA, Top-5 LAC, Economics & Psychology double major with an unofficial degree in Charming Bullshit. Women's leadership advocate, poet, and avid alumna. I love what I do (buy-side equity research) and would consider an MBA in the next few years to get me to my goal of one day running my own investment management firm.

Making good progress on my goal of 700+, see you all on the flip side.


-L.

Hi everybody :)

I'm Thomas from France. I'm a student in dauphine parisian university in my third and, thus final, year of bachelor ("licence"). I have to apply for master programs next year. There is one which is highly selective and I need to join a GMAT and a TOEFL test to my application. The deadline is in May but I haven't set a exact date for when I will take the GMAT but I'm thinking about february. I'm first gonna try to follow a one month study plan and I will decide wether or not I need more time at the end of the month.

I took a first GMATprep test yesterday and I got 580, 40 in quantitative and 29 in verbal. My goal is 700+. What do you think about it ?

I read that people usually manage to improve by 100-150. The quantitative part seems easy to improve. I've started to read "crack the GMAT" and I've already learnt a lot of tips which would probably help me a lot in improving my score. However the verbal part seems really tough to me. Indeed, english is not my mother tongue. I almost used guessing for every sentence correction question. :lol: But again, I haven't read any strategies or tips before taking that first GMAT test.

See you on the forum.

Hello Gmates :),


I am Maciej, Bachelor graduate in International Business, which is more Politics and Law than Maths. Actually, I haven’t had any Math for 6 years, take some or add some. Therefore yes, I am the rusty one with Math, and I am not native speaker at that.


My target is more than 550 points.


First thing I’ve done before learning anything was the Diagnostic Test in OG12. My scores fell within average all throughout.
Then I embarked on MGMAT starting with the first volume. Now I’ve been preparing for 33 days (update 2012-12-11) and I’ve just finished the 4th Guide (Word Translations). I complete each Guide with the listed OG12 and QR2 GMAT questions. So far, for me the hardest area covered is the advanced combinatorics/probability.


My question concerns my progress according to the generally available study plans.


Disputably, most recommend doing math part in one month, which means I am one volume behind (with v. 5 – Geometry). Everything would be fine, if not the estimations of the planners, that this would be achieved by doing 2-3 hrs 5 days a week + 4-5 hrs on Saturdays and a day off.


Various planners agree in this matter to a great extent. Or actually even more, because in every single detail. Therefore I wonder if they really agree, or if they just copy the estimations and claim them genuine.


Anyway, referring to the estimations, for the first two weeks I’ve been working 2-3 hours a day and I started to drill heavily with the 3rd Guide, which means 5-7 hrs 7 days a week. This resulted in finishing Word Translations in 9 days.


Generally I score 99% in both PS and DS, but with no regard to time. With timing I have just 50%, despite devoting hours to learning. The thing is, I would like to know if I am doing it wrong, or if I am some math retard, or if my progress is just fine.


To anticipate some advices I must write that I read a lot English and German which are my foreign languages, I have an already lapsed TOEFL (95 points) and a valid TestDaF (4.25), so there is no problem with lacking comprehension.


I plan to finish the Math Part of MGMAT now (together with the listed Real GMAT Problems), then – I am not sure how to advance. I’d prefer not moving to the verbal part before I haven’t the math part mastered enough to achieve 600-700 score.


I would like to ask your advice, how could I better organize my progress?
