Hi,

My name is Ulyana. I'm from Belarus. I hold a Bachelor degree in International Marketing and wish to pursue my education further abroad. I've just started my preparation and have a few weeks before the GMAT. But I work hard and want to get 650+ for this short period of time in order to be eligible for several Master's programs in Marketing.

This forum is amazing! And helps a lot!
Good luck everyone!

Hiho Gmatclub!

I have been lurking in the forums for a while now, mainly looking for questions to solve. Lately I've realized I will be more honest with myself if I start posting my attempts, both bad and good ones.

My goal is to reach 650-700. I know it might be a long walk and that it's possible that I won't reach my goal. However, I am looking forward to diving into the GMAT alot more heavily than I've done before.

I've still got 2 years left on my bachelor and will be taking the GMAT this upcoming summer(and if I fail then, I will give it another try the year after that!).

I hope to see alot of your faces around on the forum!

Hi
I'm not sure why I registered here.. perhaps to chat with people with the same interests.. figure out what is the best program to purchase and etc..
I have a B.S in Computer Engineering/ M.S in Electrical Engineering with an emphasis in Communication and digital signal processing. I went to Okkkk state schools for my undergrad and grad. My gpa for my undergrad was 3.21 (I can't believe how low it was) and 3.65 for my grad. I am planning on getting a perfect score on the GMAT and attending Stanford for MBA. I have 7 years of experience from which 5 years have been with the same defense aerospace company. I would appreciate any tips/advice anyone could offer me = )

Hey guys!

First of all I'd like to wish you all a happy new year! May all our desired Gmat-scores come true and let's kick off this year with a lot of encouragement!
I'm Eddy from Germany, have a double bachelors degree in international business and I'm looking forward to getting into one of the top business schools. My target gmat score is 720+, so let's see how this is going to work out in the next few weeks.

If anybody is interested in getting connected and maybe looking for a drilling-partner, I'm your go-to guy!

Best of luck and best wishes for your prep!

Hi Guys,

Venkat Here... a CS Engineering Graduate working in the IT industry for the past 8 years. Currently working as a Project Manager, but definitely sense a void and dont stand a chance unless i reinvent my self. Its surely time to get back to school. Hope this forum helps me start the drawing board to redefine my career. Definitely I would like to make to a top B-School in India for Exec MBA courses. I am eyeing programs in IIMs (Indian Institute of Management). I am targeting for a 750 score in GMAT to help me get to top B-Schools. I have just started my prep work, need to work on RC a lot. I have a decent reading speed but the questions bowl me out.
Pretty decent in Verbal and Math but I am sure i need to boost my skills there too.

Just got the Manhattan 8 strategy books and OG 13 to start with. Any suggestions on improving RC skills would be really helpful. Also I am watching for active conversations on MBA Essays as a lot depends on that.

Hey guys,

my name is Max and I am from Germany. Actually I have been studying Economics at a german public university and the University of Copenhagen and I am looking for admission at some European University (e.g. HANKEN Helsinki, Edinburgh, Rotterdam and so on) to specialize on questions of corporate governance and stakeholder communication. This forum seems to be absolute value. Special thanks to bb (man, I have no idea what you get out of this, but you well deserve it!) and all the other guys trying to help whereever they can. This is the perfect source for getting into the concepts and the main questions the GMAT wants to be solved.

My target is score is somewhere at 600-650. Hope I can achieve my goal until admissions, I will try my best on this!

Have a great day @ all

Max

Hey Guys ,
I am 31y old ,with a Ms in Electrical Engineering working for a top consumer electronics company. Just came out of dull phase in life and contemplating about getting an MBA .Planning to take GMAT early April. Started out preparing quants as per BB's recommendation , so far seems to be OK. Little preoccupied with the thought that I might be little old for an MBA, but going to give it a shot anyways. Quant's preparation seems to be ok so far but combinatorics/probability seems to be throwing me off guard . I wish good luck to everyone.

Dear All,
I've a Bsc in Management and Computer studies, and HND in Civil Engineering from Ghana. I work with an Insurance Broking Firm as the Assistant IT Manager. I took my first GMAT test in October last year but did not get a competitive score, so I'll be retaking the test next week 25th of this month ,my target score is 700+. I've already started my application process with one of the top business schools in Utah in the US, to pursue masters degree in management information systems with special focus in IT risk management and cyber security. This site has been of great help to me, especially all the debriefing from members who had scored excellently on the GMAT and the tips they recommend. I wish all of us the best and please let's us all be focus and never give up...but the key is practice, practice and practice.

Hi everyone,

I'm Blair from Washington, DC. I attended a top 10 liberal arts college where I earned a 3.4 GPA. I could have done better, but some socializing took priority over studying. It is what it is. For the past 2.5 years, I've been with a big consulting firm here in DC, primarily working on defense contracts.

I only just dove into the world of GMAT about a week ago so we'll see how things go, but I am aiming to score 730-750. I don't plan on applying to B-school until 2015/6, but figured I'd try and knock the GMAT out of the way in advance. Hope to take the test mid-May, before Memorial Day bbqs, nice weather, and rooftop happy hour season kicks into full force.

Hi everyone,

Viv here from Singapore. Been working for almost 8 years now and frankly,just want to have a break and go back to studies! I found my brain cells to be rusty and needed a way to fire them up, so I have no doubts that GMAT would do exactly that :wink: . So why MBA? Well I want to move to business :preferably in Sales/Trading of commodities.I wish to do the MBA from one of the top 20 schools by fall 2014( target GMAT score 700+) and also drive a Maserati in future :P ( with or without the help of my career post MBA)

Plan to take up the GMAT in April 2013. Wishing everyone else here in the forum the very best !

Cheers,
Viv

Hi everyone!

I just took an official GMAT test last month and am now kicking it into high gear in anticipation for Fall 2014 admissions. Joined this forum finally as I feel it is about time I can finally try to go for an MBA after years of looking from the outside in.

The reason I want an MBA is because I want the opportunity to get into consulting. I did not go to a top tier undergrad and feel this is my chance to redo some of the mistakes (ie. didn't do so well in high school). This will give me the opportunity to be invited to interviews as unfortunately, I have only made it to Round 2 of McKinsey and BCG and Bain didn't even give me an opportunity to interview.

Some background:
Northeastern University: 3.74/4
Unofficial GMAT score (waiting for official scores): 690
Work Experience: 2 years

Interested schools:
CEIBS
INSEAD (reach)
HBS (bigger reach?)
