Hello to all forum members!

Here is my story in a nutshell: I live in Croatia (new EU member state :idea:) and hold a MSc diploma in Electrical Engineering and diploma in Business (in Croatia it's typical to get Master diploma before gaining any real work experience). So for Croatia's standards, I have an above average CV but I don't believe internationally it has some real weight - one of the reasons I'm here.

I have 2,5 years of working experience mainly in Risk Management (commercial banking) and Corporate Finance / Financial Analysis. I've set-up a personal goal to myself: take the GMAT and score above 750 in the short-run. The GMAT and corresponding potential business schools are quite new to me. Honestly, currently I have no idea how to apply nor how would I finance any MBA without any real savings and with your typical Croatian bellow EU average standard of living / personal earnings. Problems are here to be solved so I chose the pragmatic approach of taking the GMAT, scoring high and seeing what may happen out of it later-on.

Anyhow, I'm really glad this community exists and I hope I'll be spending a lot of time here.

Cheers!

Hi everyone!

I'm half Japanese-Filipino, graduated from a university in the Philippines and just recently taught about taking an MBA. I still have a long way to go of planning. I am now based in Tokyo, working as a business/management consultant for a small Japanese company mainly for their subsidiary company in Manila for 3 years now. It would be nice to know other half jap-fil members or members who are based in Tokyo in this forum.

Good Luck to all of us!

Hi everyone! My name is Dustin. I graduated form Purdue University back in 2011. After graduation, I moved to Sydney, Australia for a job with a company that I called the Australian version of Redbox. It's been a great few years here, but I'm looking ahead to what's next! I think that answer is a MBA, so I'm putting my all into study to see what sort of marks I get.

Background: Undergrad in Selling & Sales Management. Minors in Organisational Leadership & Supervision and Entrepreneurship.

Current job: National Operations Manager

Interesting job facts: In 2010 I came to this business as an unpaid internship. In 2011 I moved back for a low-level operations job. Now I head up everything Operations related for the business!

Target Schools: LBS, Berkeley, and Chicago - Booth

Scores: My pre-tests were consistently hanging around 680 and I changed how I answered each question a week before the exam and fell all the way to 610.

Whats next: Coming back bigger and better and retaking in November to get my 700!

Hello, My name is Samikshya and I live in Tomball, Texas. I got my bachelors in accounting and Finance from UCCS in Colorado last year. Now I am trying to decide between PHD and MBA. I don't have a whole lot of experience in the field I'm shooting for. I took my first GMAT and was devastated. My score was 560 but that wasn't the devastating part. I lost my cool on the Integrated Reasoning section. I was only half way done when the 5 minute warning started flashing. I was so sad I ended up cancelling my score. All my life, I have been happy with what i've got but this time I want to get out of the box and aim for something out of my reach. So, I'm retackling this GMAT for the second time and my target is 720+ higher the better. I have three months to do it. Good luck everyone and I hope i can help this forum as much as I get help from it.

Hi All,

So getting ready to leave life as an active duty air force officer, and realized my B.A. in History wasn't really going to do much for me in the real world so going to persue an MBA. A bit about me, I'm already took the GMAT and enrolled in an MBA program. Two problems, first off I tanked the GMAT (I don't remember my score but I want to say it was around 530) I didn't study...at all... and the school is an online one that didn't have a GMAT requirement. At the time I was just getting a master's degree to check a box to continue on in the Air Force so quality of education didn't really matter. However... now I realize that isn't the best route and will be looking to attend a real instution full time using my GI Bill. In terms of where I am looking to apply, well it depends a lot on my wife. She is a doctoral candidate and honestly it will where she is at (or relatively close). Based off my previous experience of self studying I have saved up and committed to taking the Vertias in person full course. When put in acadamic situations (flight school, other military eduction, etc) I'm excellent at studying. If it just studying on my own time, not so much. I am looking to take the GMAT in April, with applications for B school around Dec/Jan for the fall 2016 academic year. Those dates would allow my wife and I to make decisions about schools/careers knowing roughly where we could both be at. Otherwise we would be persuing seperate objectives with one person having to commit with no knowledge of where the other could be. I've done 5 years of long distance relationships, and not in a rush to go back. Is there any recommeneded preperation pre GMAT course? My math is rusty at best and grammar was never my strong suit.

Welcome to GMAT Club Cardiff Chris!

My main suggestion would be not drag out and set GMAT date to about 3-4 months from the start of prep date. You don't have to book it that far out (usually plenty of slots at the test center, esp in APril) but you don't need to spend 8 months either. The sweet spot is 3-4 intense months of prep and enagement. It needs to be comprehensive if you are looking for 700 or above. If you take 6 months, you would be the limit of what your memory can handle without starting to drop pieces and require considerable review every day. Also, you don't need to subject yourself to the torture ;-)

Finally, here are a few threads you may find helpful:

Hi everyone :)

I'm currently a college student, and I'm actually not seeking admission into an MBA program. I'm applying for a MAcc or MSF, and the GMAT is required too, so here I am!

Unfortunately I took my first test without being fully prepared and only scored Q47/V30. I'm hoping to retake it after I make a study plan of sorts.

Any advice is appreciated and good luck to everyone :)

Hi all! I just signed up here as I am beginning a journey to a career switch. I am still not sure the exact direction I want to go with my career but the GMAT is the first step regardless of the direction I choose to take.

I have strong logic reasoning and analytic skills but I had bad study habits during undergraduate school so my GPA isn't the best. I was 3/4 of the way done with my BSME and I got discouraged by a few classes and switched to IE and I regret it. Now, I have grown professionally and developed my vision for what I want in life and in a career. I am wanting to push myself and my potential and see what I can do when I really apply myself. Im thinking of an MBA but I am also investigating an MS in Business Analytics or Predictive Analytics/Big Data.

Anyways, here are the details:

Age: 28
UG: BS Manufacturing Engineering Technology
School: University Of Memphis
GPA: 2.9
Work Exp: 4 Years (Industrial Engineering/Biomedical Manufacturing Engineering)
Goal: 690
My school choices depend on what path I take and what scores I can achieve. Assuming the best:

Tennessee-Knoxville (Business Analytics or MBA)
DePaul (not sure, I cant find the class profile for their MS in Predictive Analytics)
Vanderbilt Owen (MBA if my GMAT is anywhere close)

Possibly a few more as investigate the business analyst/predictive analytics programs. They aren't as cut and dried as the MBA programs. So if anyone has any insight to the new and growing field of predictive analytics feel free to chime in!

Funny story, today is actually my 1 year anniversary on GMAT Club. Total lurkfest happening here.

I am just a southern gal with a dollar (not too much) and a dream (a lot of this though) trying to get her MBA.

A little more background: HBCU (historically black college and university) grad with a few years of work experience playing mind tricks with consumers. I believe that each full time opportunity I receive, I have to match that with a service effort of my choice. Soooo I get to work for an amazing non-profit that I hope to see grow into a sustainable, international change agent. This is in addition to working 60+ hours a week (oh and studying for the GMAT..again).

GMAT Club has been invaluable through all the hiccups of this journey and it isn't fair that I haven't been actively contributing like those of you that have inspired me. That said, hoping that I can be of the same service, particularly those that feel that everything is against them. I have a few bruises and scrapes but will always have an extra bandage handy for those that want to dust themselves off and tackle this crazy thing called GMAT once more. We got this!

Every third Indian is an engineer (of course an exaggeration). I am one too. I did my engineering and worked in a software company for 2 years. (in India and London). I did my first MBA from top 20 college in India and joined Citibank as a part of their Leadership Program - the management associate leadership program. I was Product Manager for liability products including: Debit cards, bank accounts and deposits. Currently, I work for an energy company managing their Middle East marketing. (Oman, UAE, Qatar, Saudi and Kuwait).

I feel my career is stagnating and want to move to consulting. Also, would love to add a premier B school name that is recognized globally. I am looking for 1 year MBA programs. My problem is that I am decently good (not exceptional) in quant and verbals. INSEAD is my target.

I work part time for two NGOs through UN volunteering. Plan to take GMAT in Jan :)

Hope to be in Paris next year.
