Hi all! My name is Liz.

I have a BBA in Marketing from a state school in Texas. I currently work for an automotive distributor here- an uncommon occupation for my region because of the heavy emphasis on oil and gas. I've moved up quickly within the organization in my three years here. As a result, it's become very easy to let the desire to get an MBA subside while I'm comfortable in my job at my age. I always wanted to pursue an MBA to experience learning through the shared experience of others and to network!

I'm targeting a 690 at the moment. My employer pulled out all the stops to have me stay and work while pursuing the degree. As a result, I'm wrestling with doing a part time program and taking the financial assistance and following my dream of going to a top tier school.

Hi, I'm L4S. Recently finished my degree in applied mathematics from a top state school. However, I've decided on a career change and am looking to get a Masters in Finance and work in the finance field. Hence I am studying for the GMAT, looking to take it in 2-3 months. Aiming for an 800. Hopefully this place won't distract me too much from my prep.

Hi,

I am Kuntal, and I hail from India. I have 4+ years of experience in the Software Industry. My GMAT score is 760 (Q49 V44) and TOEFL score is 118 (30 29 29 30). However my IR score is very low (3/8). Do you guys think it might be a problem getting into a good B-School? Also which all schools might I safely apply for?

Hi everyone,
I am from the most common pool of applicants (Indian, male, IT, Engineer). I have taken my GMAT (scoring a 710), where the resources of this forum have been very useful. I am currently looking for colleges and trying to help students of this forum.

Cheers

Hello folks,

i wanted to introduce myself.

I am from Austria and just finished my BA in banking and finance at the University of Applied Science Vienna.

Before I started to study I finished my apprenticeship as an electrician and worked on the construction side.
I began my apprenticeship with 15 and it took 4 years.
Besides my job I attended the evening school and passed the entrance exam "Berufsreifeprüfung" and began to study.

I am not a native speaker, so excuess my bad english skills....

Currently I started to learn for the GMAT, my goal is a score above 740 and my dream is to attend the HSG in Swizz.

Hi everyone,

I'm Lazure, I have a background in law and have worked in a global company on B2B / B2C issues.
I'm will be applying to Wharton, Insead, LBS and still undecided between NYU and Berkeley. I'm looking for a general management program with a strong global reputation and network.

Regarding Gmat my main issue is quant since I haven't worked with numbers since high school ! I studied in English for two years so the verbal part is less of a challenge. I started my prep with Barron's book which I strongly advise people to avoid (many mistakes, unclear explanations). Then I stumbled upon Gmat Club on Google and after reading the books recommendations, I decided to purchase the MGMAT books.

I am aiming at a 700+ score which will be a challenge since my first MGMAT CAT score was 560.


I would like to warmly thank the founders, administrators and moderators of GMAT Club. Before joining I was lost regarding how to approach my Gmat prep and my MBA applications. This forum has provided with invaluable insight into the process, advices and motivation :).

I'm looking forward to exchange with you guys during the next months !

Hey folks, this is vartak, I have been working in operations for a start up firm in North America (New York) for past 4 years. I want to pursue MBA with top 10 B schools in U.S. I am trying hard to find time and study. I am sure this forum is going to help me a lot. I have started reading already. Keeping myself motivated is the biggest challenge at this time. I will post my questions on this forum as I move forward.

Hi Lazure,

I have a few things in common with you... I am aiming for INSEAD and have been using the MGMAT books. However the similarities end there as you look to be a far more impressive individual than me :)

I will say that choosing to purchase the MGMAT books will prove to be a very wise decision, I have found the books FANTASTIC!! I would however suggest that you still pay close attention to the verbal component. I am sure you have a very strong command of the English language, however the specific methods mentioned in the MGMAT books are really useful.

Although a lot of people will tell you that the questions in the Official Guide are too easy, they are really handy practice, in the later stages of your prep it might be useful to just go through them to get you used to the type of questions and the language used. I have personally used the Magoosh online platform, MGMAT, and the OG with Verbal and Quant additional books.

The Quant forums here are absolutely amazing and full of great questions. I would suggest though that it might not be wise to jump straight into the questions, particularly if you aren't too familiar with Quant. Wait until you are a good portion through the MGMAT guides and as you master certain components or areas, you can keep practicing them as you study further components.

Good luck and maybe I will see you at INSEAD one day.

My name is Amrina. I am a Canadian woman but I live in India for now.

I started my career after high school as a model but owning to my lacking of interest, I decided to get out the moment my contract was over. Since then, I have gone on to study at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. I graduated with a degree in Sociology and have worked with many Not-For-Profit groups over the years. I started out as a volunteer while at university but over the years have made my way to being a Community Resources Manager today. I have a bit more than five years of full-time professional experience and 9 years in total considering volunteering work and Intern experience.

I took the GMAT last year in February. I am quite satisfied with my result. In fact, I targeted a score of 650-700 but got 730. I have been unable to decide the right time to leave my job and take the plunge for MBA. I am in a comfortable spot with my work so it is quite difficult to quit the position I am in right now but I don't want to get too distant that by the time I put my mind to it, my GMAT score becomes obsolete. The only sore spot is I.R. I got 4/8 which is what I was expecting. I am not sure if I should re-take the test with the sole purpose of improving upon my I.R. score. That, the bitter experience of sitting on an uncomfortable chair in front of a computer for hours has damaged my motivation enough to re-take the test. Quite frankly, the moment I got my score, I brought the curtains down and so far I haven't looked back too much or even entertained the possibility of a re-test.

I'm an military officer who graduated college back in 2006 with a 3.72 GPA, B.S. in IT. I'm scheduled to take the GMAT on 23 January and I'm in dire need of a good study guide and/or group - as it's been awhile since I've been in civilian academia. I live in the Raleigh, NC area - so if anyone is willing to help tutor, by all means, reach out and help! lol

I'm hoping to break the pivotal 700+ score mark on the GMAT - but I have yet to take a practice CAT to see where i'm at (I'm assuming I'm fairly low - given my long break from college). Again, if anyone has a preferred practice GMAT CAT that will best indicate an accurate level, please let me know.

Again, I appreciate any guidance or assistance anyone on here can provide. Thank you.

Hello,
My name is Alessandro and I'm an italian working in retail in South America.
I came about this forum searching on google "How to get a 700", some topic related to that and now here I am.
I studied international science and diplomacy in Italy, and now I'm aiming to pass through the admission process! I have being studying for the GMAT for 6 months, with Kaplan test prep full optional. was scoring a 650 average on so I decided to take the real test, it was today by the way. But no, i'm not here to show what skills are needed to get a 700, since I have scored a 610, that I'm rather proud of! It is anyway somewhat far from my objective score, looks like i'll stick with you guys for a while! Thank you for keeping this forum adjourned it really has great contents, resources and features for all GMATters.
If any of you have any suggestions I'll take them all onboard,
thanks again!

I would recommend you to take E-gmat verbal course especially if a non-native speaker. As for preferred practice CATs i recommend you GMAT Prep, this tool is free and you can buy two more CATs. I think that these CATs reflect exam properly!

Hello! My name is Myron, a BA in Finance graduate. I am working here in Phoenix and I plan on taking GMAT some time next year. I landed 650 when I took the exam before so I need to work harder to get at least 50 more points. My target school is Columbia. Kudos to Praetorian and Bob for doing a wonderful job with the site.

Hi,

I go by Pingala, from Los Angeles. I have a long and sordid journey with the GMAT. I work in the non-profit world, but had started a small business venture on the side as an alternative income source. The professional work I did lended itself well to law school, but after a year of studying the law it was apparent that I should have stuck to the business trajectory I had earlier plotted out. Except it was thwarted by my first attempt with the GMAT.

See I suck at taking standardized tests and I am a mediocre student. If I get really curious about something , I become compulsive and totally own the subject. Its why I speak three languages, I love traveling and enjoy learning about new cultures, and why I am taking Mandarin courses at a local community college. After I left law school I was aimless and had no desire to go back to non-profit work nor did I really now what to do next. There just was no plan for failure. So I have been trying to get back on some track for the past two years. I actually want to be a productive member of society again, but with a substantive skill set beyond my BA non-profit experience.

I eventually settled on the MBA route and took the GMAT but had another abysmal performance. Since that second test though I have traveled some more, was invited to sit on a non-profit board, did some leadership trainings, wrote things that got published, and got a chance to meet some entrepreneurs who really inspired me and gave a perspective that there was a way to bring together my "feel good/ do good" personality with the business side of things. Now that I have a bit more clarity, I feel like my attempt at taking the GMAT and pursuing business school won't be abortive. (I have tried studying for the GMAT on two separate occasions, even signed up to take a the test next week!)

I realize my problem is that I am stabbing in the dark alone. I am not approaching this test in a way that breaks it down and lays bare its components. I also have allowed the social pressures of performing and figuring out my life to distract me from the actual focus of getting the mechanics of the test down. Because of this I have been working in my own silo, away from anyones watchful gaze, in the hopes that my failure (or success) were mine alone. This last part has been really agonizing because the whole idea of being isolated and alone in this struggle depresses me.

So here I am, signing up for this forum, putting myself out there for support, feedback and critical evaluation (possibly..maybe?).

Hi,
I had joined gmatclub so long ago and had been just an infrequent visitor and observer. I have an Electrical Engineering degree and a two year work experience. I've been planning to start my GMAT prep for the last 6 months or so but couldn't make myself focus. This I consider the first step for a successful study plan...I name it Plan #246

I relate to most of what Pingala has mentioned so won't repeat the part of being in silo while taking this GMAT bull by the horn

I am based out of Bangalore with 9 years of experience, currently with a leading global investment bank.

In relationship with GMAT from 2009 when I took it first time. Last attempt was in 2013 n overall 3 attempts

Recently started warming up again by attempting verbal questions on this forum.

Looking fwd to active participation n interaction here to regain the focus n cut down on distractions in life.

Targeting for Q1 2016

Happy to get in touch with similar profiles locally and with others on this forum

Cheers

Hello!

My name is Mari and I have been studying for a couple of months for the GMAT. My test is in the middle of January. I am looking to start applying to schools such as USC, UCLA, UCI, Pepperdine and Foster next year. I have been out of college for quite a while and am definitely having trouble getting back to the books. I have also always struggled with math which is killing me! I am looking for any study groups to join as I feel that would help immensely! Helppp!

Hello Everyone,
My name is Muhammad Ismail and I am victim of GMAT's wrath lol. I am currently scheduled to take the GMAT on 23rd of December with target score between 550-600 . You all might laugh at my pathetic targets but considering my current situation 500 looks like a 600 to me now as I am already performing terrible in KAPLAN tests . 440, 480 and guess what ? Another 480. I will post my dilemma on different post. However its refreshing to see many people being supportive and helpful on this forum. I'll be happy to meet you all.
