Hey gang,

I'm currently a professional in a management role. I'm looking to step into an executive position in the future, so I've decided to go back to school and get my MBA. I just had a baby and will be taking some parental leave (I have good benefits at work and get topped up for 10 weeks -- I love equality!) which will give me time to study.

Some words of advice for the younger people: Don't drink your face off in university otherwise you'll have to go back to school in your mid thirties after you have a wife and kids! Trust me, this is not the easy way to do things...

Best of luck to all on whatever path you've chosen.

Hey everyone :)

I am a newbie here too. I came across this site when I was just doing some research on B-schools, the GMAT etc. After having followed a few threads, I must say that I have really learnt a lot more about the GMAT than I would ever have if I had not come across GMAT Club :-D.

As for me, I am currently an undergraduate student in Singapore. I wish to one day enter a good B-school to complete my MBA. But, it's a long way now with more than a year of my university life still left. And also, I'd have to get a decent amount of work experience (~3-5 years) to actually be considered for these B-schools.

Hope to get myself acquainted with more of the members here :)

And a Happy 2010 :lol:

Welcome! Note that some schools accept early career MBA's. In fact, three Ivies have programs (Harvard, Yale, Cornell (not really advertised but I know someone who began as an undergrad, worked, and then returned to finish the MBA)).

Thanks a lot for the information. After having read your post, I searched for these programs and found out more about them :) . Just one clarification, you were meaning a program similar to that of HBS' 2+2 program right?

Correct. Stanford also encourages college seniors to apply: http://www.gsb.stanford.edu/mba/admissi ... niors.html

Hello all,

Just joined this community since I finally decided to start studying for the GMAT seriously. Have 2+ years of experience with Accenture doing IT consulting but want to transfer over to the investment side. Have an internship opportunity in China with a PE firm in March, but want to get the GMAT out of the way before I leave. I have roughly over a month to study for the test (end of feb 2010). I have all the generic study materials people have listed, but let me know if you found anything unique that especially helped you. Target score is 700+ (preferably 740+).

Beneficial materials will depend on the ground you need to cover. I'd encourage you to check out debriefs for 700+ scores as well as threads on error logs. An error log will help you identify what to focus on. Enjoy China...World's Fair is coming up soon.

Hi All! I have a BBA in Healthcare Management and have total 6 years of experience (2 years full-time) in the health care industry. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a GPA of 3.75/4.0 in a private school in Chicago. I have not taken the GMAT however I'm scheduled to take it on Feb. 20th. My goal is to get at least 680 however currently the highest that I've done in the MGMAT CAT is 470. Is there hope? In efforts to get my score up, I've been studying OG 12th ed. I finished the error log for PS and on my way to finishing the error log for the DS. In addition, I'm studing Manhattan word translation GMAT strategy, dipping in various information and test from Kaplan GRE and Princeton GMAT.

I also plan on applying primarily in OSU Fisher College with a concentration in Entrepreneurship and Finance. I'm open to any suggestions/comments so feel free to leave one.

Hi Club,

I Googled my way over to the site and happily registered to the forums after taking a look at the community here. You guys seems very supportive of each other, and there is a ton of info for me to sift through as I begin developing a study plan. I suspect this means I'll be spending a lot of time on here with you all in the future - looking forward to it! As for me, I'm currently an undergrad in college. I've been thinking ahead and decided it might be wise to get this beast over with before I have even less spare time to work with.

Hello,

GMAT Club discovered me on Twitter, and I followed.

I am actually halfway finished with my professional MBA with a specialization in applied management. I have been a restaurant manager with a medium sized Midwest based QS/FS Restaurant for five years. I enjoy management, but really like the mentoring and strategy side better than operations management. However, my job is to convert strategic goals into tactical reality, as such I am not encouraged to comment on current corporate strategy.

I am taking the GMAT in order to gain admissions to a PhD program in Strategic Management, hopefully at Krannert out of Purdue University. My target score is at least a 750.

After perusing this forum for a little over a month I thought I would intro myself. Just started studying for the GMAT after thinking about doing it for a few years now. My background is very checkered- Ive got a masters in economics but I dont do financial analysis- so I have about 8 years of work experience in mostly policy analysis (US and international) and economic development as well as business/marketing plan writing and consulting for SMBs. Currently I freelance corporate CI. The last few years have been awful on my career- heres a hint, DONT get into intl RE development right before a global downturn- so Im looking to finally move firmly into one field- preferably either market research or high-end decision analysis (with a helping of entrepreneurship and strategy). Im mostly interested in UK/European programs, although there is one school sitting 1.5 miles up the road that would be a good fit as well.

First practice test was only a 540- but I had really only studied a bit from the Princeton Review book. Obviously aiming for the upper 600s!

Hi everybody,

Already discovered this page several months ago, but did not yet start with my prep. I am an Int. Business student from Germany (however with American roots), looking out for some top notch business schools throughout Europe (somehow uncommon in this forum) to do my Masters degree. From now on I will have full 2 months of time for preperation, before my semester starts and I hope this is sufficient to get 700+. Concerning the books, I think I have the full package (KAPLAN - GMAT Premier, GMAC - GMAT Review 12th edition, Powerscore - GMAT verbal bible, KAPLAN - GMAT math workbook).
I will start with an online test and take the diagnostic tests from the GMAC book (or KAPLAN???). From there I will follow your suggested strategies and hope to finally reach my goal. Thank you for all the effort you put in this page and I will definetely be present over the next 2 months to exchange ideas.

Would be great if you would commend on on my time schedule of two months and if I should be fine with my prep-literature.

Thank you

Overall sounds good - you may not have enough time to go through all of the materials you have amassed, but I would not worry about that - half of what you have is enough for a 700 score if you invest time into it and not just flip pages for the sake of progress. I assume you have seen this post: gmat-study-plan-for-gmat-novices-start-your-gmat-journey-80727.html but just in case putting it here.

2 months can be tough to get more than 100 points of improvement - keep that in mind when you take a diagnostic test.
