Hi,

In order to give a little boost to my pro career, I decided to take over the GMAT. I have already taken the GRE a few years ago. All my studies have been made in another language than english, so GMAT is even more challenging. I aim 700+

I'll keep you updated with my progress. :-D

Hi all
I must be the oldest member to join the club, yet with the least amount of experience. I've been globetrotting so much that i can't remember where i am from. My BSc (EECE) is so old that it has been formally declared as expired. Why gmat? Well, i have one kid in college doing health science and already complaining how difficult it is. Another one is joining him in a few months. Both are home schooled and both think I should use my brain for something else after they are gone. I am weak in every area and BA is not my cup of tea, but i have to push the limit and break away from the comfort zone. I figured there is no better way than this to show them not to quit no matter how hard it is. it's ok to fail when you give your best, but not ok to quit before trying :wink:
I'm sure there is a school out there willing to accept poor ol' me :?

Morning everyone.

I'm a sophomore at NYU undergrad and I'm looking for help on how to get my career going. I plan on taking the GMAT (and a couple of series tests and CFA level I) by senior year. This way, I have 5 years after college to work and then apply for business schools. I was on a pre-med track but then decided that my interest and ability in the sciences, especially Orgo, were not very good. (As my grades indicate) I took a few econ and finance classes, got A's, and here I am. I'm glad orgo was as hard as it was because it helped me realized that the only reason I wanted to be a doctor was for the job security.

I notice that there aren't a lot of my type (sophomores) around here... I suppose it is very early to start but why not? I know I have time now and I can't say whether the free time will be there in the future.

Right now, I'll probably just lurk cause I don't have much insight to... well, anything. (compared to everyone else with like 5+ years of work experience) I'm interning at Merrill right now and I hope to be a financial analyst/trader one day. My dream is to sit in front of a bloomberg terminal and make trades all day. :-D (Sad isn't it?)

hey guys. Name is David. Trying to take the GMAT's. Failed pretty hard yesterday while taking it. Got a 430 :roll: :roll: Was pretty pissed and was up all night and happened to run into this site. Looks good. Will definitely stay and see if I can benefit from it. Planning on taking it again sometime in the late summer. If anyone is local to Washington DC or VA lemme know maybe we can study together since I everyone I know is either not taking it or trying to avoid taking it right now. Guess I'm just bull-hearted and want to do everything early :-D Anyways my target score is somewhere between 580-660. Not insanely hard to accomplish a lot of people told me but coming from a 430...i got a long hike in front of me. So I need to get all the help I can get!

Hi Everyone! :wave:

I graduated from a state university with a pretty low GPA (2.8) and majored in Acct'g & Financial Analysis. I'm looking to contribute and learn as much as I can from the forum. I haven't started my review (I will when my question gets answered about which Kaplan book to buy and when my MGMAT books get here!) but I did take a diagnostic and got a 410 Q27 V20. I have very poor math skills and English isn't my first language but in spite of all of that, I need about a 700 to get into a top MBA program. I would like to matriculate 2011.

I haven't targeted any schools yet as I want to see where my GMAT score improves/settles. I'm interested in studying abroad, however since I'd like to get more of a global experience.

My question before was about which Math book to start with: Kaplan GMAT Math Foundations or Kaplan GMAT Workbook.

Hope to bump into everyone on the boards.

glad you came here first. Please avoid Princeton Review (as a lot of people will tell you the same)...I pretty much dominated the Princeton Review and felt pretty confident and got a little higher than what you got. Overall, I think we're in the same boat...low GPA but still not defeated and still want to play in the bschool game. My hat is off to you for that. kudo's for you. My first recommendation (and I just purchased this book and can already tell it's going to help a lot) is the 12th edition GMAT Official Guide. I believe it will do me wonders in the future when I retake it :-D

Hey,

Just wanted to thank the owners of this forum for creating one of the best platforms for GMAT preparation, application as well as support.

I am yet another Indian IT male with Master's from a US University, bunch of extra curricular as well as community activities. Gave a diagnostic test and scored 680. Need to start preparing now. Surprisingly scored low on Quant (which I plan to work on). SC in verbal has been weak and am working towards improving it. Setting goals every week and determined to take my score to mid 700s. Thanks again.

Hey all,

I found this site off of google. I'm a college senior graduating in May. I was actually planning on going to law school originally, but after taking those exams and going through the entire process for that, I realized that I didn't want to become an attorney. After a career crisis, which lasted around six months, I decided that a MBA is definitely what I want and I'm really excited to get to know more about the GMAT and everyone here.

My goal is a 7xx :]

Hi,

I am another Indian aspiring to get admission to Top B School in US / Europe.. Today is first day of my preparation. I have just given GMATPrep (Quant & Verbal section only) and have scored 650 (Q - 49 / V -30).

Clearly have to work a lot on Verbal as well as revise the basics / fundamentals for improving speed in Quant.

My goal is 750+ in GMAT. Wish we all the best.

Hello, I am a busy working professional who is hoping the MBA will give me a big career boost. I did above average on the verbal first time through but finished it in less than half the time alloted. I know I could get an excellent score if I slowed down. The quant was more challenging. I did above average on the problem solving but was lost on the data sufficiency. I think I get it better after reviewing my answers. Anyway good luck to you all as you prepare.
