Hi everyone,

I found this forum through Google, and been active specially in the SC section for a while already. Interestingly, I came across this thread only recently.
I'm working as the finance director of an NGO in Central Asia. I've been working as accountant before, and doing other related finance tasks, but being a director I realized I urgently need to develop other skills, that's why I will try to get to bschool.
As for now I'm studying for TOEFL and GMAT verbal. Next month I'll start GMAT quant. Originally I planned to write GMAT in August, but closer to the date I'll see if I'm prepared enough to score above 700. Actually my preparation is going slow since I don't have enough time to study.
If I can't prepare well for this application season, then I will wait one more year, even though I'm getting a little old. But I don't have enough money to pay for the degree, and even when I have several people who could cosign for a loan, working outside the US or Europe it's unreal to return the loan. That's why I will study only if I get scholarships. And yes, for that you need a really good application, or you have to apply to a lower ranked school. I'm still not discouraged, and there is a small possibility that my organization will input a portion of the cost, so I can still continue with the plan of getting an MBA.
Good luck to all of you as you try to achieve your goals.

Hi friends,

I just recently found the GMAT Club website and am excited to be a part of the community (it reminds me of the College Confidential community I was a part of trying to navigate the undergraduate admissions process). My background is a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania (that's the College of Arts and Sciences, not Wharton!), and two years out of college in management and strategy consulting for the government and private sector clients. I took my first GMAT on May 8, 2010 to set a baseline and scored 700 (45Q/40V/5.5AWA). With client work taking a front seat, my audacious study plans turned into about 5-10 hours of glancing at sample questions in the OG the week beforehand.

I am "happy" with my score given the effort that I put in, but am pretty disappointed in myself for not preparing much more and doing better on the first go-around; also I scored much lower on Quant and much higher on Verbal than I anticipated. Math has always been my strong suit and I am looking to improve that score immensely. I will be taking the exam again this summer and my goal is to boost my score past 750, applying to MBA programs this fall 2010. I'm looking forward to the other resources and community members available on the website, and to finally set in place a true study and application plan.

Hi I'm HCB (initials for my name), and I'm a newbie. I think that GMATClub is a very helpful resource! Thank you.

About me: I took the GMAT once, did OK, and will probably take it one more time this summer.

Would love to go to a top tier school anywhere in the U.S. of A and ultimately would like to work in consulting/marketing :)

Love dogs and CBS's The Big Bang Theory - Sheldon Cooper is my hero! He probably would score 800 on the GMAT :)

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 :]


Belated Welcome :)
Thank you for the suggestions and your input!

Well, next week I will start it all: GMAT, TOEFL and essays. Hopefully I would be able to get everything together and apply to 6 schools in the period between 1st of October and 15th of November 2010. 2 of these schools are really good, and 4 are also really good but I would still choose the first two if I had the choice.
I took GMAT twice before in 2006, the first time it was 520 (with some 2 weeks preparation), the second time (in 2 months) with Kaplan I got 690 (very well balanced Q48 and V38). I didn't know about this site at that time, but now luckily I found it and have already absorbed a lot of information, and I am just starting. After lurking for a short while here I decided that I can aim on 700+ with proper books, and I got the Manhattan GMAT 8 books for a start. They will arrive on Friday and next week, and I will start the journey.

Hey everyone. I've only recently found this site, but so far the amount of information has been amazing. I am an Army Officer currently deployed to Afghanistan. I have about 6 more months before I come home so that's 6 months of GMAT study time. I'm shooting for 800 of course, but 750 will do :) When I get back I have about a year left of service before I hope to start my MBA. Thanks again to everyone on this site for their support.

Welcome Jeremy!
Thank your service - good luck with your prep; please don't hesitate to PM me if any questions. I usually don't provide PM support but I had a classmate who got called back out of the BSchool for a year in Iraq - he came back a different man :( , so anything I can help with - more than happy to.

Hello All,

My name is Neville, and I have decided that I will pursue an MSF. I found this site through Google, and I must say I have fallen in love. I would like to thank everyone I will meet on my journey in advance (for helping me reach my goal), I also hope along the way I can contribute to this site in a positive manner. I graduated from the University of Central Florida with a B.S. in Finance in '07, and I would like to get into a B-School as far away from Central Florida as possible lol. My target score is 730, as NYU is my dream, I realize from reading numerous posts that this is not a task to be taken lightly. I have set aside 3 months to prepare for the test M-F 1.5hrs a night and Saturday 3-4hrs Sundays off, I hope I have devoted enough study time but I assume I can just "change it up" if need be. Once again thank you all for your help and for putting together a wonderful forum.

P.S If you are taking the GMAT anytime soon I wish you all the best and I hope you hit your target :-)

Verbal is a little different, I did pretty well on the critical reasoning section, but my RC and SC were terrible and I think I just need some refreshers on techniques to get through the questions.

Hi everyone

I'm aiming to further my study in Finance next year and will be sitting the GMAT in two or three months. During the last few months I've been preparing for my IELTS and CFA exams. So right now I'm in the mood to study. I have tried some CAT tests and it seems like my problem is the verbal part, as I'm not a native user of English. I got 760 on GMATPrep with no preparation (Q51, V42) so my goal right now is to get a higher verbal score and to get as near as 800 as possible.

Hey all,

I graduated last year with a B.A. in economics. At this point I'm pretty sure I want to get an MBA, but definitely need a few years of experience before I apply. I just signed up, although I browsed the forums while putting my GMAT study plan together (I took it a month ago to get it out of the way) and plan on sharing what I learned from the experience.

Hi,

I'm from the UK, in my mid 30s with a background in computer programming (mainly telecoms and new media) and I'm hoping to go for one of the better UK business schools, ideally Cambridge Judge.

I'm looking for a GMAT score of 750+ which hopefully should be achievable, I followed the OG instructions and did the GMATPrep test 1 first thing as a baseline (not having found this site and its advice to leave this for later at that point) and got a 720 (Q47:V41). Lots of sentence correction work here I come!

Welcome on board!
720 to 750 does not sound like a long route, esp if you have not done much prep before you took the GMAT Prep. If you get 2 more points on Q and V, you will be around 750-760. Anything more than Q50 and V43/44, will be 770
