Welcome! Take a look at the Verbal forums for sticky posts in there.
Also take a look at this plan: gmat-study-plan-for-gmat-novices-start-your-gmat-journey-80727.html

Hi! I graduated from Cornell with a BS in Environmental Engineering. I went directly into the Army (active duty) upon graduation. I transferred to the Army Reserve about 4 years ago and have since been working in air quality control engineering and water resource engineering.

I'm looking at a few potential options right now:
- MBA in Europe (preferences right now are HEC Paris, Erasmus, Imperial, University College Dublin, IMD, EDHEC, and SDA Bocconi - I know, it's a long list)

- MS in Engineering at Delft University of Technology (Coastal Engineering or Civil Engineering)

- Dual MBA/MS degree, although I haven't quite figured out the options available in Europe for such a program

I took a diagnostic GMAT (cold, haven't opened any books yet) on crack-GMAT today and was scored a 550. Although it indicated that it's a low scoring program, I'm going to take it at face value as a starting point. Can't hurt to study more than necessary, right :wink: My goal is mid 700s, although reading through some of the most recent replies, it sounds like I should potentially aim higher considering how well everyone is doing...a bit more competitive than I expected.

I'm putting together a study plan right now (thus why I logged onto the site) and plan to give myself 3 months to study. If I don't score as high as I'd like, I've set up my schedule to allow myself to take a Veritas prep course in October. Hopefully I won't need it 8-)

I want to second a number of posts on here that this site is awesome. I have already found a bunch of really useful information and look forward to learning and sharing more info over the coming months. Thanks!

Hey folks,

Some background: graduated in '05 from Maryland, and have been working for Congress ever since. I decided this year that I'm going to head back to school for an MBA, because obviously what the private sector needs is an infusion of government efficiency!

I just kicked into high gear on GMAT prep, and this site looks like it'll be extremely useful in studying strategies. I haven't looked at many applications yet but I'm sure the application section of this forum will be great for that as well.

I took my first practice exam (GMAT Prep software) and scored a 710 (43Q, 42V) and realized that it's time for some serious review of high school math. 3:4:5 triangles, 1:1:root2 triangles, I thought I was rid of you forever!

I appreciate all the help I am sure I will receive in the future.

Hi,
My name is Farukh Awais. I have bachelors in Electrical Engineering. I have 7 years of experience in telecom industry. My areas of expertise is Radio Access Network Optimization. I am planning to (IA) give GMAT by december 2010. This site is the number one website to interact, exchange views and ideas about GMAT. Coming from an engineering background, math doesn't trouble me much but the issue is that GMAT feeds on test takers' carelessness. So I am working hard to be as good at PS and DS as possible without making a careless mistake.
I still have a long way to go on verbal part. I am preparing steadily and the idea is to prepare a plan and stick to it. Start by reading the strategy books. MGMAT books are amazing resources. And later on make a point to do at-least 3 RCs, 3 SCs and 3 CRs a day.

Let us keep in touch.

Regards
Farukh

Hi all,

I am Karen and I am currently work in New York for a non profit org. I have a BS in Biomedical Sciences from Univ of Miami & I plan to do my MBA here in New York. I hope to go to NYU and am looking to get a score of 700 plus. My test date is Oct 2nd.

Hope to learn something from you all as well as help others through this great forum to see all of us do great on the GMAT.

Good luck to everyone!

Cheers,
K.

Hey everyone!

My name is Dave and I think this site is fantastic. A very good friend told me about it and I'm glad he did.

As far as my situation, I think its a little unique and I'll be sure to post about it in the relevant forms when I get a chance in the next few days.

Basically, I'm starting law school in the fall and my school offers a JD-MBA program. I got in last year and was able to defer. During that period I came back home (I had been working in NYC for the 2yrs since graduating in 2007) and worked for my family's real estate business (it was suffering due to the economy and I felt like I could be a big help -- it's been an amazing experience). Now, while I still want to study law and work for a law firm right out of school, my mid and long-range plans have changed a little bit. I've seen how a small entrepreneurial enterprise operates and I love it. I'd like to work in bankruptcy/restructuring with a focus on the real estate field. Eventually, I'd like to open up my own investment firm and I think having an MBA would be huge.

So that's the basic outline, I'm going to take the GMAT soon and start the app process too. If there's anyone out there who's sorta in my same position or was, I'd love to get some advice. Otherwise, I'll post any questions I have.

Hi guys,

My name is Adam. I have a bachelor of commerce degree majoring in marketing from UCD, Ireland. I began working with a hedge fund financial services firm (seemed like the thing to do in 2007!) and finished with that company last month after becoming a chartered AI analyst. Looking at several US schools for the 2011 intake. Aiming for the magic 700 mark. Definitely want to pursue MC. I can't wait to get properly stuck into this forum!

Hi my name is Soofia from Texas!!! I'm going to take my GMAT in August...and I have been studying for a few months...but still don't feel ready. I'm hoping this forum will help build my confidence. I really think I will never be ready for the GMAT, but perhaps I just have to take more practice tests. Aiming for 700 but first test I took I only scored 560...yikes.

My background is journalism and I want to take the GMAT to change my career and hopfully start up my own business and pursue a career in HR. Considering getting a JD to understand employment law thoroughly. Not sure if i'll go through with this if the LSAT is as scary as the GMAT for me.

Wish me luck!

Hello everyone,

I'm currently in the U.S. Navy, stationed in the D.C. area. I have an undergaduate degree in business management from a small school in Illinois (3.3gpa). I considered a Master's in Healthcare Administration for a long time, but finally decided to go with an MBA because of the variety of opportunities it offers. I would like to go to UMaryland (Smith's) or Georgetown (McDonough). Since I still have around 3 years left on my enlistment, I picked those schools because they are in the area and they offer part time/evening programs. I'd like to go to Georgetown because it's ranked higher than Maryland, but it also takes another year to complete. I'm planning on taking my GMAT in the next few months. I'm just working on getting my fundamentals together before I really dive head in on studying. I am shooting for 700+ on the GMAT. What kind of study time have people put in that did score above 700 I wonder?

This website is very insightful and I look forward to interacting with other members on this site.

Cheers!

Thanks for having me!
