Hi all,

Was introduced to this forum by a friend. I've been lurking around for 2 weeks which is about the same time that I started my GMAT prep. I'm targetting Fall 2011 intake and I've allocated myself 2-3 months for the prep. I took the Knewton CAT and scored 520 and a week later I took the MGMAT CAT test and scored 550. I've remained hopeful that I can achieve my target of at least 700 by reading the various inspirational post. Hopefully, I'll be able to make tremendous improvement through the various tips, strategies and help available in this forum.

:)

This is one of the better forums out there, I like how the people running the site actively post and contribute. Applying this fall to enter next year, using the forums mostly to work on gmats for now, though I have started reading on tips for the application process and found those helpful.

I'm Mark, I came across this forum through the wonders of google as a result of my GMAT information searching.

A bit about me- Graduated from IL State in Business Management- Entrepreneurship last May. I'm 23. Have started to job search and begin building my work experience. Since jobs have largely been tough to come by so far I have made getting the GMAT out of the way a much bigger priority.. in an effort to be starting business school before I am 30.

Unfortunately still trying to figure out what I want to do with my career. Other info- into things like Comedy, Fantasy Baseball, Chicago sports, lots of other stuff.

Hi to you all. I have talked about getting my MBA for the past few years, since I got my Bachelors (George Fox Univ, Newberg, OR) in 2006. I was really hesitant until a few weeks ago, when my wife told me that I should go for it. I am looking at online programs, since there is relatively nothing close to me. I have recently been relocated to Charlotte, NC and have no intentions of moving. I have focused my two schools to Penn State and Indiana. I have also looked at Arizona State, and Florida. I took a practice test from Veritas and got a 520, I figured it was pretty good, considering, I literally just sat down and took it. Now that I understand the test, and with a little studying, I will easily be able to get it to 600, hopefully higher. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. If any one has any information on Penn State or IU-Kelly Direct, I would be interested in it.

I see the Forums setup by Business school, but it would be nice to have them in some sort of order so that you can find a particular school easier. Just a thought.

So far this site has helped a lot.

Hi Cabhorn,
If you want to find a particular school, I would suggest using a filtered search. The search function on this site has quite a few features. If you do a search, you can set the filter by what sub-category you want (such as only "Business School and MBA), include the school you are interested in, and presto-chango you have your result.

Hi everyone. I thought I would introduce myself.

I should be on here quite a bit in the coming months as I retire from the CFA forum and move over here. I'm working towards a 720-740 score, so I have my work cut out for me. I just took the first GMATPrep test and scored a 690, with 44 quant, 40 verbal. I was quite surprised at how high my verbal was (fluke?) and how poor my quant was. I plan on about 3 months of study, fairly hardcore. See you all on the forums

Welcome to GMAT club!

Quite a few people who have passed the CFA1 and 2 are usually slammed with a surprising score on the GMAT. Not unusual. I think the tests require different skills and thou you may be good at math, not necessarily GMAT math. Should not be hard though to get up to 49 in a month. Good luck!

Cheers Guys!

I would like to make my formal introduction.

My name is Vlad. I have been a member since 2007 (My sophomore year of undergrad) and looking to get more involved within the GMAT community. I'm a business major with international and US banking experience and I recently graduated from a small liberal arts college.

I decided to start studying for the GMATs since job prospects are slim to none. Even though the GMATs they are a long ways away, I feel like its better to start now than later, and it will help me keep my math up. My goal is set pretty high up since I want to go to a Top 20 school. I'm going to take my practice GMAT tomorrow to see how I do and decide my study plan for the next couple of years.

Looking forward to becoming a member of this great community! If anyone is in the same position as me, I would love to chat about it. Send me a pm!

Thanks guys.

Hello Eveyone,

My name is Monis and I am from Dubai, UAE. I graduated in 1999 with a BSc Business Administration major from Embry Riddle Aeronautical Univ in Florida with a GPA 4.00. Since its been a while, I need to refresh a lot of the basic math, grammar and reading concepts as the GPA does not lead automatically to a good GMAT. Especially since it was 11 years ago.

I have grown to love the GMATclub website alot. When I was hunting for the right books to buy, I came across this website and was so relieved to see all the different plans and book bundles suggested here. I spent maybe 5-6 hours deciding before ordering the books on Amazon. And also buying a few second hand locally.

I have already given the GMAT twice but have gotten a pretty low score. And am now determined to take part the GMAT like a Spatan with discipline, focus and determination. Therefore I look towards you guys for Kudos and HUHA to keep me motivated. I am aiming at a 750+ level score as I plan to apply to the Top 10 US schools.

So here is my hello to you all. I am putting together a plan right now and may post it to get some feedback from the forum members.
