Hi Jon, a great first post to start on the forum!!!

I must say that you had a very strong applications structure as you got an invite from Booth with a relatively low gmat score. I believe if you go past 650 some how & repeat you applications strategy next fall, you can get into Booth or in stuff like Georgetown or McCombs. If I wer you, my morale would be sky high after the Booth invite & I would have gone for one more attempt to cross 650 mark.

Best of luck & keep us posted.

Thank you for the encouraging words. I was truly honored to have received the interview invite from Booth and I agree in using it as momentum as I work to raise my GMAT score. My question is what approach to take? I have tried Veritas twice and while their instruction and books are top notch I think perhaps switching it up with another test prep source could be beneficial. I have gone through almost all of OG 12 but enough time has lapsed that I wouldn't remember specific problems. I did purchase the gmatclub test bank but never really went through those like I needed. Considering MGMAT and Knewton...

I think a best course of action starting out again is to spend ample time understanding my weaknesses and focusing more on them rather the areas I am comfortable with. Amazing after so much time spent on this exam to fall victim to the same pitfalls. I think going way back to fundamentals is needed...

Thanks again!

Knewton offers a 50 point money back guarantee, so that's a cool offer. Going back to fundamentals after being appeared in 3 gmat attempts, is not a good idea in my opinion. Just dont waste your time in thinking too much, define a final strategy for your last attempt & go for it.

Best of luck.
