I've been studying on and off for six months.

I thought I'd been making really good progress as of late.

I've been at it hard now for the past couple weeks, and tonight I wrote a practice exam (the free mgmat one) and I scored a 480. I'm totally rattled. My GMAT is booked for 2 weeks from today. I feel like I haven't even cracked a book.

I have an admissions consultant, and am aiming at a top school. I don't want to take the chance and apply in round three, and R2 applications are all due shortly after the New Year.

Sigh.

What is the score split? Was this your 1st test? How and what did you study in the last 6 months? Give us all the details so that we could help you
2 weeks is a short time to improve on your skills in RC and CR but Quant and SC is something you can improve a lil bit. MGMAT math is more difficult than the actual GMAT so your 480 is not as bad as it looks.

What was your split score? Which areas do you score poorly on (eg, RC, DS...)?

Maybe I'm just freaking out. Nice though, things like geometry, there was but ONE question on; also nice to receive about 15 questions "express in terms of" types. Just aggravating to the hilt. An even dismal split in quant and verbal.

I've used MGMAT guides, OG study guide, Sackmans Gmat review material.

Just a thousand things going through my head tonight. Should I give it all hell like I've been doing, and write it in two weeks, see how I do? If I do poorly should I fly across the country and take the MGMAT 2 week crash course in NY for mega bucks so I can try to un-realistically churn out all of my apps in 2 weeks after I re-write it.
Should I give it hell and if I don't do well, put myself in a Jan 01 7 week class room course? Should I see my family doctor about some addaral? Do I keep studying, take it and if I don't like my score try the Knewton online 50pt guarantee? I don't accept failure very well, I don't use the word in my vocabulary.

Ugh.

The deadline are only in the 1st week of Jan. You could postpone the GMAT.
Ask a friend of yours who got a really good score to sit with you and solve a paper. He will be able to tell you where you are slow, wrong, etc. Write a GMAT Prep test. That will give you a better idea about where you stand. Then check if the score comes around your target schools' average score. Then decide whether to postpone/take the crash-course, etc. There are alot of stories similar to yours here.. go through them, PM those folks and you will feel better.
