Hello all,

I've lurked on this board for a few months now, and read much of the helpful advice posted on this board as I was studying for the GMAT. I must say that this is a remarkable site with lots of great information. Anyway, I was hoping some of you could help me out as to what to do now that I have taken the GMAT for the first time and did not get close to the score I want.

Like many of you, I am shooting for a 700 to help get me into a Top 15 business school. I don't necessarily need to keep taking this until I get a 700, but nothing lower than 650-660, because as you all know, a score lower than this and the math of acceptance rates starts working against you significantly.

In order to accomplish this, I seem to be one of the few here who went with the Route of a Princeton Review Course. The course met twice a week, 3 hours a class, for a month, starting In early August. As part of the course, they provided us with the OG 11, their own book which the classes were taught out of, and a huge amount of online questions, study information and examinations. In class we went through strategies and problems over the course of the month. There was a ton of homework problems assigned, from online questions to doing most of the Official Guide to other materials. I did most of it, but working a full time job prevented me from doing absoultely all of it. You took 5 online exams as part of the course. For me, they all varied between 580-640. When the course ended I also took the 2 GMAT Prep official exams, and got a 650 and a 690. I really thought I could break 650, and had a shot at 700.

Obviously, I was wrong. I am pretty good in math, and was shocked at how low my math score was. I really should be able to score into the mid or high 40's. My highest practice math was 48. Verbal I started at around 30 and PR helped me to get into the mid 30's but no higher.

Anyway, I have done a lot of work for the class, taken 7 practice exams, did lots of the official guide and other PR materials, and obvioulsy i did not get near the score i want. So now I feel a little bit stuck. What should I do next? How do i get the math and verbal higher? I was hoping to get this done in time for ROund 1 Apps but now this is not looking likely.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you all!

Keep working at math and do the exam again ASAP, your math scores seems to be variable. I've had students who vary a lot, and you may be one of them. Practise DS, and participate in the forum rather than lurk
