Hi guys! - Newbie here!

Post Sat May 04, 2013 2:52 pm
Hi, I'm fairly new to this site and just registered recently! I am so happy that I found this GMAT community. It's great to have a support from everyone going through the same experience!

Just a little bit about myself: I finished my Business undergrad from a Canadian university, worked in the oil & gas industry for five years, took a "sabbatical break" of two years so I can teach and travel abroad and now I'm trying to buckle down and get this GMAT out of the way, so here I am friends!

I have no work whatsoever this summer so I'm taking advantage of my life situation and dedicating at least 3-4 months of studying, and gathering all the information as much as I can from all the strategy that people have adopted for the exam. It's been a great help hearing all the inspiring stories of hard work and mental preparation, and I'm looking forward to learning more from this site. Thanks!

JKCM
