Hi tbrume,

For those GMATers who might be considering contacting you, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What materials have you used?
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) What is your exact Test Date?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hi tbrume,

With your current Test Date, you have less than 4 weeks of study time remaining. Unfortunately, raising a 550 to a 650+ in that timeframe is likely too difficult of a goal to be considered realistic. If you can accept a lower score than your stated goal, then you need to define what you consider acceptable; if you cannot accept a score lower than 650, then you might want to consider pushing back your Test Date.

1) On what date did you take that CAT? And did you take the FULL CAT (including the Essay and IR sections)?
2) What are the exact application deadlines for the Schools that you're considering?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
