How are the classes?

Post Tue Jun 15, 2010 7:26 am
I am still applying but i still remember the phrase "getting in is the easy part". How true is that in B-School? I know many schools have GPA requirements but anyone can share how hard it is compared to grad/undergrad schools? I got a Master Comp Sci and it was ok. I also noticed some schools like Yale dont have a numeric system. thanks

I will be starting MBA. Classes next month and I just have a few questions.
1. Is the test hard?
2. What do I need to brush up on the most.
3. How long are the classes like how many months or does it take before you could take the test?

You'll be fine.

Almost all top-tier b-schools pull people from a variety of backgrounds. One of the effects of that strategy is that the students have a diverse set of strengths, weaknesses, and skills. You will likely be neither the strongest nor the weakest in any one category.

If you have a business, or numerical background it will be easier than average. If not, it will be more difficult than average. Either way, you'll do okay. Hardly anyone fails out.

That said, you're live is about to go into OVERDRIVE!!! That's what people mean when they say getting in is the easy part.

simranbebi, welcome to the BTG forums.
I hope your questions can be better answered in a separate thread in "Research MBA Programs"
http://www.beatthegmat.com/research-mba-programs-f43.html

As for your earlier questions
Register yourself at mba.com, download the GMATPrep.exe and take a diagnostic test.
This is as close it can get on the real test. Thus, you can guage your level of competence, and areas you need to practice. You can see various stories of people who have participated on the forums and got successful on "I Just Beat the GMAT" http://www.beatthegmat.com/i-just-beat-the-gmat-f15.html
Typically 2-3 months of focused practice each day will bring you results. Feel free to try the 60-Day GMAT Study guide once you are familiar with the pattern of GMAT
