I don't think my post was appropriate for this thread as I haven't given my GMAT yet Smile. I hope, soon I will repost my profile on this thread.

No option to delete the post, hence edited it.

Hi,
I am also in the dreaded IIT category. I just returned back from the exam and I got a 740. I know I can do better. I still cannot believe that I screwed up my math section - being a engineer! If I could have written the exam tomorrow I would certainly do it. But thats not the case and I gotto wait 31 days. I don't know if its really worthwhile spending another month studying for 10-20 more points. What do you suggest?

I dont see any point in wasting time trying to improve your score from 740 to 760.. 740 is good enou for nearly any school.. the time would be better spent on your applications...

I concur, 740 is a great score.

Hard core IIM 29 years of age.

Since I have a wife and a baby, I will be applying mostly to 1 yr programs. I'm giving my GMAT for the 3rd time Sad on the 12th of Sep.

Got 590 and a 650 so far.

Hoping to break the 700 barrier this time and get done with the damn thing. I have a stamina problem in the verbal section. I switch off for the last few questions every time and can't seem to be able to do anything about it so far Sad (Any tips?). I have a problem with silly mistakes in the Quant section.

Education:

Mostly international. London GCE O and A levels, Bachelors and Masters in Computer Science in USA.

Work ex:

Had 2 main jobs... both IT and both in the USA, but I've got the advantage of having worked in diverse industries and roles. My first job out of college was at the biggest IT company in the non-profit industry and the second as a consultant in the financial industry.

Goals:

I want a general management degree/degree focussed on operations/IT management.

Took me a loooooooong time to decide on which schools I'd like to apply to. Here's my list. I'm hoping to apply to all these school for the first round. I really hope that my GMAT score gets to 700 so I don't get hurt by a lowish GMAT score.

B-school targets
US
Tepper (CM), MIT (Sloan) and Georgia Tech(my alma mater)

Non-US
INSEAD (first choice overall), ISB, NUS, Oxford (Said), and Cambridge(Judge)
