The 10 Best GMAT Stories of 2011 – Number 2
"If asked for one strategy of my score I would say I was eating GMAT, drinking GMAT, sleeping GMAT!" Such commitment can only lead to a stellar score from mba_from_iim, who went from a 610 to a 760! He'd set the more modest goal of a 700, given that he was on the older side of applicants (34 years old), but in the end all that determination and effort paid off and mba_from_iim eventually scored much better than that! Read his full story here: From 610 to 760(q49,v44,5.5) - still can't believe it! We particularly liked the way his debrief starts, where he explains how he didn't expect to score so well on the GMAT:
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever see myself writing this post. Having scored a meager 610 in my first GMAT attempt, all I wanted was a score of 700+ given my age of 34 years.
But I guess it was the hard work I had put in and definitely luck in terms of the experimental questions made me reach the score of 760.
Congrats, mba_from_iim! We wish you the best with the application process! For the rest of you GMAT hopefuls, check out his full debrief here: From 610 to 760(q49,v44,5.5) - still can't believe it!.
