Retrevie essays from GMAC?

I was curious if an expert or someone who knows for sure could comment if it's possible to retrieve your essays from the GMAC? I did well on mine and my mom is an English teacher who would like to see my score.

Nah there's nothing you can do. Everyone has a reason they didn't do as well on the GMAT as they would have liked. Some are test-center related, some are time related (demanding job). Some are because they were last picked in kickball as a kid. At the end of the day you get what you get. I was in a ...

Yeah this GMAT is a struggle, I posted a review of my GMAT experience as well, just finished up! That's a great effort, way to pick yourself back up off the floor after a bad test and continue to fight!

Sooo +EV there haha. Ok Rastis, the first thing you need revolves around belief and confidence. One thing I did not mention in my long post was that I am far far from a stellar student. I remember failing multiple math courses in college, failing out of school more then once, and struggling to gradu...

Thanks guys, wait -- applications..? I thought the whole reason to rip 6.0's on the essays was so you could sub-contract out your applications to company's that specialize in writing them, and the schools can't question them because you lean off your 6.0s?? Hahah, jk. Yeah the would + verb root is b...

Dude I am in the exact same boat, I have taken it twice now with a 590 and then a shocking 580. After a month more of brutal punishing studying. I have been routinely scoring in the mid 600s and occasionally higher. My last 3 verbal sections in particular were in the 85-95 percentile range yet I sco...

6.0 essay on 1st try -- contemplating SKIP on 2nd..

Hey friends. I was fortunate to achieve a 6.0 on my 1st effort on GMAT essays but faltered on the Math and Verbal sections and scored lower than I was capable of. I know the GMAC is deleting one of the essays for this new Integrated Reasoning section or whatever. So I feel that if there ever were a ...

Resolve the Paradox : Diagramming Strategies

Hey friends, I wanted to ask anyone who reads this about their strategy for diagramming Resolve the Paradox Questions. Since the Paradox is usually very apparent, do you not diagram at all? Paraphrase each sentence? or construct some short of logic chain with each side of the paradox on one side? Pe...
