I have just finished applying to several schools, and just caught a verb tense typo in one of my essays. The rest of my essays are kosher. Funny thing was that I had three different folks read them, including two coworkers, and my dad and none of us caught it til now... I hope this isn't something ...

So I'm probably in the small minority, but I actually used LSAT books to practice for the GMAT. Somebody brought that up in another thread on here. It worked well for me, at least.

How diverse are the admissions offices themselves?

Given the emphasis on diversity that admissions offices (especially at top universities) have put on their incoming student bodies, I was just wondering, how diverse are the admissions offices themselves? For example, I would imagine that a diverse admissions office might be better suited to promoti...

Price is no object but I just don't want to have to go through 2 or 3 different sets of books. By all means, go through as many different books and sources as possible. Trust, but verify, I always say. Trust the books written by the experts, but always go with different sources to be sure. You neve...

I always recommend presenting the school you are actually applying to as the best school. Meaning if you apply to Harvard and Duke, don't tell Duke you applied to Harvard, because they will know that if you get in you are gonna go to Harvard...

Pros: You are sure that you will not be wasting time on non GMAT type LSAT questions. Cons: You would ...

I would recommend just doing math practice sets. Maybe 10 problems at a time, and then check your answers. And then do 10 more problems. Do the practice sets again after a week. Keep practicing the math that you see in the book, and focus on getting better at those problems. Chances are, you'll see ...

Personally, I like to do untimed problem sets until I feel fairly confident on the actual test. There's enough to stress out on the GMAT, and you don't need time pressure to be one of them. After you get plenty of R&R to recuperate, I would recommend doing untimed math practice sets out of the prep ...
