You're right. I still don't know why the GMAT has been so conservative about including high difficulty level questions on the OG so far.
Possibly because the GMAC doesn't want to reveal their best questions to the candidates and also because they want to cater to all types of students

Fred, what did you do in the last week of your GMAT ? I've been scoring 740 till the last week but yesterday I took a practice test and got a 690. I'm shocked at my performance! In the last one week, I took 2 practice tests. Don't overstress yourself in the last 1 week. Just relax in the last 1-2 w...

awesome score buddy.. You have the perfect split between verbal and quant and you are good to go..What should I do for CR ? I'm facing a lot of difficulty in CR For CR, just try to simplify questions into easier language. That worked really for me in high difficulty level questions. Otherwise i'd s...

Awesome score! Congrats. How were your MGMAT and GMATPrep mock scores? And how tricky did you find the IR section (say esp MSR)? Thanks, Most of my MGMAT scores were between 720-750. I scored a 740 on GMATPREP1 and 760 on GMATPREP2.. IR section was manageable and I although I didn't prepare for it ...

I can absolutely relate to your reasons for going for an MBA. I'm stuck in a boring job and just want to get the hell out of here.
Congratulations on the amazing fete and thanks for sharing your story.

I have started with Aristotle CR Grail and like the book. I was wondering how difficult are the 100 practice questions given at the end ?

I also plan to take the GMAT around the third week of December. Though will be a bit stretched to meet the deadlines but I really want to score well and I don't think that I can do well right now so you shouldn't be late i think

Sometimes people do well on the actual GMAT inspite of poor performance on practice tests but the word here is "sometimes" i.e. it doesn't happen often. I'd rather take the GMAT a little later than end up taking the test on the hope that a miracle will happen

As long as you get a 5-6 on IR I think it shouldn't be a problem at least this year. From next year, a low score can be an issue though.
I agree with David's first point though.

With respect to your question no. 2, you have to select five schools where you will be able to send your GMAT score free of cost. You will be able to send your scores later also(anytime in the 5 year window from the time you take the test) but you will be charged around $29 for sending per school.
