Overall, you've hit all the points admissions would need you to hit, but it's rather lengthy. If I had this letter to edit, I'd cut about 40% of the text, just to facilitate communication, and do a close read to be sure that your written English is 100% correct: if you're writing a letter to demons...

Hi Black5star, While many Schools do accept either the GRE or the GMAT as part of the application process, NOT all Programs do. While taking a Full GRE MST (Multi-Stage Test) to see how you would score is probably a good idea, you need to make sure that the PhD Programs that you're interested in ac...

I agree with my colleagues: Take more diagnostic tests. Identify what patterns, if any, are in your sub-optimal performance.

Hi Black5tar, PhD Programs tend to be highly competitive, since the number of available 'spots' is low and the applicants tend to be highly qualified overall. As such, a high GMAT score is almost always required (even if it's not explicitly stated). From your post, it's not clear how you studied, s...

Hi, I am struggling for days finding the rating for each section in order to calculate my raw score. Then, I am not able to find the table for converting that raw score into a total score.
