Hi Lisa, Thanks for the quick reply. I very much appreciate it. I had a few more questions for you. (1) I have taken a few courses in the business school along with other MBA students at my graduate school while finishing my PhD and I performed quite well. Do you think it makes sense to mention this...

Hi Lisa, Just one more thing. In your reply, you mentioned "There are so many great programs out there--don't overlook some that make sense for you just because BusinessWeek, US News, Financial Times, etc. does.". Which programs do you think make sense for me that I might be overlooking? thanks, bovik

mba after phd

Hi Lisa, I had another of these (stupid?) questions to bug you. I have a PhD from a top 5 university and have been working for over 3 years as a researcher for a big corporation in the tech sector. I was thinking of getting an MBA so that I may be attractive for a managerial kind of role (think prod...

Brian I can't believe I read your post because it sounded exactly like my story! I was also averaging around 680-700 on my practice exams and was hoping for a 700+ yesterday. I ended up canceling because I ran out of time. I crammed for this test in under a month and the week leading up to the test,...

is there any point in getting books for RC and CR?

I've done okay on my verbal practice exams (averaging around 42) with 7-10 minutes to spare. The only trouble that I have are tough science passages. Yesterday I bombed my real gmat by running out of time on my verbal (around 9 Q with 7 minutes remaining so I had to guess everything). I already have...

Do superhigh scorers ever plug in numbers?

Data sufficiency has always been my weak point because I don't really understand the theory very well. Many of the questions such as if "n^2-4 has remainder 1, what's the remainder for n/3 etc" I have to plug in a lot of numbers to arrive at a choice. I've done relatively well on my practice exams b...

was it a mistake to have canceled?

Yesterday I took the GMAT and ended up canceling. From my gmatprep and manhattan gmat practice exams, I was scoring in the 680-700 range. I retook some gmatprep practice exams over and scored 750-760 on them but of course they're inflated because some questions were repeats. On the practice exams, m...

I kinda get how this is working but am not 100% sure between using "is" vs "are".

1. We say: "the players are" Joe, John, and Jeff."
2. We also say: "What truly commands respect is a large air force and a resolute foreign policy."

Can someone please explain?
