Coz i think it's more impressive if there is only 1 amazing score as opposed to 3 scores and the 3rd is amazing... Which would you prefer: a 760 or a 660, a 700 then a 760? A 760 the first time is more impressive, right?

Burnt Bridges

So on my way out of dodge I burnt a bunch of bridges with upper managment at my last job. It felt good at the time to speak my mind but prolly not so wise in retrospect. I gave them my two weeks notice but before the two weeks were up they asked me to leave. Still, my former direct supervisor and a ...

Oh, I got a 5.5 in AWA with no prep. I know my Analysis of an argument was superior coz I went over it again and again. I think I lost points on the Analysis of an issue coz there was so much I had to say and I felt that I didn't organize it as well as the Analysis of an argument. But 5.5 is still p...

Thank you Stacey! I took your advice and deleted any references (no matter how oblique) to what I saw on the test... I tried to be discrete but you can't be too careful. I think you are exactly right! time managment is my problem. Part of it has to do with not having internalized some concepts thoro...

Thanks DanaJ!!!!! The GMAT has showed me how beautiful and perfect mathematics can be. I KNOW I have a 49/50 in me... it's just a matter of time... time to internalize a bunch of concepts that I STILL have to think thru.... AUTOPILOT is what I need... some of the proofs we have to do in my Discrete ...

Congrats. What was your verbal score in the first attempt & how did you improve - if you did? Tx. Thanks! my verbal score the first time was 40 (89%ile) so I improved 6%ile points with virtually no verbal study. The only thing I changed was I began to use process of elimination for SC rather than t...

Thanks! I have to say the experience the 2nd time round was much more fun. I actually enjoyed the quant but must have had a string of wrong answers due to poor time management coz there wasn't anything that I couldn't handle... i just had to rush more than I wanted.
