Interview thank you note etiquette

Hi all, Just had my first interview today. At the end, interviewer didn't give me his card/e-mail/any other contact info. Is it still appropriate for me to find his e-mail (perhaps through the admissions dept. at the school where I interviewed) and send him a thank you? On the one hand, I feel like ...

Wanted to bump this one because I'm wondering about one of my own applications (now submitted). I couldn't remember my ending salary from my second-to-last job, so I entered what I thought I remembered it was. Now that I've gone back and checked, though, I've realized that what I reported on my app ...

How long for score reports to reach school

Hi all, I'm applying to MIT Sloan, and I just realized that I sent my test scores to the wrong program within the school (MSM, rather than MBA, program). I went ahead and ordered another score report to be sent out to the MBA program. Does anyone with any experience know whether there's a danger tha...

Universal recommendation

Anyone have an opinion on the idea of a comprehensive, universal recommendation letter (http://www.mbaapplicant.com/universal_recommendation.htm)? I've just secured two recommenders, and I'm not sure how realistic it's going to be to get them to do five separate recs that are individually tailored t...

I have couple of questions 1. How was the Quants section of actual GMAT compared to MGMAT tests that you wrote 2. What material did you use for preparing for quants? 3. What were your GMAT Prep scores 1. I'd say that on average, the MGMAT quant sections were harder than the actual GMAT quant sectio...


Honestly, it's a bit annoying to hear you whine about the AWA when you got a 780. I realized this about 5 minutes after I made my original post, and I felt bad about it. I'm really happy with my results, and I'm sorry that I implied otherwise. There's just 0.1% of me that's hung up on the AWA, and ...


Thanks for all the comments, guys. Here's the debrief... About 3 months ago, I started out by taking a free online exam from MGMAT. My quantitative score wasn't great (41), but my verbal was good (45). I was expecting I'd do well on both--the quantitative because I have a solid math background from ...

Hey, thanks! This helps. (I was having some immediate post-test come-down stress when I made my original post.)


780 (51 M, 47 V)--Silly to have nagging feeling about AWA?

Just took the exam officially for the first time. The multiple choice sections went well, but I've got a little bit of a nagging bad feeling about the AWA. (My Analysis of and Argument essay was probably fine, but I was light on ideas in my Issue essay.) In any case, I'm thinking that the absolute, ...

AWA essays--looking for feedback--will help in return

I know it's a lot to read...I'd really appreciate any feedback on either or both essays. Analysis of Issue “People often complain that products are not made to last. They feel that making products that wear out fairly quickly wastes both natural and human resources. What they fail to see, however,...
