No repeats. I had initially taken Kaplan CATs then took mgmat. When I took the GMAT prep tests I left about a month in between.

2nd times the charm?

so i took the test again today after doing well on my practice tests. The past 10 CATs that I have taken have all been 650+. The highest score I received was a 730 via MGMAT. I wasn't holding my breath for a 730, however, I took GMAT prep test #2, 2 days ago, and received a 690. Needless to say, I f...

EssaySnark says, Stern's P/T program is somewhat less competitive, though by no means easy to get into. GMAT and GPA ranges are considerably looser for Langone P/T. And, sometimes Stern still has slots available in the P/T entering class just a few weeks before that class begins (e.g., right now, t...

I would also go for B. The reason I would not go for D is because the current level of reimbursement by the insurance companies can not provide hospitals with funds for reimbursed care.

I would say retake it without unteruprions in a few days. Until then look at what you missed. Since you're Iranian like me quant for some reason comes natural to us (probably because it is showed down our throats for the first 18 years of our lives) my struggle is verbal as well. I am starting to ge...

Th scoring with the GMAT is tricky...your high accuracy percentage does not always mean a high score. For example, I took a practice CAT today, and I missed 12 problems in Quant and 16 in Verbal. 12 out of 27 is only about 66% accuracy but I received a Q48 score. Compare that to my Verbal. At 60% ac...

Applying prior to undergrad graduation...

Hey guys, I recently decided to go back to school and finish my undergrad because I realized that no matter how much money I was making pre-recession ($80k) I do not feel that I can make that given the current climate without an MBA. I also want to get out of retail and into the "professional" world...
