Me too - but I'm having trouble finding information about whether or not Booth allows its students to pursue 3-year dual degrees with another university (MA/MBA) - beyond the handful listed on their website. Does anyone know?g000fy wrote:Considering round 2

All schools weigh the application components holistically, meaning one piece (i.e., GMAT) is not more important than another (i.e., essays). The "80% rule" is not set in stone, nor is it followed by all schools. At this stage in the admissions cycle, you need to focus on putting together the strong...

If you factor the equation (see below), you will get one positive and one negative root. Since time cannot logically be negative (you cannot travel 400 kilometers in -4 hours), you are left with only one possible values for time. Multiply by t(t-1): 400(t-1) + 20(t(t-1) = 400t 400t - 400 + 20t^2 - ...

Interesting topic. One thing that sticks out to me is that there hasn't been any discussion of the breakdown between the quant/verbal as it relates to the overall score. One of the schools I'm applying to (read: Wharton) seems to have an 80th percentile benchmark for the quant score (nothing officia...

1) seems insufficient because there is no indication of how long it took to do the remaining distance, or how fast they travelled. They're left with 200km and could have taken 2 hours or 2 days. Insuff. 2) Travelled 400KM in T hours. Had it been 20kph faster in would have travelled 400km in T-1 hou...

Thanks to both of you. Brian - I believe I understand your explanation, combining the like terms one at a time. Rahul - I'm not as clear on the explanation you posted. I see that in the firs step you subtracted 2 from both sides. But you lost me on the 2nd and 3rd step. It looks like you multiplied ...

Very helpful! Just what I needed - thank you!nicolezl wrote:

In the second line, you factor out 5^12 from (5^13 - 5^12), which gives you 5^12*(5-1).

Does that help?

##### Integers equally spaced on a line - help?

This problem threw me off the first time around. Now I understand how to set up the equation but I'm having trouble with the algebra. First the problem: [Image of 4 integers A, B, C, and D on a number line] The integers A, B, C, and D shown on the number line above are all equally spaced. If C and D...
