I need the precise days, as in Day 8 of the study guide, not the days of the calendar when you did not get the email.


Hey there,

We don't send emails individually :) We have an emailing system that deals with that, but it's been having a few problems lately. Can you please tell me which days you are missing?


Just sent it to you.

Hey zander21, The prizes are all GMAT courses and MBA admissions products, so I doubt they'd be of much use to someone who has already been accepted to school. That's why we mentioned this contest is geared towards applicants. We do not distribute cash prizes. Hope this helps! If you have more quest...

Congrats on the score improvement, dav35! Sorry to hear about your illness though, but seems to me that you managed to overcome that. I don't think you need to retake - I only see that as being necessary if you're part of an overrepresented group of applicants. Best of luck for fall admissions!

Writing tips/templates

By general stuff I mean the sort of platitudes I recommended you avoid in my first post: There are a few things you need to keep in mind though. One of the most important would be avoid general, grandiose phrases in your piece. The Official Guide for the TOEFL gives an example of such an error: “t...

They may support it, but to me most of the time that's not necessarily the case. Those three options are meant to be the summary of the text, not just supporting ideas for the one bolded sentence.

Nope - it's always good as a starting point. Just don't automatically consider it as the thesis.

Writing tips/templates

How about a combination of both? Although in general I'm not a big fan of citations, it's really not worth learning these to insert in essays and most of the time they don't actually add value. Also, beating about the bush with general stuff won't score you too many points... You need to be concise ...

1. Democratic and Whig parties Here is where my initial reply, that the bolded sentence might not be the thesis of the passage and merely a starting point (or introductory sentence, to quote the instructions), is illustrated. I also don't feel that the bolded sentence here is the thesis, but I will ...

Most of the time yes, but it also depends on what the actual question is asking. When you write a summary, the first sentence is usually the thesis, but it really depends: this introductory sentence might just be a starting point and the conclusion or thesis might come later.
