640 is not a bad score for a first attempt. What is your score split? Being you are a math major you should be able to score well at quant. I took my first GMAT last December and got a 590 and on my 4th attempt this past weekend, I scored 690 and it was enough for me. I am not sure if you have a lot...

I have a 3.37 UG GPA in mechanical engineering from an Ivy. I was struggling with my GMAT before (scoring 640 twice) but this past weekend I was able to score 690 (88%, Q51/98%, V31/58%). I was not really paying attention to my Q51 until later when other people started commenting how rare it is to s...

I randomly guessed on the first question as I described. And I took another guess at around question 20 (DS). I had eliminated all but 2 and I was guessing between C or E.

I can't tell you whether it would be useless to prepare for geometry and coord. geometry but I think you need to know the concepts. As an engineer myself, geometry comes easy for me. I have more troubles with number properties (inequalities)

You said it yourself that you are in the 80% range and that is all you can ask for. It would be awesome if you have a 760 but you don't so there is no point to worry over it. You don't get in if you don't apply. I will also be applying to LGO :) good luck And some LGO candidates are applying using G...

Paxton, Just want to update you. I took the GMAT again this weekend and got a 690 (Q51 V31). Verbal decreased from 35 to 31 but I guess you can't always get everything. I will be submitting for MIT/LGO deadline on 12/15 and then it is Kellogg MMM and Michigan Tauber. All these are full-time programs...

Haas wants to see you score above 80% in Quant and you did. That is all you need to prove to them your quant sufficiency. No need to take college math course or waiver exam. The statistic waiver is a different story.

I would say real GMAT is slightly harder than GMATprep (I haven't taken a GMAT prep in a month though). I felt the Kaplan Quant. focuses a little too much on comb/perm because I did not see even one comb/perm yesterday and I think I only saw one on the previous attempt. There were maybe 2 coor.geome...

Hi Stacy Thanks for your help I am a mechanical engineer. English is not my native language but I have lived in the US for 15 years. Have my UG and master degree both in the US. UG GPA was 3.4 in an Ivy engineering school I guess it might be better to highlight verbal "procificency" (if you call V35...
