No i didnt get any admissions yet...but i have decided to (kick?) start my MBA journey. Wait..that too is not true, as i have already passed the first hurdle. Yes, i'm done with the GMAT. Now i dont have to worry abt those silly grammar mistakes and can write whatever i like and however i like ;-)
But it is true that i enjoyed my GMAT preparation. To tell you the truth, infact i enjoyed it too much that i was into it for the past 10 months...wierd huh?. But it is true. Infact if i have to give anyone one advice on GMAT, it will be to keep his/her preparation short & intense. Know the GMAT format,common patterns etc well and then attack it. Most guys (including me) have difficulty in the SC section that they go abt memorizing/ understanding all the exotic grammar concepts. Some even lose their sleep & hair worrying over that one difficult-to-understand grammar rule someone explained in some damn "forum". Guys, leave all these to rest. Concentrate on the basic errors tested in GMAT and you will be fine most of the time.
Well, now i guess u will be curious abt what my profile is and what score i actually bagged in GMAT. Right?. Well my profile is what follows now.
Indian/24/Male/IT with 2.5 Yrs of Work Ex. No stellar UG (Comp.Sci) grades but managed to scrap through with a "First Class" from one of the TOP engineering 5 Engineering colleges in India. (No, I'm not an ex-IIT-ian). GMAT in 700+. Average extra-curriculars & community involvement.
Currently, I'm planning to applyfor fall 2007 class of some 5 or 6 US & Europe univs. But the above said number cud increase or decrease as i go thru my MBA research this year.
From time to time i will be updating this blog on the happenings from my side. Do pardon any grammar mistakes u happen to come across in this damn blog of mine. I dont want to be on the watchout for these kinds of errors while i put my thoughts in this blog, otherwise it would look like i'm writing some goddamned essay for some univ, which is a really SCARY thought :(
