New GMAT day

Today I’ve scheduled GMAT on 14 of October. I decided to apply in second deadline, so it is not late. i will schedule TOEFL on the middle of November, so i will have one attempt to retake it.

Now i am convinced that i will pass GMAT on 700+. I see a great progress in solving LSAT questions. in LR sections i solve 60-80% questions correctly, and in RC - 60-70%. But i have a problem with listening and speaking section of TOEFL. I’ve just took a practice of TOEFL listening section and made a lot of mistake answering on question about dialogs of two students and students and teacher, but did only one in listening of classes. this result is did not surprised me, because i listened a lot of English podcasts and lectures but very few real conversations.

Today i copied topics of essay from business school and wrote plans of essay. I plan to write essay during this month and August, after that i will only edit them.

Kaneisha’s webinar

Nevertheless webinar began at 3-15 to 4-30 It was very interesting for me. So in this post you can read Kaneisha’s recommendations for odd people who apply for MBA.

1. About GMAT:
Do not take GMAT more then 3 times.
Before next attempt give yourselves at lest 2 month to preparation
take the best course that you can afford

2. if you don’t have traditional for MBA experience take a finance, accounting, economic, or math class. Thus BS will be sure that you can ability to study these topics.

3. Start write your essay right now(!).
Review essay several times
Use an essay coach, especially if you have odd background or low GMAT

Believe that it is possible to be admitted with very low GMAT or/and with absolutely unusual background.

Kaneisha offers two type of coaching one-on-on and group coaching. more information you can find in her site

In sum webinar was very interesting, and in my opinion Kaneisha is talented coach.

GMATprep 650 (Q49, V31)

I’ve taken the second GMATprep test in April, but today I did not recognize any questions. During test I was very concentrated. I am very happy to see this result, especially after getting 510 a week ago in Knewton CAT. May be it was unsuccessful day or that test inadequate reflected my score

Now I will analyze mistakes and in the evening or tomorrow schedule GMAT day on September. I guess that it will not problem for me to improve score to 700+ during 2 month.

Top MBA for people with low GMAT

A free webinar by Kaneisha Grayson “B-School Despite the Odds” will occur on Thursday, July 8 at 5:15 pm Pacific Time.

Kaneisha Grayson has graduated from Harvard Business School and Harvard Kennedy School. She has recently received a $10,000 grant from Harvard to found a coaching business. She specialize in working with “interesting people,” applicants who have ambitious goals for where they want to attend school but whose grades, test scores, and/or work experience do not accurately reflect their best abilities. She helps people tell their story so that schools can look past the numbers and see how phenomenal of a person and student the applicant will be.

As Kaneisha writes she is a writer, storyteller, and coach rather than just an “admissions consultant”. Her priority is to be as helpful and relevant as she can be in aiding people in achieving their educational and professional goals.

Knewton CAT 510 (q37 / 49% v24 / 32% )

It is awful result. I am very disappointed because I’ve never taken prep tests so bad. Although I felt that result would be low because a lot of things diverted my attention and I had a headache.

In math part I made 10 mistakes, two of them in first 10 questions, and 4 of them in last 10 ones. Usually having 10 mistakes I got higher score in math…
In verbal part I did bad especially in reading comprehension.
Tomorrow I will take a Kaplan or Princeton CAT for determination my real level due to i am not sure that Knewton reflect my score adequately. In addition now I guess that I should practice math too, because in real exam I want to get in math 50 or 51.

I am a new Grockit verbal leader

I’ve just noticed that I’ve become a new verbal leader in Grockit. In fact it means only that during the weak or two I’ve solved more hard verbal questions in this site than other members correctly. Since Saturday I’ve solved in this site 429 questions and vast majority of them were hard.

In next Saturday I will take a prep test, and after that will schedule new GMAT day
