So I took the GMAT practice test.
Scored at 510. Yikes.
Luckily I have about a year to bring my score up. I won’t study for a year as that has been shown not to be the most effective strategy. Instead I will study for 2 months and then take it in December. Depending on how I do (Im guessing I can’t improve more than 120 points in one sitting) I will do another intense round of studying and take the GMAT again in March. My goal is a 710/720 to make sure I am competitive for top schools. I will document my study sessions and note techniques that I find really work.
