Best GMAT Practice TestsHey guys - aside from Manhattan GMAT - what other brands would suggest for online practice tests? I've heard many times the Manhattan tests are a bit tougher than the real one (so likely good prep), but would like to try some other brands. Thanks 3 years 5 months
B School Essays - Year to YearI realize this might be a naive question - but how often do all the questions for H/S/W/M7 schools application essays change year to year? For example- I think HBS releases their bschool essays in May of the year, prior to R1. Thanks 3 years 9 months
Austin, TXOk - so I had never been here before until last weekend, and had a a blast. Food is awesome, music scene - Girls are amazing (college and professional), nightlife is pretty fun.

Article on being a Summer Analyst"Fewer Perks and More Work for Wall St.’s Summer Interns" Good article on being a summer analyst, aside from the fact that i think when I SA'ed, everyone worked long hours, it wasn't a breeze by any means- takes me back to that time when you still had a year of college left... 3 years 11 months

Sagent Advisors? Culture varies by office - the place used to have a better culture, but since the deals don't come as easily, and the ranks have ramped up, it certainly can be sweatshop hours depending which group/who you work for. ny office has ramped up MDs very heavily in last 9 months - and yes analysts... 3 years 9 months
Wow. B-school really is that crazy i think most appealing about b school is the network on a personal level - sure its amazing professionally, but you don't get many chances to make good friends like you do in college, high school, etc. very few jobs or professional environments allow you to be in that academic environment where you... 3 years 9 months

Austin, TXthanks for the post - admittedly - the dilemma is b school for me. if I go soonish (at my current company), my chances at H/S/W are quite high - going to austin is more or less a pass on bschool since it reduces my chances at H/S/W (I would only consider these schools), but might be more fulfilling... 3 years 10 months
Austin, TXagreed - it actually felt the opposite even, with girls being super outgoing which is a nice change from NYC (that and they were hotter than the average girl here). NYC nightlife great, and the range of options can't be beat - but to be honest i was loving the super chill bars/lounges on the... 3 years 10 months
