GMAT - Q vs. V at Top 20 - 50 schoolI am in the beginning stages of GMAT prep and found it interesting that b/w two candidates at opposite ends of the spectrum as far as the spread b/w their quant and verbal scores, the candidate with a mediocre quant score and a strong verbal score will score much higher than someone with a strong... 2 years 6 months
MBA dreams crushed by 'F'How much is an 'F' on my transcript going to hurt my chances at a top 20 b-school (Texas in particular)? I slept through a final and obviously failed the class....

Do head hunters give you legitimacy? I have been exploring the job market recently and when I first started sending my resume out, it was simply through, etc. and applying online.

Advange testingAnyone heard of Advantage testing? Any thoughts in general on high priced tutors? The tutors at this place cost upwards of $300/hr and a lot of them have IVY degrees (obv. did well on standardized exams).
