I am preparing for my GMAT in order to apply for top a 20 MBA program. After preparing for a month and a half, my GMAT practice scores seem to be pretty lousy (sub 620). I was always a terrible standardized test taker. I could do well in my APs, school/ college work, Math exams (Calc, Stats, etc), but I had tough time with critical thinking exam problems such as the SAT and now GMAT. I got into a ok college with a GPA 3.65 major finance minor econ, so I don't think of myself intellectually inferior, but I am a point of desperation.
I may not be able to apply for an MBA program, due to this gmat score problem, and I wondering if I am intellectually capable of achieving a score above a 700 or even a low 650. I was wondering if anyone has had a similar situation and how did they over come the GMAT.
Did you get a low score and still get accepted into your top 20 mba program? Did you get a special tutor? Use a special prep course? Bribe the GMAC (joking)? Pay Russian hackers to rig your score(joking)?
I am planning on appylying for the class starting in 2018.
Many thanks in advance
