Eager applicants to top business schools often visit the Bloomberg Businessweek Business School Forums to gripe about the GMAT. Most often, they complain that their score is too low. Once they get that out of their system, they usually ask for help. They want to know what to do to raise their scores, how to study, whether to take a test prep course, and what their chances will be if they can’t raise the score.
Recently, mbastnt began a discussion thread about this very topic. Many advised mbastnt to take the test again because 650 was not a high-enough score for the big-name schools. One person suggested eating protein before the test and candy during it to gain clarity from the sugar high. Although there’s no proof that M&Ms will lead to a higher score, it is an interesting post that grabs attention. What would you suggest? Join the discussion at the “Bad GMAT Scores” discussion thread.
