We often offer a rah-rah post right around this time like the one from last week, directed to all those BSers who are coming off the crush of deadlines and the rush of the holiday, and they sit back and look around and wonder what to do with themselves.
We usually say, “Get a hobby.”
However this year – after observing the fate of BSers from last season – we’re going to offer a very blunt directive:
Retake that GMAT test if your score is low.
Do it NOW.
Too many times, we see BSers crossing their fingers and submitting their apps, hoping that their score will be “good enough.”
If we just described your experience over the last 10 days, then we’re talking to you.
RETAKE THE GMAT.
Now is your chance.
Here’s where we went off on a BSer last year, when they came to us with stories of woe about being mostly rejected, with two waitlist offers. This person might be you.
If it is, then we hope you will heed our advice.
You’re going to be casting about, looking around, wondering what to do with all this energy you’ve got, feeling a little lost and bewildered as you rejoin the land of the living after countless all-nighters with Word.
Now is the time to move over to your next priority: The GMAT.
If you know your GMAT is a point of strength in your app, then you’re fine.
But if you have always felt nervous about whether the GMAT is high enough, then this is you.
You don’t want to waste this opportunity.
You do NOT want to be looking back in a few months, kicking yourself for being a slacker.
Now is your time.
Make the most of it, BSer!
