I would also like to know exactly how you folks scored 700? I have found some great resources, but I think my strategy is wrong for studying...Any help appreciated.

Congratulations folks for making it to the elite GMAT 700 club :D

An MBA does have a very good ROI provided you give yourself at least 5 years time after graduating frm MBA. With 3 yrs of experience, it would be difficult to get admissions in the top 10 universities in US. ISB is a good option and there are some good options in Europe and Canada.

I would not advise the SP Jain program as the payback period can go upto 8 years post MBA. Not a good investment as well.

Coming to Vrinda's query on test prep strategies, please see the posts on Low GMAT Scores thread. A lot of links and strategies have been outlined there. Well you can also follow our good mod neo2000 on Facebook and his GMAT experience. He is a seasoned GMAT veteran as well. Not to forget psychodementia who has been helping puys for the last 5 yrs on GMAT Prep. (www.crackverbal.com)

Also follow the blog www.coachgmatwings.blogspot.com for strategies.
(Neo - I haven't forgotten our discussion and your recommendation to avoid posting links that may tantamount to covert advertising. However, this blog is good and I think its only fair that junta gets the link to access valuable information)

What are my chances at ISB, Great Lakes and SP Jain Dubai/Mumbai programs..

Incase some one wants to know abt my prep then pl feel free to ask..
