  1. I don't know about that error, but I've had all sorts of problems with Kaplan CDs and oftentimes, the problems were related to quicktime (which you might want to reinstall) and once I had a soundcard settings issue and also a video settings issue. There are some posts about kaplan problems here that might be helpful if you search for them. Good luck.
  2. What an improvement! I wouldn't bother retaking it though for this round. If you don't get in then you can try again next year right? Good luck.
  3. Aru did you take all 6 exams? If so, what did you think of them? Were they tougher?
  4. You may want to seriously consider an English class or two (writing and grammar) to improve your skills in general. Remember that the schools aren't only looking for good scores, but expect you to have these skills to get the most out of the program and to represent the school well when you're done. You may also want to target areas where you see repeated mistakes like parallelism or misplaced modifiers. Good luck.
  5. They're okay to practice the general type of questions, but the best practice you can do is with the OG 10 or 11. If you want to gauge how you'd do on the real test then take the gmatprep.
  6. The gmatprep scores are usually roughly what most folks get on the real deal.
  7. no one really knows except GMAC....
  8. Wow great improvement. How did you improve your verbal score by so much?
  9. I think one problem with A (which may be a variation of the idiom rule) is that the pronoun 'they' seems unnecessarily redundant.
  10. E too, but this is an annoying question because it's inconsistent with the common accepted usage of hopefully. Who intends hopefully to indicate a hopeful manner? Other words like sadly, gratefully, etc. are in a similar boat, but GMAC doesn't care about them. Just know the rule for the GMAT and then forget it. Here's a good article on the topic. http://blogs.newsobserver.com/grammar/index.php?title=title_98&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1
  11. Not to interrupt the conversation here too much, but there are MBA programs that are geared towards family run businesses. You might be better suited for one of them and it might be more relevant to your goals. You will benefit much more from your classes after you've had some work experience (that's why schools almost universally require it), but you'll be able to get in somewhere if you're deadset on it (and since your brief bio seems decent for many of your choice schools). I'm surprised by your varied list of schools though. Also, if you're in such a rush to finish an MBA you might also consider some of the one year MBA programs in Europe. Anyway, that's my two cents....
  12. Hey folks, I'm curious what you all think about Cornell. It has some attractive advantages like being an Ivy with decent name recognition, some specific programs for technical folks like me, and good starting salaries. I'm also considering MIT, Kellogg, and Columbia (K+C both have nontraditional programs and MIT has a dual masters program in Engineering + MBA). They're all great schools so it's tough to prioritize. MIT and Kellogg seem slightly superior and better known across the country (I want to leave New England after graduation), but the other two are good too. I'm tempted to apply to all and see what happens. Help!
  13. Rokovsky, good luck finding your ideal school. Law appears to be geared largely toward precedents and less so towards varied ideas. You might get more of what you want during the last year, but the others will be full of tedious details and broad overviews of topics. I don't know if you'll find this helpful or not, but you may want to seriously consider a dual major. I know it's a lot of work, but a masters in government or some particular interest of yours may give you the combination you want. Remember too that law is one of those fields that almost requires you to attend a top institution for many of the best jobs, but your direction may be different enough that it won't matter for you. Good luck. Oh yeah, it takes a lot to scare a green skeleton.
  14. What an amazing improvement. Good luck with your applications and future!
