When MBA applicants approach us and share their personal details, we generally give them the benefit of doubt and don’t question the authenticity of the data. It’s only occasionally that we ask for additional evidence of their claims. As an example, someone claiming to have scored a 790 on the GMAT would fit well in that category.
When we asked Surya Ghosh (name changed) to share his GMAT report, he was more than happy to do so. The report listed the score that he had nonchalantly mentioned in his introductory email and we know it was fine to carry on the discussion.
We got into a call to discuss his MBA plans. For someone who had just annihilated the test that gives nightmares to MBA applicants, Surya was surprisingly polite and level-headed (double thumbs up from us for these traits). The GMAT topper offered to share his GMAT study plan with our readers.
