    I got a 740 using only this course.

    This is a very good course if you have a good grasp of the concepts. If you have been out of school for a while and are not very good with numbers, grammar, reading, I would definitely recommend getting a traditional classroom course.

    There is a reason for the online version being cheaper than the regular course: it assumes you don´t need an actual person teaching you through the material.

    David,

    Thank you for your advice in this forum, it has been very helpful. First, let me give you my background information:

    -International applicant
    -740 GMAT
    -3.43 GPA from a top 50 US undergrad business school
    -One year of work experience in a financial services company in the US.
    -One year of work experience in a family-owned real estate development company. I manage the company´s financial division and supervise 15 employees.
    -I have served for the past year as a board member for a charity organization that provides housing to families in need.

    My two main concerns are:

    -Will I be competitive at a top 10 business school even though I only have 2 years of work experience (3 by the time I start classes?)

    -Even though my current job is very demanding and I have a significant leadership role in the organization, I am concerned that admissions will not find this experience very impressive because it is a business owned by my family.

    Thank you in advance for your feedback!
