Mr. “GMAT” Grimly Miserable At Tests

About Me:

I was part of one of Columbia’s dual degree programs and spent 2 years abroad learning a fun mix of various social sciences. While in undergrad, I started a venture in China, delivering offline experiential learning to 100K+ students, grade 8-12.
Work in Asia has allowed me to enjoy experiences spanning education, film, design consulting, and now healthcare.

I am taking the GMAT in two weeks. I was not the best test taker before, but I am hoping for the best.
