Prioritise it. I tried to fit it in the evening but I made no progress. Did an hour before work each day (instead of working out).

Invest in one of the prep resources (Manhattan etc). Any resource that gives you extra tests is worth doing (and, of course, do them under timed conditions as it is the time pressure that makes it challenging).

Your target is above 70th percentile in both maths and comprehension. Overall score >700 but top schools are like 730 average these days.

This may seem like a ridiculous question, but I genuinely don't know the answer. Am I a URM in terms of MBA apps?? My father is from the middle east and my mother is from the northern European country I live in. On top of that I was born in a different country altogether. I see on this app that some races (e.g. Indian/Asian) are actually at a disadvantage in terms of MBA apps. Where do you think I fall on this spectrum??
