Data mining re: application trends

Post Fri Sep 28, 2012 1:51 pm
Hey GMAC friend!

We have all been hearing about the huge volume of GMATs taken the past year and what a stark uptick that represented in advance of the test changes. I'm wondering if you have data on WHEN people said they were planning on applying. I can't remember if you ask that of test-takers during the exam. Basically I am curious what percentage of people said they were "planning on applying this year" or "planning on applying eventually" and whether those numbers were different. It would be cool to see the trends there.

Thanks!

That's a great question. The easiest way to find that information is to check our Perspective Students Survey Report: www.gmac.com/prospectivestudents.

Let me know if that answers your question.

Thanks!
