GMAT VS IN HOUSE ADMISSIONS TEST

Post Mon Jan 07, 2008 9:59 pm
GMATTERS,

I am in the process of getting everything ready to apply to Instiuto de Empresa. My question, is it easier, harder, or better to take the school's admissions test instead of the GMAT ? pros/cons (assuming that's the only school I am applying for)

thanks
fadi

But if you are considering applying to only one university then there's no need for you to take GMAT unless your "in-house-entrance-test" fees is more than $250. Wink

Personally I am not familiar with entrance test at 'Instiuto de Empresa' so I cannot compare it with GMAT.
But again I would take GMAT as there are more resources / aid available for GMAT studies online or offline than any local test. Also you never know about your future development, I should be more open and take a general/global stardardised test!
i agree!
