Questions & Answers


How do I become eligible?

All Beat The GMAT members are eligible. All you have to do is make sure that you’ve registered an account and to start posting in the forums!

Give me the details on how you will select winners.

We look at two criteria: first and foremost, on February 22, 2010 we will look at the Giant GMAT Giveaway leaderboard above and consider the top five members we see on that list. Next, of these top five members, we will review the quality of posts contributed by each member; people who write high-quality questions and/or responses in the community will be rewarded. Those that simply write a bunch of one-word responses, or messages that are meaningless won't be selected, and we will move down the list to the next member who would have appeared on the leaderboard.

How do I track how I’m doing as a Giant GMAT Giveaway candidate?

Check this page periodically to see whether your name is on the leaderboard. If you're listed in the top 5, then you're in the running!

Can I pick more than one offer?

You wish. Each person selected in this program can pick only one offer.

If I get selected as a Giant GMAT Giveaway Winner and choose a product/course, do I have to share my experiences?

Yup. We require that winners share their experiences periodically with Beat The GMAT so that the whole community can learn about your experiences with your course/product/company. We may ask you to check in two times (either written messages or recorded phone interview) and write a debrief upon completing your course/product.

Sharing your experience is mandatory—if you don’t do it then the company you’ve selected may charge you the full amount of the product/service you’ve selected.

If I win, is there a time limit on when I can take advantage of my prize?

Yup. You must redeem your prize before May 1, 2010.
