This Scholarship Changes Lives

Hear what past winners have said about winning a Beat The GMAT Scholarship:

Winning the 2011 GMAT Scholarship was both a humbling and empowering experience. I come from a non-traditional business background and it gave me the confidence to compete for a top MBA program. I am currently taking my prep course and I cannot see myself taking the GMAT without the preparation that my course has given me. This scholarship has taken me a step closer to achieving my dreams. Stephanie Puentes, 2011 Beat The GMAT Scholarship Winner It’s been a whirlwind year! Winning the 2010 Beat The GMAT Scholarship set me on the path to achieving my MBA dream. Coming from a non-traditional pre-MBA background, it gave me the confidence to know that I can be a competitive applicant. Without BTG’s assistance and belief in me, I don’t think I’d be where I am today. Uyen Hoang, 2010 Beat The GMAT Scholarship Winner, Johnson at Cornell University ’13, Forté Fellow, Consortium Member
