A Community to Support You

Applying to business school this year? We know it’s stressful, so we’re here to help! We’ve set up info pages for each business school in our MBA Watch, so it’s easier for you to stay connected to what the AdCom and fellow students are saying. We’re now doing even more than that!

To ease the stress of applying, Beat The GMAT is giving away $10 in Amazon.com gift cards to the first 100 R1 applicants who update their application status on Beat The GMAT!

The Prizes

  • $10 Amazon.com gift cards for the first 100 R1 applicants who update their application status on Beat The GMAT.

Please note that the only requirement is that you have submitted your R1 application and that you updated your application status on Beat The GMAT. You can win the $10 Amazon.com gift card even if you haven’t yet received a notice from your schools.
