GMAT Prep Experience with EMPOWERgmat

by Shubrat » Tue Nov 13, 2018 1:44 pm
When I started the process to apply to business school, I originally thought the GMAT would be the easiest portion due to my background as a CFA and Investment advisory. However on my first attempt I scored a 650 and realized that I would probably need to prepare before I took an actual attempt. I found EMPOWERgmat online and heard great reviews, so I jumped in and followed the course format. Since I had a limited time of 1-2 months, I took the fast track course and spent 2-3 hours every day. My strong suite is on the verbal side, with a little bit of fine tuning, and as such I was focused on improving my quant performance. The tricks and practice they provide really gave me an edge in increasing my score, one that I feel would do wonders for anyone being stuck on either verbal or quant. I ended up getting a 690 on my actual try, even though I had achieved a 720 on a practice exam. Regardless, this score was above the average of what I needed and am more than happy with the outcome.

Hi Shubrat,

That's FANTASTIC news! With this 690, you can apply to any Schools that interest you (and it sounds as if this score puts you above the average Scores at the Programs that you're considering - which is great news). I hope you reach out and let us know how your applications go. We love hearing from our Alums about which School they choose to attend.

Congrats again on all of your success so far!
