Hi All,

I would like to know your opinions about the difference between Manhattan classroom and online course. Are the online sessions live and can we interrupt the session if we have some question? Can we play the recordings back for online course.? Also do people attending Manhattan classrom get access to online lectures if in case they want to review some topic online later.

Thanks a lot,

Yes, the sessions are live and you may ask questions during the session.

Yes

I do not know the answer to this. I took the online class. Someone from MGMAT or someone who has taken the live class should chime in.

Thanks a lot,

Ravi

Thanks for your reply. I came to know that people taking classroom lectures do get access to online lectures as well. So what is the biggest advantage of classroom sessions over online.

Hi,

Thanks for your questions. The answers to the questions above were all correct, so I won't answer them again. Aside from one being in a virtual classroom and one being in a physical classroom, there are three main differences between online and in-person courses:

1. The online courses are capped at 25 people, and because of the way the classroom works, there are two instructors in the room. One is talking on the mic and the other is talking in the chat box, answering questions. To see a preview of how the Elluminate classroom works, click here: http://www.manhattangmat.com/online-question.cfm In the in-person classroom, classes are capped at around 16-18 people (depending on where you're located and the size of the classroom) and there's only one instructor.

2. To make up online classes, you have the option of viewing the recording of the class you missed. (You also have stock recordings of all nine sessions available to you in your student center.) To make up an in-person class, you can either watch the recordings in your student center or schedule to sit in with another live class (you can sit in up to three times.)

3. The online courses are a bit cheaper.

Ultimately, it comes down to which platform suits your study habits better. Do you work better when you can see your classmates and when you are in a classroom so you can focus, or do you work better in the comfort of your own home, where you don't have to worry about the commute and where you can be wearing pj's?

Feel free to PM me if you have more questions!

Best,
Caitlin Clay
