Welcome to the GMAT Club Review System

GMAT Club verifies all GMAT Course and Admissions consulting reviews. We do this for a number of reasons and in a number of ways. We contact the test prep company at various points in time - sometimes when users request free access to the GMAT Club tests upon signing up for a course or after they submit a review. We send over the email address of the user to the prep company asking for their confirmation. We do not send out actual reviews ahead of time to ensure that both positive and critical reviews are posted.

Users are also able to post reviews confidentially. This does not mean the review is posted without being verified or anonymously, rather it means the user chose not to reveal their username to the public for privacy reasons. We wanted to give users ability to be free with their comments. We still have their username in the system and we still verify the review.

Both the users who submit a review of post comments about a review are required to be logged in with a GMAT Club username. Reviews display information detailed information to help you find the most influential reviews:
• Registration date of the user
• Post count
• Kudos count

We are currently not able to verify GMAT Test Center reviews.

If you have any comments or feedback or questions about the review system or the verification process, please post them here or PM me.

Thank you,
BB, Founder.

I started my gmat course in 2010 and while I am writing the review there is no option of selecting the 2010 as a year in which I started the course. What to do? It's not okay to give years upto 2020 and not even mentioning previous years!!

What you suggest?

Yes, I can see 2011 but I think 1st time I tried that there wasn't such an option to select 2011. Is there something wrong?

By default, it is Jan 1, 2011... not that I am aware of anything.

I think I noticed another error on the page. Under the "Highest Rated GMAT Courses" section when I am clicking on any of the link such as

Highest Rated Courses
Best Improvement
Best for Verbal Best for International Students
Best for Quant
Highest Rated GMAT Instructors

It is taking me to the page where it is saying "Submit a Review and get $10 amazon gift card" not$20?

Sorry, I can't post the link right now as my posts count is low.

So, when can I expect year 2010 embeded in the review page?

I was thinking of asking users who respond under "MBA Programs & Schools Reviews" section to add website link of the school also. What do you guys think?

Hi,

For the GMAT Admissions consulting reviews, I notice alot of users are new - they have 0 posts, 0 kudos, signed up for GMAT club the same day they wrote the review and didn't login after that.
Do we know whether these are credible?

Thanks

What I am seeing is that a number of people are being channeled by the prep companies to post reviews (who may not be GMAT Club members and thus sign up for the gift card benefit).
We do link to the profile there and list number of posts and Kudos (there are some heavy hitters there too) but the mass is usually much less active.

As to the knowledge if these are credible.... I sure hope so. Do you have a better suggestion?

I am not sure if I am in the right thread, but I was trying to post my review for a prep course that I used, and I wanted to understand the correct format for uploading my score report. Is it the reviewer's responsibility to crop/mask the personal data and then upload the report or do the moderators/bb do it when one uploads the report? Just want to be sure of the right procedure.

Thanks!

In your case (due to your reputation), you can crop the data if you want
Usually, we do it for the users.

Thank you for asking and congratulations on a great 750!

Thanks! It is someone else approving the reviews but I am sure it will get approved soon.
Congrats on the score - I am assuming you had to work just as hard for it. Good luck and on to the next stage!
