REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED [?]

This review is for Smith

Program Full-time 2 Year MBA

Class of 2016

Experience during the program

The program has a very tight knit cohort. The small class size lets you get more learning opportunities, leadership opportunities and better interactions with the cohort, the faculty and the staff. There is a strong sense of community. The class room culture is very collaborative while the faculty are very knowledgable. The school offers a breadth of electives to shape your profile. The office of career services provides enough support to build your profile and prepare for an interview. It brings in a good number of employers who hire the domestic students however the international candidates are at the big disadvantage as there are very few employers willing to sponsor them. As an international student, this is the only thing I would change about the program. Otherwise it is exceptional!

e-Gmat Verbal for Non-native Speakers

Improvement N/A

Course e-GMAT Verbal Online

Location Online

I took help of the e-GMAT Verbal Online followed by the Verbal Live courses for my GMAT verbal preparation. Based on my research and the fact that I wanted a study at your own pace kind of a program that wasn't limited to weekend classes, I chose e-GMAT over others. e-GMAT fit the bill in terms of convenience. The verbal online material for the sentence correction section was very well organized and focussed on the topics that you were frequently tested on GMAT. I didn't find the other sections of the material really helpful or worth the money. While the material definitely helped me improve my verbal score from a 30 to 34, it didn't help me achieve my target score of 37-40 on verbal. The verbal live sessions didn't add much value to me. After scoring a 34 on my first attempt, I had a phone call with Rajat Sadana, the CEO of e-GMAT and he convinced me to sign up for the verbal live sessions. I ended up with the same 34 on my second attempt as well. I'd recommend their sentence correction package but nothing else.
