Business school applicants should begin the GMAT preparation process by determining the GMAT score that matches their ambitions. According to the Graduate Management Admission Council, approximately 75% of all students who take the GMAT receive a total score below 650, and the mean total score is currently 551.94. Students interested in acceptance to highly ranked business schools must nearly always reach the upper portions of the scoring range. The average GMAT scores of accepted students are easily available on university websites, and can provide helpful benchmarks. Although there is some fluctuation, averages for the top 50 schools are generally above 650, above 700 for the top 20, and above 720 for the top 5. Surpassing these averages usually gives an applicant his or her best chances at success. A student who wishes to attend the University of North Carolina's Kenan-Flagler Business School, for example, should take that institution's median score of about 700 as an initial goal, and then try to exceed it by 10 to 20 points.
Even a cursory review of GMAT data at business schools shows that it is quite difficult to get accepted without upper-percentile scores. Elite GMAT performance, however, is both attainable and well worth the expense. Manhattan Review's GMAT students have been accepted to top business schools such as Wharton, Harvard, Stanford, UC Berkeley, the University of Chicago, Dartmouth, Columbia, Duke, Georgetown, and MIT. Students at these business schools can look forward to lucrative employment after graduation. At Harvard Business School, for example, 94% of graduates receive job offers within three months, with median starting salaries of $130,000 (65% of these students also receive average singing bonuses of $25,000, and 19% receive other types of guaranteed compensation at a median level of $26,000). Manhattan Review clients have been hired by a number of Fortune 500 companies, including Berkshire Hathaway, Prudential Financial, JP Morgan Chase, and Microsoft, and we also have former students now working for Lausanne firms such as CGN, Edipresse, and Tetra Laval. Manhattan Review's GMAT prep services in Lausanne have paid dividends for our students, and we hope to also help you become a successful business student and business professional.
GMAT Private Tutoring
Now I am preparing for my GMAT tests. The course books Turbocharge Your GMAT and Official Guide For GMAT are very helpful. I think the combination of these two books is very good. What I like the most about Turbocharge Your GMAT course is Vocabulary lists. The other books don't provide such lists, but for me as a foreigner it is very important to learn the words that may appear in GMAT. For example, I was afraid not to understand a task in math section or to misunderstand it, and not to give correct answer to relatively easy question just because I didn't understand the data or the question. But after I learned Math Vocabulary list I very seldom misunderstand a task. Now the hardest GMAT task for me is Reading comprehension, because my vocabulary sometimes is not enough to understand a text, especially if it is historic matter. So now I am learning words from Vocabulary lists. Now I study hard every day, because I realize I am at a disadvantage in comparison to test takers, whose native language is English.

Antoine P. was born and raised in the Lausanne area. A graduate of the University of Edinburgh and Columbia Business School, he has been teaching GMAT prep in the United States and Europe since 2009. He also maintains an active career in the business world as a junior executive at an international manufacturing company's Lausanne offices.
Antoine describes his teaching style as detail-oriented but patient. "There is a lot of material to learn on the GMAT, but students need to acquire these skills in a slow and steady fashion," he says. "I go for quality of instruction rather than quantity, because the brain can only absorb so much information at any one time." Antoine's most recent cohort of GMAT students includes acceptances to Harvard, Northwestern, MIT, UCLA, and London Business School.
