You can probably improve significantly just by doing a bunch of practice problems and reviewing the justifications for both the answers you got right and those you got wrong

GMAT verbal is all about memorizing a set of grammatical rules and applying them to the problems

Probably consider some private tutoring if youre really looking for a decent score, as a native speaker you should strive for a minimum of 39 id say

Good Evening My Fellow Christian Educators! I realize it is going to be challenging for me this year...with so many of my students performing below grade level expectations in ELA and MATH and also ensuring that all students follow the COVID Guidelines in the classroom. I still feel hopeful that God will bless me with the knowledge on how to effectively impact each one of those kids. Let's remember to keep all educators lifted in prayer this year.
Have a wonderful school year!!
God Bless All❤️

UVA Darden or Georgetown McDonough part-time for a B4 consultant targeting FAANG, but still wanting MBB as a potential option?

UVA Pros: Higher ranking, great professors, and a tight knit community

Georgetown Pros: More established part-time program, campus for out of class collab, focus on collab not competition, feels like a good fit especially with its diversity, opportunity to have classes with full time students, lecture+case+experiential learning, and more electives to choose from

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
