For those at MBB firms, how did you prepare for the GMAT? Did you firm provide a review course and if so, which one? How did you manage studying with the intense work hours? Insight appreciated!

Ignore G1. But you have to be extremely disciplined. I went to a top 10 b school (not an m7 however). I found a network of friends I confided in who were chasing the same goal as me and we encouraged each other. Literally stopped partying and every other thing that didn’t help with gmat.

Went to 24 hour libraries on weekends and quizzed each other. Took an online course, 2 actually (magoosh & veritas).

Won’t say it’s easy but will say it was worth it. If you really want the score you will get what you truly put in and sacrifice for.

Not MBB either

I took 2 weeks to study and got into M7. Just use the Manhattan prep. Many of my friends did the prep while in school (final semester), others just dedicate Saturday mornings but it ruins your Friday nights out

The course is $1599. Are you aware of any way to get a discount or reduced rate for this? 😅
