I recently accepted an MBB offer for postgrad in 2022. Planning to study for the GMAT and apply to some 2+2 programs (HBS, GSB, Sloan, Kellogg, etc) while I’m still in my senior year. Any advice on how to prep? I’ve heard some people are successful with studying over longer periods of time, and also some who did well with 2-3 weeks of grinding. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
