About Manhattan Review

Dr. Joern Meissner, a tenured business school professor, began his concept of Manhattan Review back in 1999. He has supervised and overseen all of the programs since its inception. Meissner believes that prep programs created and presented by professionals that hold an MBA are not as valuable as his company, led by Meissner who has actually taught in an MBA environment. This distinction gives him a better perspective within the learning process.

Not to say that Dr. Meissner steers the Manhattan Review ship on his own. He has a crew of highly qualified, instructors who have gone through a rigorous selection process to become a part of the team. The Manhattan program focuses on enabling students to concentrate more on pure content and education, rather than tricks and shortcuts.

Basics

The formats for Manhattan’s prep classes, both GMAT and GRE, are rigorous, whether online or in a classroom setting, and some classes require a set amount of personal tutoring. Although they are similar to most of the competition when it comes to material, curriculum and content, but they are set to a specific course schedule.

Manhattan Review’s courses all offer a choice between in-person or online formats, a number of selected teaching hours with different durations of total instruction time and content. Ultimately, the plans are individualized to meet a student’s particular needs. GMAT BONUS: Weekend or “Boot Camp” options are available for those last minute crammers.

Manhattan Review Cost and Contact Info

The regime of courses and select tutoring are tiered for both GMAT and GRE on three different levels: Classic, Private and Tutoring at $990, $1,590 and $150 per hour respectively.

    Manhattan Review did a fantastic job of prepping me for the GMAT. If you don’t keep up with the homework, you won’t get as much out of it (if anything at all). The course expects you to keep up, and if you don’t, you’ll likely end up confused and wasting your time.

    The prep materials are also extensive enough that they provide ample material to study on your own after the course, should you choose to do more independent work before taking the test.

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: First, don't wait to get started until you finish the GMAT. Oftentimes people don't hit the scores they want to, and it pushes their whole timeline back, because they wanted to wait on starting their essays until the test is over. In this scenario, I highly recommend structuring your time to make room for both. Secondly, be authentic. This is the most cliche advice out there, but it's also so hard to achieve when you're reading example essays and trying to navigate what the admissions team wants to hear. And lastly, build in time so that you have time to review your essays...often time your ability to edit directly after writing is highly impaired.

    Manhattan Helped a lot with my gmat. The lessons, practice problems and tests helped tremendously. I was able to review the basics and apply to solving problems in Quant. I was able to take the tests within a month

    One of the best prep sources out there. Gives you a very comprehensive approach to tackling each specific subject of the gmat. I would recommend going over each book multiple times as it can be difficult to pick up concepts one read through. Overall I think this resource is a great way to score a 700 score or higher.

    I found Manhattan to be by far the best GMAT prep materials I took. Yes, they’re the most challenging. But if you’re trying to score 700+, it’s exactly the type of review you need. I think I found the quant section more difficult (and thus more valuable) but the verbal was also very strong. I recommend Manhattan to everyone–but I would do so after you’ve studied the original gmat prep books and material, since it can feel like a quick ramp up in material.
