    This program is a little expensive, but will help you do well on the GRE. If you have forgotten the necessary math and comprehension skills, I would recommend PowerScoreGRE.

    Set yourself apart with your motivation for earning your MBA. Schools want to know that you have a goal in mind and that this degree will help you reach that goal. It makes them more confident that you will do well in the program.

    The thing that I enjoy about powerscore is that they are top notch in every subject that they specialize in. I was focused on Law School from 2014-2019 and I used their online tutoring program and their instructors were AMAZING. When I switched to business, I decided to give them a try because I already new what they brought to the table and it was the same result. Extremely affordable and reliable compared to local Miami GMAT programs that try to hustle you for your money. The most unique aspect of their instructors is that even after the online class is done, they will stay an extra 30 minutes online to do more questions, in which they know they know that don’t have to do that because they are not getting compensated for extra work.

    I applied to FIU's chapman school of business, The application is very easy. The only advice I would give the school is to more offer more specializations for MBA degree seekers, even though the selection is pretty decent.
