Why undergrads should take the GMAT

studyWhether you’re certain business school is in your future or think it might be a possibility – even a slight one –a few years down the road, you should consider taking the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) exam as an undergrad. Here’s why: 

You’ve got the basics down.

The GMAT assess your writing, integrated reasoning, quantitative and verbal skills – all of which you learn or develop in required core classes as UNC undergrads. Taking the exam now – while the concepts are fresh in your mind – will likely make for a less stressful experience.

And while you’ll still need to study for the test, chances are you’ll need far less time to prepare now than you will a few years down the road.

You’ve got help.

As a student, you have access to an abundance of resources that can help you prepare for the GMAT.

Having trouble remembering how to solve for x? With a campus full of the world’s best and brightest students, you’re bound to find a friend, classmate or grad student who’s willing to help.

As a current UNC student, you also qualify for discounted GMAT prep sessions through the Princeton Review.

With few discounts available for non-students, you won’t want to miss out on an opportunity to get professional test prep help and save yourself a significant amount of money!

You’re setting yourself up for success.

It’s no secret that top MBA programs look for candidates with high GMAT scores – but what you might not realize is that GMAT scores are good for five years, so taking the test now is a solid investment even if you haven’t quite figured out your plans for the future.

And if you take the test now, you’ll be able to focus on gaining essential work experience and save yourself the hassle of juggling studying and test prep with your job.

Join representatives from the UNC Kenan-Flagler full-time MBA Program at an upcoming Princeton Review Open House to learn more about business school, what an MBA entails, what jobs require one, how GMAT scores affect your admissions profile and more.
