Show Notes

You want to do well on your standardized test to get in to your target school/program. That's a given. But a high test score can also benefit you in other ways -- perhaps even helping you to land a high-paying job upon graduation. We talk about that in answering the following "mailbag" question submitted by Braden, who asks:

"Is it true that consulting firms ask for your GMAT score during the job interview process? If so, is that a reason to take the GMAT instead of the GRE?"

In addition to shedding light on whether or not you're likely to be asked for your test score after you're done with school, we explore a couple other important benefits of a high test score including the possibility of earning scholarships. Regardless of which exam you're studying for, it behooves you to do as well as possible. You'll understand why after listening to this episode. Enjoy!
