The Magic 700

The average GMAT score is 561. However, the average of the top 25 MBA programs is 713. Meanwhile, the mean of the top 10 MBA programs is 727.

MBA acceptance rates for top programs are highly selective, therefore scoring above 700 will place you beyond the 90^{th} percentile and will increase your chances of standing out. And while your score is not the only metric universities look at, there is no doubt it can play a significant role in determining eligibility.

To achieve a 700 or above, you need to answer the hard questions. At the easy and medium level, the problems are mostly straight-forward solving with a few reasoning questions. However, once past the medium level, the GMAT radically changes. At this point, the hard level questions not only require problem-solving but also focus on reasoning. These problems become vastly more complex and convoluted, even more so because many of the commonly taught tactics cease to be effective.

**Over 40 years of experience** – We have helped thousands of students, many of whom have scored within the GMAT 99^{th} percentile. We have continually tested and refined our approach to an exact science, and our student’s scores prove it.

**Your time is valuable** – The average 700 GMAT test-taker spends 120 hours studying, with many students studying for longer. In the quantitative section alone, there are 20 topics to cover, and the GMAT does not test them equally. When you work with a tutor, you know what to study, and we ensure your time is laser-focused to maximize GMAT improvement.

**Specially Designed Techniques** – We developed techniques drawn from concepts in engineering, math, and finance specifically, to tackle the hard problems (700+). That’s just for technical solving. We also teach the deep analytical techniques needed to excel at reasoning. **Curious about which commonly taught techniques are not effective past 650?** These include eye-balling, back-solving, approximation, smart numbers, and plugging in numbers, to name a few. **To break 700, you need different techniques**.

**The Best GMAT Practice Questions** – Take your GMAT test prep to the next level using our database with **over 40 years of real GMAT questions and answers**. Create custom problem sets segmented by question-type and question-level. We also provide our students with real GMAT practice tests.

Without an individually tailored GMAT study guide, focusing specifically on your situation, GMAT prep can be a shot in the dark. It is easy to focus on sparsely tested topics or to spend lots of time reviewing, only to find that applying the concepts is tougher than was shown in the GMAT sample questions.

With us, everything is about you, whether it’s how you learn or providing you with the right GMAT study materials. For every concept we teach (for quant), there are at least five other ways of explaining it. We will do everything within our ability to present the information in a way that makes sense to you, regardless if it means starting from the absolute basics. When you work with us, you are adding a member to your team. We are here to support you every step of the way.

There are swaths of GMAT prep courses available between traditional companies such as Manhattan Prep and Princeton Review to their online competitors like Target Test Prep and Magoosh. When making any comparison, make sure that the products match up. Many big-name companies design their offerings for the vast majority of GMAT test-takers. The vast majority of test-takers don’t need a 700 or above. Most will not need above a 650, so understanding whom most products cater to is essential. ** By comparison, GMAT Tutor NYC is in a tight niche, focused on very high-achieving students who are looking for something that will set them apart. To that end, we have developed proprietary techniques and materials that are not made generally available**.
