Preparing for Graduate and Professional School Exams
If you're applying to graduate school, a graduate business program, law school, or a graduate health sciences program, you may be required to take a standard examination. These examinations help admissions representatives determine who is capable of withstanding the rigors of graduate and/or professional study. Standardized tests permit students from a variety of universities and colleges with differing grading standards to be compared. Common exams are the GRE (Graduate Record Exam), LSAT (Law School Admission Test), GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test), and the MCAT (Medical College Admissions Test). It’s generally best to not wait until your senior year to prepare for, or sit for, one of these important exams. Get started now.
