Manhattan GMAT Social Venture Scholars Program

Considering taking a GMAT class? Concerned about funds because you’re saving the world as a social entrepreneur? Well, if that’s you, then here is a program you should apply to.  A GMAT class that’s not only free but also from one of the best instructors at the best programs I’ve seen.  Then you should take just a minute to check out Manhattan GMAT’s new offering.

Hi Everyone, just a quick note that Manhattan GMAT is has a great new program. It is offering special full tuition scholarships for up to 25 individuals who will be selected as part of Manhattan GMAT’s Social Venture Scholars program. This program provides the selected scholars with free admission into one of Manhattan GMAT’s 9-session Live Online GMAT preparation courses (a $1090 value).

The application process is simple. Please be sure to follow these instructions carefully. CLICK HERE to read more about it. Also note that the application deadline is Wednesday, February 1, 2012 and all applicants will be notified of award decisions on February 10, 2012 about one week later.

AND FINALLY —> let me also note that the instructor, Eric Caballero, is the same instructor that I took. I can’t say enough about how good of an instructor he is.  Not only smart but also good management of the materials and the classroom. He’s also a fun guy that’s easy to work with, which can be really important if you’re working really hard for a long time on the GMAT.

See below for more info on the program. And below that for another link to the website.

Good luck.
