Making the Grade

Entrance exams can be an intimidating barrier to returning to school. For graduate students, they may make the difference between getting accepted by the school of your choice and getting accepted at all. Your score can also position you for scholarships, fellowships, and other financial assistance and awards.

There are 4 major graduate admissions tests:

Graduate Record Examination (GRE): This 7-part test scores verbal, quantitative, and analytical abilities.

Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT): Most business schools rely heavily on these tests for narrowing the applicant pool. There are 9 sections that score verbal, mathematical, and analytical writing skills.

Medical College Admission Test (MCAT): Necessary for students entering a medical field, the test is 9 ½ hours long and is only given in April and August of each year.

Law School Admission Test (LSAT): Again, the scope of this test is very narrow; only those applying to law schools need take it. This 5-section test lasts about half a day, and an average score is enough to knock potential law students out of the running for very competitive schools.
