The GMAT team is on the road this month visiting cities all over the country with our Road to Business School events.  With admissions competition still fierce at top MBA programs, and the MBA job market improving, students and professionals seeking to rebound or advance will want to know invaluable strategies about how to get into business school. For those of you in the LA area that are considering business school, join us on August 11th for our Road to Business School event.  This event is a fantastic opportunity to network with admissions officers from top MBA programs around the nation and the world, learn key strategies for the GMAT, and hear from experts on the admissions process.  Here are the event details:

To prepare for this event, you’ll want to first register; it’s completely free, but space is limited.  Next, join our Road to Business School Inner Circle contest for a chance to win an edge over the competition.  Next, take a moment or two to jot down your top questions for the admissions officers from the schools you are interested in so that you are ready to make a great first impression. You may even want to get your elevator pitch ready just in case you get put on the spot with one of the admissions officers from your top choice. Finally, do a bit of research on your top schools before the event. A great place to start is the school’s Twitter feed. To get you started, here is a list of the schools joining us in Los Angeles:
