Table Notes

Minimum Instructor GMAT Percentile: The Minimum Instructor GMAT Percentile is determined by the results of a GMAC-administered GMAT and corresponding percentile. All PowerScore instructors have taken an actual GMAC-administered GMAT and scored in the 99th percentile. Some other companies, including Kaplan and Princeton Review, allow instructor applicants to come to their offices to take a pre-hiring GMAT. However, since these GMATs are not administered by GMAC, and therefore do not produce national score percentiles, these companies have no minimum national standard.

Total Course Cost: Costs for our competitors may vary by location. The PowerScore GMAT course has a uniform national price of \$495.

Cost per Course Hour: These figures are rounded to the nearest whole number. The figures show how much a student pays per hour of lecture time (total course cost divided by total lecture hours) for each company. Lower figures are preferred!
