Minimum Instructor GMAT Percentile: The Minimum Instructor GMAT Percentile
is determined by the results of a GMACadministered GMAT and corresponding
percentile. All PowerScore instructors have taken an actual GMACadministered
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 prehiring 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!
