Just in Time for the Holidays: TEP Charter Receives Manhattan GMAT Donation


In August, Manhattan GMAT declared that it would donate 10% of its revenue to TEP, a charter school in Washington Heights (a neighborhood in NYC) started by Manhattan GMAT Chairman Zeke Vanderhoek. Manhattan GMAT has finally made good on its pledge and donated over $100,000 to the school.

Manhattan GMAT believes the teaching profession should attract the most talented candidates to the field, and we are proud to support the students at teachers at TEP as they pursue this goal.

Tougher to defer nowadays


Businessweek reported last week that it’s getting harder and harder to get many business schools to defer your offer of admission for a year.  Some business schools are even trying to curtail the practice altogether.  So don’t plan on applying a year early and hope they’ll keep a seat warm for you.  If you find yourself in this position, the comforting thought is if they let you in once already, they ought to  just let you in again.

On the bright side, your GMAT score will still be good!
