People that have taken the GMAT exam show the initiative and drive that we see in many of our members
Arlington, TX (Vocus) September 1, 2009
You receive great scores on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), and a weight has been lifted off your MBA seeking shoulders. You picture a bright future since a high GMAT score can open doors to top business schools. Why not broaden your horizons and add Mensa member next to that top business school on your resume? From Sept. 1-30, 2009, Mensa will waive the application fee for anyone with a qualifying GMAT score.
A score of 95 percent or higher on the GMAT qualifies for Mensa, no matter what year you took the test. The GMAT exam is a standardized assessment that helps business schools assess the qualifications of applicants for advanced study in business and management.
A person must send in their application by Sept. 30, 2009, but has until Dec. 31, 2009 to submit his or her test scores. This is to compensate for the time it takes to receive requested test scores. The application can be accessed at http://www.us.mensa.org/application. On the application, input "Free GMAT Month" in the promotional box.
"People that have taken the GMAT exam show the initiative and drive that we see in many of our members," said Pam Donahoo, Executive Director at American Mensa. "Our business-minded members have shown up on shows such as 'The Apprentice,' even receiving kudos from Donald Trump for their membership. By offering free GMAT score review, we are opening our doors to innovative people that want to connect and network with like-minded individuals."
If a person does not qualify with a GMAT score, American Mensa accepts more than 200 tests for prior test score review. A condensed list is available at http://www.us.mensa.org/scores. You can also take the Mensa Admission Test ($40) to see if you qualify. For testing in your area, please visit http://www.us.mensa.org/testing. Once approved for membership, annual dues are $59.
