**COVID-19 IMPACT ON GMAT/GRE: Due to COVID-19's impact, both the GMAT and the GRE offer online testing options. If you intend to apply to the Full-Time MBA for 2022, you should expect to take either the GMAT or the GRE and begin preparing as soon as possible to give yourself every opportunity to score well. Preparing for and scoring well on either the GMAT or GRE is a great way to increase your odds of not only being accepted into the FTMBA, but also increases the odds of receiving a competitive scholarship. To prepare for the GMAT or GRE, take a moment to visit our blog to read: GMAT & GRE—Getting the Score You Want.
