GRE Score- 330 Verbal- 164 Quant- 166

Tata Institute of Social Sciences

I recently took the GRE after having enrolled with Galvanize for their 45-day crash course. I scored 164 in Verbal and 166 in Quant on my first attempt. Reasons for why Galvanize was helpful are as follows-

  1. Galvanize suited me because they had a plan which fit within my time-limit and was affordable for me. I also felt that with my basic knowledge I did not need more than 45 days as that would only lead to burn-out. But for those who need more time, Galvanize has longer packages which I felt were more economical than the ones in the market.
  2. I liked the general layout of the Galvanize platform as it made doing tasks systematic. I’m a check-box type of person so I like to set short goals and check them off my list. For that, Galvanize provided short tasks on a daily basis that I just had to finish without worrying about what to do next.
  3. Both the Verbal and Quant sections of Galvanize were comprehensive and focused on getting basics right to solve every question. I also preferred to understand general strategies rather than learning how to do every sum. For that, the Galvanize instructors were very helpful as they did not hesitate to digress during the lesson if some helpful strategy or concept needed to be discussed.

My experience was that you need to be smart about how you spend your time preparing. Know your strengths and know your weaknesses. Move within the sections as that turned out to be the biggest lesson that Galvanize taught me !

I am Amit Somani, alumnus of IIT – Patna. One of my friends introduced me to Galvanize and their instructors made a study plan based on the diagnostic test with an emphasis on my weak areas. The question bank mimics exactly the type of question there are on actual GRE . One of the things that I like the most about Galvanize is that instructors are amicable and they cared as much as I cared about my score.By religiously following Galvanize’s GRE one month study plan, I increased my score by 19 points within a month and got 330/340. Thank you Team Galvanize!

GRE Score- 336 Verbal- 169 Quant- 167

Bangladesh University of engineering and technology

I’m a recent graduate of Electronic Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology. I recently took the GRE exam and scored a 336 in total (169 in Verbal & 167 in Quant). I was looking for quality GRE vocab apps when I came across the Galvanize vocab app and I really liked it. I then did some research and found their free GRE diagnostic test on their website. I took the test and I really loved it. That’s why I chose to sign up for their services. One of the things I really loved about Galvanize is that they give you a fixed study schedule based on your performance in the diagnostic test. It was amazing because it gave me daily activities for each of the 45 days that I’d signed up for. My experience was very intensive.

This I felt was in sharp contrast to other GRE prep service providers who only give you access to the question pool and leave you to it.  The Quant questions were constantly being updated and I thought they were really good. There is a very interactive discussion section where you can discuss and get your doubts cleared by the Verbal & Quant expert. I really liked the practice tests and the mock tests as well. I took 5 mock tests which were amazing because they really did simulate the real GRE test. They’ve done a really good job of having their mock tests be as close as possible to the real GRE. They also assign a personal coach (“course manager”) to every student. My course manager followed up with me every few days to ensure I was on track. This interactive experience I had was amazing. I do not know which other service providers can claim to provide such a level of personalization. I highly recommend Galvanize to anybody looking for that personalized touch to their GRE preparation.

I found the course I’d enrolled for appealing and comprehensive. The platform was evenly split between Verbal and Quant. I found a course appealing  and comprehensive. And also had adequate material for analytical writing! I mostly relied on the mock tests and the feedback that was delivered to me at the end of that.

The feedback was very insightful and it really pinpointed my weak points and that gives you a good insight into what exactly are your weaknesses and what you really read to improve on.

Apart from that, what I believe really helped me achieve my target score of GRE  was the GRE vocabulary app that Galvanized has on the Playstore.

Galvanize Test Prep course I think is a one-stop solution – you really don’t need to refer to any other material out there in the market. You should just follow your GRE study plan that is outlined in your course, keep in touch with your course manager and pay attention to the constant feedback you get. Thanks a lot again Galvanize.

Writing your Statement Of Purpose and getting Letter’s Of Recommendation is a tedious task and I needed help with it. I chose Galvanize on the recommendation of my friends. The universities which were shortlisted for me were very well thought of based on my overall academic profile. They were categorised under Ambitious, Practical and Safe based on the chances of my getting admitted into them. The documentation process was very easy to follow and Galvanize was always ready to help whenever I needed it. In order to secure admissions, your SOP, Resume and LOR’s need to be impactful and up to the point. Galvanize editors help with all of them and it’s really helpful.

The Galvanize Admission Counsellors were very professional and helpful. The webinars and live Video Conferences from counsellors gave me all the basic information I needed. They make sure they answer all your queries! Counsellors are very professional and helpful. The website UI is also well designed. College websites links, application deadlines are all mentioned on the front page which make things easier to follow and navigate through.

I’m really happy that I chose to enroll for the Admission Counselling. I managed to secure admits from multiple universities from the US!

One of the nice things about Galvanize is that their price is so affordable! Moreover, the GRE faculty teach the video lessons with such simplicity that even a novice like me could understand the concepts. I liked the GRE program at Galvanize, which is why I enrolled with Galvanize for Admission Counseling. As per my request, my Admission Counsellors shortlisted 6 universities based on my scores. They explained the procedure via a Google Hangouts call. I must say that the best thing is that Galvanize helps us help ourselves. I wrote all my SOPs, essays, etc and the Galvanize team reviewed it and gave their valuable suggestions. They helped me fine-tune my essays. The team also reviewed my application forms! I am still in the process of submitting my applications, and help from Galvanize is always extended. I have received admits from 2 reputed universities (Stevens Institute of Technology, New Jersey, and Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago) – thank you, Galvanize!

University selection based on your profile is a tedious task and requires proper guidance. I also wanted someone I could rely on for SOP and LOR reviews. That is why I enrolled with Galvanize.
I’m glad I did because Galvanize made the admission process easier, providing me with all the required resources.

Though many resources are available over the internet, being a working professional, I did not have enough time to search for the resources myself and then work on the process. I felt very at ease knowing that I could rely on Galvanize to address my queries and help me out with the admission process.

What impressed me most about Galvanize were the timely response for each and and every query during the admissions process. I would say to anybody who is busy and has no proper idea about the admissions process to definitely enroll with Galvanize Admissions.

Applying to universities is a risky and expensive process, so I was sure guidance was needed. I enrolled with Galvanize admissions counselling, which turned out to be a great decision.

Before Galvanize, I was confused about which universities would be best for me to apply to.  Galvanize evaluated my profile, enquired about all other factors like my preferred location, cost, and courses before giving me a final list of universities, which were suitable to my needs. My biggest fear was the SOP but Galvanize helped me personalize SOP’s for all of the universities I applied to.

What I liked most about Galvanize was the timely schedule for all the tasks in the application process. I will surely recommend Galvanize to my friends for its excellent team editing team, university selection and ensuring that the entire process moved in a timely manner. Thank you Galvanize for providing the best counselling! 

Let's do this together!
