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.

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 would strongly recommend Galvanize Test Prep for the GRE. I prepared for 2.5 months, averaging 3-4 hrs/day

For the Quant Section – The tests on the online platform of Galvanize have a plethora of questions for each topic with different difficulty levels which would be the perfect preparation for test day.

By practising on the Galvanize platform as well as additionally on Readtheory, the tricks to solve the RC’s can easily be mastered. Galvanize will also personally guide you if you are finding it difficult to understand on your own. I also found that the Galvanize Vocab builder was very helpful when it came to learning GRE words.

That being said how you prepare is very important – Focus on your mistakes and why you made it. That is the most important thing which will increase your marks drastically. Thank you Galvanize!

GRE Score- 334 Verbal- 165 Quant- 169

Institute of Engineering and Management

First, I would like to provide some insight about my GRE scores.

Before I began my  preparation, my Verbal score was around 152 and Quant 162.

After preparing with Galvanize, my scores on the actual GRE were 165 (Verbal) and 169 (Quant).

This change occurred  in around only 20 days.

Galvanize’s mobile app for vocabulary is excellent as it has mnemonics associated with each word. Having around 1800 words it actually covers all the words present in Barron’s and Magoosh giving you a comprehensive preparation.

The mock tests, 5 of them are very helpful as they simulate the actual test very closely. The strategies taught in the verbal classes were quite helpful. As I had opted for virtual classes, my course managers were quite helpful in resolving my doubts and providing me guidance at any point of time.

So for me Galvanize worked wonders, for others I would suggest to give it a try. You will find learning to be fun and fall in love with learning again.

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!

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.

The Galvanize team helped me choose universities that fit my profile – with my dream schools and safe schools included to guarantee admits. Drafting an SOP is always tedious. Galvanize guided me through the making of my Statement of Purpose pointing out mistakes and indicating areas of improvement to make my SOP winning.
I thank Galvanize for the incessant support and guidance that was offered me throughout the process. Galvanize has helped me immensely. What better than getting an admit from an Ivy-League university for a program its known for?

Let's do this together!
