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.

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 !

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.

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!

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?

The application process to foreign universities is daunting in terms of the quantity of documents required. Galvanize admission counselling helped streamline the entire process.
The team clearly laid down the plan for the months leading up to my university deadlines.
The universities were shortlisted based on several factors including an initial review conducted at the beginning of the counselling process. The list was extensive and well researched which helped me filter out universities based on my interests.
The drafting process for my SOP and LOR was exhausting and extremely time consuming. The admissions counselor at Galvanize helped me at every step with fast and reliable reviews on my SOP and diversity essays.
They also kept me motivated all this time with weekly reminders.
Ultimately, I would definitely say Galvanize AC helped me in achieving an exciting admit. Galvanize AC was definitely a crucial piece of my journey in applying for a Master’s abroad.

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!

At first, I thought I didn’t need any help applying to universities, because I was confident that this was something I could do by myself. However, once I understood the huge amount of competition out there, the gravity of the situation sunk in. I turned to Galvanize for help with my application process and it was the best decision I’ve ever made! My Admission Counsellor at Galvanize was extremely knowledgeable and dispelled all my concerns.
Right from my shortlisting universities to crafting my Resume and my Statement of Purpose, and discussing with my profs for my Letters of Recommendation, I was given a lot of support. The Galvanize Team also responded quickly to all my questions and made the entire apping experience a stress-free one! Thanks to Galvanize, I got accepted at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor – my dream school! Thank you, guys, you’re awesome 😀

Let's do this together!
