Overall I would rate my GRE preparation experience with Manhattan Elite Prep and my instructor Olaf as excellent. All GRE topics and material were well-covered. The GRE tutoring was great, and the possibility to take real-like tests was awesome. The GRE course material and the administrative support were also outstanding. I was very impressed with Olaf's teaching ability, preparedness, his knowledge of the subjects, his responsiveness to my questions and his accuracy. What made me choose Manhattan Elite Prep over their competitors was their location.
"My experience with Tom was extremely positive, and I ended up getting accepted to all three schools that I applied to (with scholarship/fellowship offers to Minnesota and Boston College). I would highly recommend using Tom’s services to anyone, as he seems to have a strong passion for Admissions Consulting. Tom helped ease my nerves about the Admissions process, and ended up being a crucial asset for my application process. Also, I like that he is very upfront and honest when dealing with students (at least in my experience with him). I feel that Tom can help with applications to pretty much any type of graduate program, he seems to generally know what any kind of program would want to see in a candidate."

"Marc was an excellent instructor, very organized and patient. He did a great job helping me improve my math score and with the analytical writing sections. I strongly recommend him. I had an excellent experience working with Marc on identifying my strengths and weaknesses. He has been patient and very flexible with my schedule. I strongly recommend Manhattan Elite Prep for a GRE Prep course." Felipe K. (5 out of 5 Rating on Google+)
