Well you can! Attend any four of the five Graduate Pathways events listed below (excluding the Kickoff) and you will be eligible for a $150 GRE or GMAT test prep course! This course is normally valued at $800.

You can even attend the workshops (Shaping Your Future at, Choosing the Right, and Paying for Graduate School) online through a special Canvas course! To register for the Canvas course, please complete this quick survey. Please be aware that the course only includes the PowerPoint presentation from the workshop, rather than a live recording of the workshop.

The Evening with Don Asher event and the Graduate & Professional School Fair are in-person only events, and will not be available for "online" attendance. To be eligible for the discounted GRE|GMAT Test Prep Package, you must plan to attend at least one of these two events in person.

His fast-paced presentation is highly informative and a must-attend for anyone who wants to learn about some of the key secrets for getting into grad school.
