GMAT Test Dates in San Francisco
The GMAT is available year-round (nearly every day of the week and at several times during the day on most days), which offers San Francisco test-takers great flexibility in scheduling. Do note, however, that available time slots change continuously based on capacity and ongoing registration. Desirable slots fill up quickly, so make sure to register for the exam early (a month or more ahead of time) if you are dead-set on taking it on a specific day of the week at a certain time. You will find out which times are available at your chosen San Francisco test center when you register for the GMAT on mba.com. If your desired slot is not available at a given center, you can always try another one close by. To avoid added stress on test day, you may want to schedule your testing around such events as the Bay to Breakers race in May and the San Francisco Marathon in July or August, which can attract as many as 21,000 participants to San Francisco from around the world.
Taking the GMAT in San Francisco
San Francisco is known for its entrepreneurial spirit and eclectic, cultured population. If the sheer wealth of opportunities isn’t enough to invigorate you, visit schools such as the Stanford Graduate School of Business and the Berkeley Haas School of Business to get re-inspired about the value of an MBA (schedule a formal visit, including lunch and class attendance to demonstrate your commitment to the application process). With two powerhouse programs in the vicinity, you shouldn’t have any trouble motivating yourself to master those Data Sufficiency questions or Reading Comprehension passages. Remember that all the math problems and grammar rules you’re studying will pay off on test day and help you get that much closer to achieving your goal score!
Visit the Museum of Modern Art and the de Young Museum (in Golden Gate Park) to relax and help get you in the mindset to read dense passages about the humanities on the Verbal section of the GMAT. For extra cerebral stimulation, visit the American Conservatory Theater with your GMAT study buddies. Later, if you’re in the mood for some intellectual entertainment, an evening at the artsy Castro Theater (each show starts with the Wurlitzer organ) is a great way to cap off a day of mental athletics.
Looking for a place to hang out while you study? Try the historical Green Apple Bookstore and of course, the City Lights Bookstore in North Beach, famed hot-spot of the beat poets. Armed with a perfect iced coffee, you might just see that breakthrough you’re looking for in your next CAT score. Remember: you don’t have to let your life pass you by just because you’re studying for the GMAT! Knewton’s adaptive learning course offers unparalleled flexibility, so you can get the most aggressive and efficient score increase while maintaining your lifestyle and other commitments.
