admissions podcast Apr 08, 2020

The best way to learn what business school admissions officers are looking for is to ask them!

So that's exactly what we did.

Learn to Dominate Conditional Reasoning Questions on the LSAT

lsat Apr 06, 2020

There's no doubt about it, a lot of logical reasoning is necessary to do well on the LSAT. Between the logic games and logical reasoning questions, you need to be able to think critically and quickly identify logical fallacies if you're going to get a high LSAT score.

The good news is that critical thinking can be learned. It can be taught.

And here's more good news for you. Upwards of 35% or more of the LSAT questions you'll encounter on test day require your understanding of what is called conditional logical. It's a very precise pattern of reasoning that, once you learn to detect it and execute it properly, can enable you to get a lot more right answers on test day -- and to do so more efficiently.

Given that, wouldn't you agree that it's worth investing a little time to master this important skill?

Of course it is. And here's the best news for you. Our resident LSAT guru, Dave Hall, just released this short 19-minute video breaking it all down for you. In this video you'll...

admissions podcast Mar 11, 2020

Being put on the waitlist at your dream school isn't ideal.

You were hoping to be accepted outright, after all.

podcast Feb 26, 2020

A big part of maximizing your score on test day is how well you're able to focus and concentrate throughout the entire exam.

You've spent months learning all of the how-to's for answering questions correctly, but if you have "brain fog" and aren't able to think clearly and remember everything you've studied when it comes time to actually sit down and take your test, it's all for nothing. 

Optimal nutrition can play a huge role in maximizing your brain's performance so that you can maintain mental clarity for your best possible result. To discuss this important topic, we're joined in this episode by Dr. Barrett Deubert, a chiropractor and nutrition expert in Knoxville, TN, who shares practical and actionable nutrition hacks that you can employ throughout the entire process of preparing for and taking your standardized test.

Is Harvard Really Worth It? [Ep. 16]

admissions podcast Feb 12, 2020

A lot of people believe that if they can't get in to a top-tier college or graduate school, it's not worth going.

Yet, there are a lot of considerations that play into your decision to go back to school, and the prestige of the program is only one factor in choosing the school that's right for you.

In this episode of The Dominate Test Prep Podcast we catch up with Harvard Kennedy School of Government alumnus Jake Taylor who recounts his journey from working on Wall Street to teaching middle school math in Spanish Harlem to ultimately going back to graduate school at Harvard -- and he answers the question of whether it was worth paying full sticker price at Harvard vs. going to a less-prestigious school where he would have received scholarship money.

Take a listen to our conversation:

 



We discuss a number of important topics that can help inform your own decision about if/where to go to school, including:

Overcoming Test Anxiety [Ep. 15]

gmat gre lsat podcast sat Jan 29, 2020

Conventional wisdom tells us that if we study hard, high test scores will inevitably follow.

But what if we are unmotivated to study or hampered by fear of failure?

Or what happens if when we do study, we are plagued by feeling nervous and anxious, and we are not able to perform to our potential?

It's no surprise that if you enter your test feeling anything but focused and calm, you risk a subpar performance. But how does one easily get there?  

We answer those questions -- and more -- in this episode of The Dominate Test Prep Podcast as we are joined by Bara Sapir, CEO/Founder of City Test Prep, who shares proven techniques to help students master the "Inner Game" of test preparation.

  • Anxiety-management tips for the months, weeks, and days leading up to your exam;
  • The "backwards spin" technique to help you reverse anxiety if it presents itself during the exam itself;

How to do Social Media Right for an Admissions Edge [Ep. 14]

podcast Jan 15, 2020

A recent survey shows that 40% of admissions officers reported to have looked at a candidate's social media while reviewing his/her application, a trend that is expected to continue and even grow in the coming years.
