Veritas Prep is an elite GMAT Test Preparation and MBA Admissions Consulting company, founded by Yale School of Management graduates Chad Troutwine and Markus Moberg. Sensing the growing student disappointment with existing GMAT Prep options, Moberg and Troutwine designed the most advanced GMAT preparation program ever created. In addition to elite GMAT Test Preparation services, Veritas Prep offers admissions consulting services for students seeking to gain admittance to the top MBA programs in the world.


All Veritas Prep GMAT instructors have scored in the 99th percentile on an actual GMAT exam. In addition, they all have significant teaching experience. Veritas is able to attract the very best instructors by paying 2 to 3 times the industry average.

Veritas Prep's GMAT Courses are distinguished by their length; Veritas Prep offers more hours of live instruction than any other GMAT Preparation Company. Where other programs offer fewer than 30 hours, Veritas Prep offers 42 hours. As a result, Veritas Prep's instructors have the time to start from the basics, and teach up to the advanced topics, leaving nothing out. Veritas Prep also offers live telephone support, and provides their students with more computer adaptive practice tests than any other GMAT Test Preparation company.

Also, Veritas Prep offers The Official Guide for GMAT Review, 11th Edition for just $10.00; the lowest price offered for this book by anyone. They also offer a free GMAT practice test on their site, so everybody can start pinpointing their weaknesses. The free GMAT practice test is computer-adaptive, just like the real test, and includes all three sections.

Virtual Veritas

In addition to its live, in-person courses, Veritas Prep offers a popular online course, called Virtual Veritas. These courses are live, interactive online courses that cover all the same information as the in-person course. These courses are also 42 hours, and are perfect for students who live too far from any in-person classrooms.

MBA Admissions Consulting

Veritas Prep offers MBA Admissions Consulting services to students who wish to gain an upper hand on their MBA applications. Veritas Prep employs head consultants to help students market themselves to MBA admissions committees. All of these consultants are graduates of top MBA programs (Columbia, Harvard, and Wharton amongst many others), and all have served on admissions committees themselves. Veritas Prep offers the following consulting services[2]:

  • Comprehensive Admissions Consulting - Students work with Head Consultants through every aspect of the MBA admissions process.
  • Hourly Packages - Students work with Head Consultants on the specific areas of the application they feel they need help with.
  • Essay/Resume Editing and Evaluation - Students have their essays/resumes reviewed, and work with an evaluator to ensure their quality
  • Interview Preparation - Students conduct a mock interview with a former admissions representative, to better prepare themselves for the real school interviews.

How It Works

Students first meet with their Head Consultant in a client interview. Using the information from this first meeting, the Head Consultant works with the student to draft a step-by-step admissions plan. The Head Consultant helps the student choose what schools to target and craft a powerful application.

In addition to working with a Head Consultant, each student will also work with a Specialist for each school to which they apply. These Specialists help the student take their powerful application, and fine-tune it to perfectly address what each school is looking for.[3]

Veritas Prep has Specialists from all of the following schools:

Business School Selector

On Tuesday, May 20, 2008, Veritas Prep launched the Beta version of their Business School Selector. This selector takes in data about a candidate's profile, then generates a list of optimal schools for that student. These optimal schools are the highest ranked schools that a student with the given profile could reasonably be accepted to. The Business School Selector is not intended to be a comprehensive tool for all students and profiles, but should provide a good starting point for students.[4]
