Cost-Benefit Analysis

Throughout this website, we've used strategy to (1) look forward and then (2) reason backwards.  Specifically, to attend a Top 15 MBA Program, your #1 obstacle is simply being admitted and a 700+ GMAT is typically expected. 

As described, I am the only GMAT teacher who offers world-class GMAT knowledge and who guarantees I'll answer every GMAT question in 1 minute (Monkey-See) so that you'll have twice as much time, 2 minutes, to answer it (Monkey-Do). In contrast, the competition is half-qualified and cannot help you earn your personal-best GMAT score. There is no substitute for me teaching you the GMAT.

Accordingly, Shawn Berry's GMAT Service costs $10,000, pay-as-you-go.  Each of our first ten Test-Perfect-Review® iterations is $1,000 and our last five iterations are free. All of your instruction is 1–1, just you and me.

Some people readily understand that having me as your GMAT teacher is a unique competitive advantage in an admissions process where only 10–20% of students are accepted.  If that's you, great. Here is my contact information.

Other people have a different reaction, a knee-jerk reaction - "That's expensive".

But smart business people don't make an important career decision based on a knee-jerk reaction. Instead, smart people follow David Ogilvy's advice that "The best way to set a budget is to analyze the task." So let's analyze your GMAT task with a cost-benefit analysis on Shawn Berry's GMAT Service.

The full cost of Shawn Berry's GMAT Service is $10,000 and 150-200 hours of study.  Initially, you may think that this is a huge investment in your GMAT preparation. Actually, $10,000 and 150+ hours is just 4% of your MBA cost of ~$250,000 and ~4,000 hours of study.

The potential benefits of Shawn Berry's GMAT Service are: that you cut your GMAT errors in half and thus score 700+; that you gain admission to a Top 15 MBA Program; and that you increase your 30-year post-MBA career earnings by $1,000,000 to $10,000,000. Chart 9

So now ask yourself: if a $10,000 GMAT investment can be the difference in your gaining admission to a Top 15 MBA Program, is it worth doing?
