What Our Students Are Saying

GRE particpant Joe C. was able to take a step closer to fulfilling his professional goals by taking a UTSA Test Prep Workshop:

"The GRE test prep course I took resulted in a 10 point increase on my official GRE exam. The course taught by Adam Johnson was great. After the prep course, Adam continued to answer questions until I took my GRE exam. I can now apply to the top physician assistant programs throughout the U.S.!"
