The Palo Alto area is known around the world as the center of Silicon Valley. Technology companies currently or formerly headquartered in the region include Google, Facebook, Skype, Hewlett-Packard, Tesla, Logitech, Pinterest, and PayPal. Approximately 9,500 companies operate in the city of Palo Alto, and they collectively employ almost 100,000 people. Palo Alto is one of the most well-educated cities in the world. About 80% of residents aged 25 or older have at least a bachelor's degree, and approximately 50% of the population also possesses a graduate or professional degree. The city's median household income is more than $137,000 per year, and per-capita annual income is nearly $79,000. Less than 6% of the local population lives in poverty, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Palo Alto has a large population of immigrants, with more than one-third of local residents born outside of the United States.

Palo Alto is also known for its proximity to one of the world's most prestigious postsecondary institutions, Stanford University (Stanford Research Park is located within the city itself). Stanford has been consistently ranked as one of the best universities in the United States and as one of the top universities in the world by several reputable methodologies. Stanford is a highly selective school with an undergraduate acceptance rate of about 5%. The university is particularly distinguished for its programs in business, economics, history, mathematics, chemistry, computer science, and engineering. A total of 31 Nobel Laureates, four Pulitzer Prize winners, 31 MacArthur Fellows, and 171 members of the National Academy of Sciences are or have been associated with Stanford University. Other area institutions for higher education include Palo Alto University (which offers focused undergraduate study in conjunction with local community colleges and selected graduate programs) and Menlo College in nearby Atherton (specializing in business training). At Manhattan Review, we look forward to making a continuing contribution to one of the world's great educational communities.

GMAT Prep Course Palo Alto - Photo of Student Anne

On the verbal sections, I would have struggled to perform this well had I not been coached by Chris on understanding the 'real meaning' or 'purpose' of passages and quotes. During the course I completely turned around my way of reading, from a superficial skim of the general line, to understanding the essential facts leading to the message, a key skill for GMAT.
