I decided to further my education once I developed a passion for Chemical Engineering, my current major, at the middle of my junior year in college. I wanted to specialize in a field that I enjoyed studying about, and after taking specialized chemE courses during my sophomore and junior years, I decided that I wanted to go to graduate school for it.

Magoosh was the first link I found on Google when I searched for GRE prep tools, so I decided to give it a try. I liked that it was an online prep tool and when I read about its video lessons, flashcard apps and score predictors, I was sold. These features are unique and a refreshing change from the commonplace prep tools that offer practice questions and practice tests.

I found the entire experience to be extremely satisfying not only due to the informative video lessons and well-explained practice questions, but also because I could track my progress whenever I practiced questions. I had devoted only one month to prep for GREs, so it was important to know how much I progressed each day, and Magoosh helped me by showing me my score range for both sections. I didn’t have a chance to interact with the Magoosh staff, but I always liked Chris and Mikes’ video lessons and left nice comments on the ones I especially liked. You guys are awesome!

I felt really ecstatic when I saw my score because I did better on both sections than I ever had on any practice test (I took both Magoosh and PowerPrep practice tests). The time and money that I spent on Magoosh (my only source for GRE prep) was really worth it!

I am a rising senior pursuing a Bachelor’s in Chemical Engineering with a Psychology minor at Rutgers University. I’m looking to get a Master’s in either Chemical Engineering or Petroleum Engineering.

My biggest goal for the future is to have a successful career working for a petroleum company (like ExxonMobil or Shell). In this day and age of global warming, I’d like to help in making the non-renewable energy process more environment-friendly than it already is. Another goal would be to get into a top tier graduate school for chemical/petroleum engineering.
