Unofficial: informal;casual; unorthodox; not politically correct
GMAT: gateway to the best international B-schools
Vlog: a blog in which the postings are primarily in the form of videos
At Aristotle Prep, we have a co founder – Sarfraz – who best epitomizes everything that the word unofficial stands for – he is informal, unorthodox and definitely not politically correct. He is also terrific at what he does – teaching, creating content, counselling.
The Unofficial GMAT Vlog is Sarfraz’ attempt to connect directly with his students. These are informal bite-sized videos in which Sarfraz will cover various GMAT and B-school admission related insights, questions, strategies, tips, myths and more, all in his unique inimitable manner.
Sarfraz is as knowledgeable about the GMAT as he is about B-school admissions, which enables him to provide a truly all encompassing perspective to students. He is also not scared of calling a spade a spade, so you will hear him say things in his vlogs that most others would shy away from. All in all, you will find his vlogs incredibly entertaining and informative at the same time.
You can find an index of the Vlogs below. Sarfraz puts up new vlogs regularly so make sure you subscribe to his channel or keep coming back to this page to check out the next vlog. Happy Reading!
