Grad School Tests 

Lincoln Park Kaplan Center

2828 N. Clark, suite 415


If you're thinking about applying for grad school but are nervous about the required standardized tests, you might want to consider taking a free practice exam at a Kaplan instructional center. The trial runs are simulations of the real thing, with strict time limits enforced by a proctor, and your results are available immediately. Needless to say, they're trying to sell you some test prep for the real thing, but you don't have to buy. On Tuesday, May 8, Kaplan's Lincoln Park location will administer a practice GMAT at 6 PM and a practice GRE at 6:30 PM. The MCAT will be offered on Monday, May 16, at 6 PM. Tests will also be given in May at Kaplan's downtown location, 205 W. Randolph. Registration is required; call 1-800-527-8378 or visit for more information.
