Miller Analogies Test (MAT)

The Miller Analogies Test (MAT) assesses the analytical thinking ability of graduate school candidates and helps graduate schools identify candidates whose knowledge and abilities go beyond memorizing and repeating information.

The MAT is computer-based and administered in 60 minutes, making it an excellent option for candidates applying to the hundreds of graduate programs that accept MAT scores.
