Congratulations, Code Name Rain Man!

In a closely contested game aired on television last night, Veritas Prep GMAT Instructor George Yates won his initial contest on the popular game show Jeopardy!. Blending his knack for quick, accurate answers under pressure – the very same skills the propelled him to a 99th percentile GMAT score – with an impressive array of knowledge ranging from hard rock melody recognition to prominent literary heroes, George took the lead heading in to Final Jeopardy! and wagered (and answered) correctly to narrowly edge the returning champion.

A former fighter pilot and current flight simulator instructor, George earned the code name “Rain Man” while in the military with his broad knowledge base (and noted affection for Jeopardy!). He currently teaches Veritas Prep GMAT courses in Woodland Hills, California, and can be seen defending his Jeopardy! championship tonight (at 7pm on channel 7 in Southern California; check your local listings for the air time in your market).

Congratulations, George!
