Hello,

I took both the GMAT and the GRE. While I feel my quant score was representative of my true ability, I didn't feel my verbal score was a fair reflection of my skills. So I took the GRE only to demonstrate my verbal ability. Surprisingly, I did better on the GRE verbal (which is supposed to be much harder than the GMAT verbal). I am an Indian male from the herbal products industry (yes there are non-IT people in India :D )

My GMAT score:

Overall - 710 (92%)
Quant - 50 (92nd Percentile)
Verbal - 35 (75th Percentile)

My GRE score:
GMAT score equivalent - 750
Quant - 167 (95th Percentile)
Verbal - 165 (95th Percentile)

Will these two scores, put together, convince all ad-coms that I am more capable of handling the academic rigour of their curriculum? I do understand that the application process is a holistic one, but purely from a standardised test score, will this score be enough for all business schools, including the top 5?

Yes, those scores would demonstrate capability to handle the most rigorous MBA curriculums… That said, your GPA should also demonstrate this. As you note, the adcoms’ evaluation will be holistic. These scores together “do the job” – as long as the rest of your application is strong.

And you will certainly bring a distinctive industry background! Good luck.

Hello,

Should I report both the GMAT and GRE or just the GRE score?
