GMAT and GRE - which to report [#permalink] New post 02 Nov 2011, 07:17
Hi,

New user here - would seek the view of aspirants, current students and admission consultants alike.

I have taken the GMAT twice and scored a 670 and a 690. I am now contemplating taking the GRE instead, as I don't believe I am doing well on the GMAT basis comparison to my GPA, honours in life and past demonstrated scholastic aptitude. I have been taking practice tests and scoring consistently over 1500 in the GRE (750+ in Math and 700+ in Verbal). I am planning to take the GRE before the 2nd round deadline and then apply using this score. Is this fine/advisable? I mean there's nothing that is wrong per procedure here, but what do people think about adcom's reception of GRE scores. I did speak to a couple of admissions representatives who said they don't differ in their opinion on the tests. I pointed out that the GRE is often seen as simpler, to which she and he said that they concentrate more on the percentiles than the score i.e. a 750 Math for them is somewhat akin to a 80 percentile in the GMAT and similarly for verbal.

Look forward to thoughts on this. Best regards

Your plan is fine, but remember, the GMAT in top programs is still a new *thing*. There aren't solid stats on acceptances for GRE scores. The problem you will run into is people say the "GRE is easier", thus even if you score well on the GRE, you must sell your remaining parts of the application to be a competitive applicant.
