GMAT | GRE [#permalink] New post 12 Apr 2011, 11:33
I know this only serves to further reinforce your belief that applicants give standardized test results too much attention in the application process, but bear with for I am at an impasse.

Took the GMAT about 2 years ago and the GRE about a year later. The GRE was taken not to improve upon my GMAT for b-school chances but rather b/c I was preparing to apply to grad econ programs for which it was a requirement.

Here are my obvious options:
1) Submit GMAT only

2) Submit GRE only

3) Submit both the GMAT and GRE.

Would 3) give the appearance I don't have my priorities straight (i.e. trying to improve upon an already excellent GMAT)? Should I include an addendum explaining the GRE was for another graduate program or would this be disadvantageous b/c I ultimately didn't follow through and run the risk of coming across capricious?

Seems like the GRE could be worthwhile to include but it is hard to see it as a net gain short of not submitting the GMAT entirely. If submitting both is not in my best interest (which I am guessing will be your position): ceteris paribus, what is better a 770 GMAT (with only 87% quantitative) or a perfect 1600 GRE? Does an applicant with a GRE, regardless of score, not appear as committed as one with a GMAT?

Thanks for you time, patience.

Thanks Alex for the quick response. What's your take about standardized test scores on resume/CVs? I know they are used for recruiting more and more these days. Gauche?

If you really want to, go for it. Those who care will see it, those who don't care won't really care that it's on there.
