Meanwhile Kaplan, which runs GMAT training programmes, reports that in a recent survey most business students still opt for GMAT, rather than GRE. When asked which of the two tests they would complete if their target school accepted both scores, 55 per cent said they would take the GMAT and 12 per cent the GRE. Twelve percent said they would take both. Ironically, 47 per cent thought the GMAT more difficult than the GRE, while only 10 per cent thought the GRE the more difficult.

I was at Loyola University this week and heard from administration there that there are starting to look at the GRE as a possibility for Sellinger School admission.

that's great, GMAT will get tough competition. The student interested only in MS can also apply to MBA programs as well with single exam. :lol:
