GRE vs GMAT? [#permalink] New post 05 Oct 2013, 09:44
Is it easier to get into a Top B-School with a GRE rather than a GMAT?

Just came across this article from Poets & Quants "Schools Accepting Lower GRE Scores"

"As more business schools agree to accept Graduate Record Exam scores in lieu of GMATs, some admission consultants have been advising clients to submit GRE scores when they perform poorly on the GMAT. The stated reason for the strategy: Some ranking organizations, such as U.S. News, use GMAT scores to rank MBA programs. So an admissions office might be overly sensitive to a low GMAT score, but might pass on a lower GRE. (...) The University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, which said that 5% of its applicants last year submitted GREs, provided U.S. News with average scores for the old GRE test–not the newly revised exam. The school reported that the average verbal score for enrolled MBAs was 560 and the average quant score was 635. Combined, that’s roughly equivalent to scoring in the 65th percentage. Wharton’s average GMAT, meantime, is 718, nearly the 94th percentile. So the difference at Wharton has been fairly significant."

Any thoughts on this?

As Im currently preparing for the GMAT as I wish to start an MBA fall 2014, I all of a sudden considering doing a GRE instead - as it seems it allows a lower score and still acceptance to a top B-School.
