Hi Karishma, thank you so much for your prompt response - I appreciate it. I am definitely thinking of giving it again.
With almost all the top 20 schools accepting GRE scores, I'm contemplating if it worth giving the GRE instead. What do you think?
You can switch to GRE if you feel there is value for you in it. Before you decide either way, think of the following things:
1. Are you more comfortable with the GRE pattern? (Vocab based Verbal and higher level but less tricky Quant)
2. Have you tried a practice test and found that you score better?
3. If yes, then why did you not opt for GMAT in the first place?
4. Was it because GMAT is still considered the test of choice for B-schools? (if yes, then nothing has changed for you to change your belief)
My point is this: Schools do accept GRE scores too now but they have forever accepted GMAT scores. GMAT has a proven track record of predicting academic success at B schools. GRE still needs to prove its predictive capabilities. It is possible that given two high scores - one in GMAT and other in GRE, the adcom will go the tried and tested route (This is opinion and speculation. Human behavior is not always predictable and admission decision is taken by people. Hence we can only speculate.)
If you feel you will score much higher in GRE as compared with GMAT, then there is certainly value in taking GRE. A high GRE score is more valuable than an average GMAT score (considering the schools to which you will apply). But mind you, hard work will be required in either case.
