Hi!

I’m a dual citizen (USA and Philippines) and I just registered for my GMAT using my USA citizenship. However, I read somewhere in the thread that it may be better to use one or the other depending on the schools I’m applying since a lot value diversity. Will schools see my citizenship when they receive my GMAT score or will it be based on my application?

Thanks!

Yes, applicant pool does matter. But... the point is that all the schools ask for citizenship & birth country in their application. So ultimately you will be considered as a Philippine-American candidate.
So... I do not think it really matters. Saying that in my personal opinion .... you did

Yes diversity is matter. You have to mention dual citizenship as US-Philippine in an additional essay as well as in application.

Thank you! Would you know if it’s better in my GMAT profile to put USA (I was born there) or Philippines?

If you were born in the USA .... definitely you need to put USA. You can explain/mention your Philippine connection in optional essay/app form.

I think you don't need to worry about this because during the school application you will fill all the details regarding nationality and citizenships. You can also use optional essay or main essay to mention this as diversity. So in anyhow, you still have a chance to showcase this. I think with GMAT Score Schools only look at the score and for the rest of the information, they will use your submitted profile data.
