The schools I wish to apply for accept bothe the GMAT & GRE>

Will I be at a disadvantage if I opt for the GRE. How do top schools compare it to the GMAT. as there won't be much point if they rank atop GRE score to a lower GMAT score because they don't have the data to compare them. GRE as of next month changes so will be the first batch of the revised test. Will this stand against me. I'm considering the GRE as have a little more experience in it from previous revision and feel it maybe easier for me due to this.

Well, it depends on which type of schools or programs. For business schools, the GMAT is the standard test. A GRE is somewhat limited in terms of business schools accepting it. In other words, what if the primary school that you are applying to rejects you? In that case, you options become much more limited. You also mentioned some adjustment issues with the GRE due to changes in the near future.

I don't know your situation that well, but it seems that the GMAT is the safer, better option.

I'm applying for an MBA and all the schools I have chosen accept the GRE and GMAT. So am deciding which on is best. The GRE might beeasier for me but do schools value it the same way.

Thanks but the GRE is changing it's scoring in a months time. So it will be on a different scale, not sure how adcoms will view that

I have another question related to this thread, are GMAT scores accepted for MS Programs, considering GRE is the standard test for getting admitted to MS program?
