So i was recently reading , that top business schools like Harvard and Columbia and other MBA schools have started accepted GRE as well as GMAT
. Considering my terrible result with the GMAT , i was wondering if one is easier than the other? or if anyone has taken BOTH and have any recommendation. Im also a little hesitant on taking the GRE, im not sure how this looks in terms of being considered a good candidate. Any advice?

As an engineer, the math sections of both the GRE and GMAT are the same. However the verbal section on the GMAT is slightly easier compared to the GRE. The verbal part of the GRE felt like memorization with all the words and analogy comparisons.
