I recently re-took the GMAT and scored a 740 (Q49, V41).

Browsing through the forum, I have come to understand that while Q49 is by no means a bad score, schools tend to hold a 50-51 Quant score in much higher regard than a >90th percentile Verbal score.

No matter how much I tried, I couldn't seem to break 50 on the Quantitative section in practice tests, and am skeptical of my ability to improve upon my current score with more prep.

However, I decided to take the two free official GRE practice tests and scored 333 (Q170, V163) and 332 (Q169, V163) easily. Honestly, I was surprised at how easy GRE math is compared to GMAT math. (No pesky data sufficiency scenarios to deal with, more straight-forward verbiage, etc.)

Coming to the point, if I take the GRE and am able to repeat my practice test performance, would it be prudent to submit both GMAT and GRE scores? The rationale being, my average Quant score on the GMAT would be complemented by a decent Quant score on the GRE? I wonder if, paradoxically, it would communicate a perfectionist approach on my part and cast me in less favorable light with the AdComs.

I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Why not apply with the GRE score if you can get a high enough score? Schools don’t seem to be overly concerned or picky with GRE.

Hi icanhazmba,

First off, a 740/Q49 is an outstanding Score, so you can comfortably apply to any Business Schools that interest you. As such, taking the GRE is probably NOT necessary. You're ultimately asking Admissions questions though, so you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile and plans. There's a Forum full of those Experts here:

Hi icanhazmba,

If you score Q170 (and get a good verbal score) on your GRE, then there is no reason why you can’t just submit your GRE score. See how things go with your GRE, and then you can decide the next steps.
