Hey all,

So I went to drop-in-advising at UC Berkeley Haas (I went to Berkeley undergrad), and an admissions counselor explicitly told me Haas' MBA program prefers the GMAT to the GRE, although they do accept the GRE for some candidates. In their view, they feel the GMAT is more reflective of b-school success, particularly with the quant portion.

Does anyone know if this is true of any other t16 school? I'm not sure, but I heard UCLA Anderson also prefers GMAT over GRE. Most other schools say they weigh the GRE and GMAT equally on their websites, but there could be more that meets the eye.

I'm personally planning to take the GRE over the GMAT, so I'm looking at schools to rule out, like Haas.

Thanks.

If you are someone who really have an option of choosing between the two, go for GMAT. There may be some reasons for some, who may have taken GMAT 8 times but still couldn't reach their target score, and so on - other than that, I could see no reason for a starter, if you want to go for an MBA, to start with GRE over GMAT.

As Wilde once said [ Your profile name is one of Wilde's best creation] - " I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best". So go for the BEST.

All the best. Cheers !!

You will want to always assume b-schools prefer the GMAT for the near future. The GMAT has long been the currency of MBA admissions, so even though most schools have become more open to the GRE, they have years of data to evaluate candidates with from the GMAT. So focus on prepping for the GMAT unless the GRE is a better option for you personally

Tepper and INSEAD also prefer the GMAT.
If you are debating between the two tests, consider reading this post on our blog: https://aringo.com/should-you-take-the-gre-or-the-gmat/
