I helped someone with a somewhat similar profile secure an interview at INSEAD where he submitted a 650 GMAT, but he decided to attend Wharton where he submitted a GRE score that was very strong in quant but pretty low in verbal. He was French, a tiny bit less represented than Germans. Just feel iffy about our odds with a 650. Get a GRE score that is at least the equivalent of 700 GMAT - it might surprise you but this particular candidate and others did better on the GRE with no GRE specific prep.

Hi guys,

I am currently trying to evaluate my chances of securing a top MBA (looking at Booth, Dartmouth, Duke, Sloan, Yale as they are still open).

My background:
- 25y old with 3y of work experience for top 5 global investment bank with early promotion and top-ranking
- GMAT of (only) 650 (37 verbal & 42 quant)
- From Western Europe, graduated from top business school (active in extr-curricular)

Thanks a lot for your help!

I agree with Farrell. In 2017, I scored a 590, 640, and 610 in GMAT at three attempts. I gave up on my dream and decided to quit! In 2019, I again felt like studying for GMAT, but this time one of my friends suggested to me about GRE. With just 2 weeks of study, I scored a 325/340 with Quant 168 (93rd Percentile). This is equivalent to a GMAT score of 710.
