Any MBA candidate or grad know if b-schools truly do weight the GRE the same as the GMAT? Got avg score on GMAT and debating the GRE...

If you got an avg score on GMAT, you'll get an average score on GRE too. Don't think GRE is a joke. PhD candidates are taking it.

PwC PhD candidates are tested on different things than MBA candidates. For example, if you are struggling with Quant, you should try the GRE since verbal counts more there and quant is easier. Either way, I personally had the same dilemma but opted for the GMAT since admissions are more used to this benchmark and therefore they would not question an "average" score since they know what it stands for
