## I think that GRE score is more competitive. But if you feel there’s room to improve I’d take again.

thank you both! I am planning on taking again, so fingers crossed!

## I think it depends on where you’re applying and what their average is (if you decide to list just one). Theoretically, if the school’s average GMAT is 700, then they need a candidate with 730 to offset your score and maintain that average. There is a 4% probability (unadjusted—which I think is fine for the purposes of this analysis) they’ll get a 730 candidate. If the school’s average GRE is 320, then they need a candidate with a 325 to offset your score and maintain their average. It’s hard to determine the probability of a 320 and a 325. But we know anecdotally 320 is somewhere around 80% and 330 is somewhere around 330%. Using those as endpoints and graphing an exponential decay function (as you would expect on that side of a bell curve), our analysis suggests there’s ~5% chance of obtaining a 325 candidate to offset your score. Therefore, you should submit the GRE. BUT the tests are not necessarily viewed as comparably as that so there is likely a lot of nuance in the process (which I’m just now realizing is probably what you came here to get advice on vs an overthought statistical approach lol). Maybe you submit both scores and let them report whichever one is better for their rankings? Honestly, I suspect if you got a 670 GMAT you can raise your GRE several points and hit that golden 320 threshold score. Also, this analysis assumes you have balanced scores on both exams (if you don’t, you might present the exam with the more balanced score).

Give us more tips pls
