My advice to people is to always take GMAT if you think you can kill it. Schools will accept either, but rankings still tend to focus on the GMAT—meaning that having a candidate with a nosebleed GMAT will be more beneficial than one with a nosebleed GRE. If it matters: 760 w/ HBS and GSB acceptances.

When I was helping out at admission at a top 10 business school, they didn’t care which test you took but interested to hear what others think

They do look at it the same

99th percentile is 99th percentile .

But it’s worth nothing some employers at the MBA may have preference for the GMAT

☝🏻this is true. I have a couple friends who took the gmat again during the internship to boost it past 750 to try to get to big 3 (we didn’t go to a core school)

Does it make a difference in banking ?

They say no difference. And I would believe no difference in evaluating whether you’re qualified for the program. However, for “fit,” I would say high score favors GMAT and low score favors GRE for their stats reporting. GMAT goes into rankings, GRE does not

On balance, having a high GMAT score is thought to look slightly better than a high GRE score. But if you have a high GRE score already, it’s almost certainly not worth the time to study and do another test. Use the time on your essays
