Or another way of asking it is: What GRE is enough to get in for an MBA?
This is one of those things that’s hard to predict – but we’re going to try to lay it out anyway, with some specifics!
What score is “good enough” is also something that may change radically within a single season. There have been slow changes over time, especially the last three years, as the GRE became more accepted at all of the schools, and that has accelerated between last season and likely this one. About a quarter of the students in the Class of 2022 at some schools got in with a GRE score, which is a massive shift from not that long ago, and we expect those trends to continue this year. Even with those increases, average GRE scores and ranges are still showing relative softness compared to the GMAT side based on the data we’ve seen coming in.
When trying to figure out if your GMAT scores are high enough, the biggest variable is which school we’re talking about.
