GRE Scores By School

  • Posted by - 153devon - on 14 February 2015 - 9:28pm

    Hi Thomas,

    I'm trying to determine whether my GRE score is competitive enough for the schools listed below, or whether I should retake it to try to increase my quantitative score. I got 168 on verbal and 156 on quant, for a total of 324. Apparently this translates into 650 GMAT equivalent. I'm applying to MIM programs at the following schools:

    London Business School
    IE Business School
    HEC Paris
    ESCP Europe

    I'm reaching out to my admissions contacts as well, but I figure you might have asked them before and have this information handy. It would be good to know, too, whether schools typically look specifically for a breakdown between quant vs. verbal or generally just look at the GMAT equivalent all-in score. Any guidance is appreciated.

      Hi there,

      as from my experience, a GMAT score of 650 (or the equivalent GRE score) would be "sufficient" for all these schools. If a school should not accept you - which I don't hope - then the reason will not be your GMAT/ GRE score therefore but something else. You should check on the homepage if they all accept the GRE, however. I think yes, but make sure this is true.

      Best wishes
