When it comes to MBA admissions, the GMAT no longer stands alone. Today, hundreds of business programs in the U.S. accept the GRE General Test. While the two exams are interchangeable from an evaluation standpoint, they do vary quite a bit in format and style. Please click here for a list of the top MBA programs currently accepting the GRE.
The GRE is a 3 hour and 45 minute exam covering vocabulary, reading comprehension, basic algebra, geometry and other math and a scored analytical writing section. The exam is now also accepted by both Harvard Law School and the University of Arizona James E. Rogers School of Law. Look for more JD programs to follow suit in the coming years.
