1. What is the difference between the GMAT and GRE?
The GRE is used to apply for a variety of graduate school programs, while the GMAT is used primarily for business and MBA programs. Most top business schools, such as the UCLA Anderson School of Management, the USC Marshall School, or Pepperdine’s Graziadio Business School, allow students to choose which test to take. If you’re considering other programs besides business school, the GRE allows more flexibility. In general, the GRE is considered to have a slightly more difficult Verbal section, while the GMAT has a more difficult Quantitative section. Most business schools say they weight both tests equally, but schools that do have a preference usually prefer the GMAT. If you’re applying only to business school, try a practice test of each to see which you prefer, and go with the GMAT if you don’t have a preference.
2. How many times can I take the GMAT?
Students may take the GMAT up to five times within a consecutive year, with at least 16 days between tests. The score report sent to schools, however, includes scores from all test dates, not just your highest score.
3. Where/when can I take the test?
The GMAT is offered at computer test centers around the United States. The closest centers to Los Angeles are in Culver City, Alhambra, Northridge, Pasadena, and Gardena. Pending availability, you can choose your preferred date and time (morning, mid-morning, or afternoon).
4. What’s a competitive GMAT score for schools like USC?
The average GMAT score for UCLA’s Anderson school is 719, with 80% of students scoring between 680-750. The USC Marshall School’s full-time MBA students had an average score of 708, with 80% of students scoring between 680-740. Check with the schools to which you’re applying, and strive to score at or above average.
5. When should I start studying for the GMAT?
Most students will devote at least a few months to preparations, and many will devote more. You should take a diagnostic test as soon as you’ve decided that the GMAT is in your plans. If your diagnostic score is significantly below average for your goal schools, plan to devote several months to preparation. Even students who score close to or at their goal should plan to spend at least a month preparing to ensure a good score.
