Schools accepting lower GRE score


Can anybody suggest to me any MBA programs that accept lower GRE scores? I scored 153 on Verbal and 160 on Quantitative. I am looking for an MBA program preferably with a specialization in supply chain management or operations management.

What kind of school are you aiming for? Also, what's your background like? Some schools will waive the GMAT / GRE if you have solid work experience or other qualities. Chapman in California for example will waive the tests if you have a graduate degree with a 3.2 GPA (from an accredited school... or did you undergrad in a subject like accounting and got a 3.2 or higher GPA.) Something to consider, depending on your goals.

That would be competitive score at most European, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Asia except Singapore schools.

For the US, UConn is a very interesting school and they have offered full scholarship to those at your GRE range.

William and Mary or Gabelli or Williamet Atkinson, schools at States that is a bit quieter such as Atlanta, Georgia or Bauer Houston Texas are also within your score range.

Having said that all those schools look for things that are beyond test-score. They need someone who is smart, positive, someone who values team-work and has a career that speaks for their quality and voluntary experience that speaks for characters.

Show them who you are and the best you can aspire to and I don't believe any number would define you.

Yes, that's not a terrible score by any means. Do you think you could do better on the GMAT? If so, try to take it.

Thanks for the reassurance. I was aiming high (Yale, Stanford, Harvard), and I feel that my GRE scores are low. I will take the GMAT.
