GRE Scores & Submission Rates at the Top 50 U.S. MBA Programs



Last Updated on April 26, 2024 by Robert C. Hoopes

In a surprising turn of events, recent analysis has revealed that the GRE has made a comeback in 2023 after appearing to plateau in 2022. A total of 23 out of the top 54 U.S. business schools saw an increase in GRE submission rates, with an average increase of 7.6 percentage points. This comes as a blow to the GMAT, which continues to lose its dominance with decreases at 39 out of the 54 schools.

Stanford University led the pack in average GRE scores, while Yale University boasted the highest median scores. However, data on GRE score ranges at the top 50 B-schools showed significant variations in scores required for admission. Interestingly, the number of schools requiring admissions testing has decreased, with only 20 out of the top 54 schools mandating testing, down from 37 schools in the previous year.

Some schools experienced significant declines in both GMAT and GRE submission rates, while others saw increases. Notably, the number of schools with higher GRE submission rates than GMAT rates has doubled in 2023. Key data points also indicate the average submission rates of GMAT and GRE at the top 10 and 25 B-schools, comparing 2023 to 2022.

Overall, the data paints a picture of a shifting landscape in admissions testing for the top business schools in the United States. The GRE is clearly making a comeback, while the once-dominant GMAT is losing its popularity among applicants. As schools continue to adapt to these changes, it will be interesting to see how this trend plays out in the coming years.
