GRE/GMAT

Alright, graduating students. It’s time to start talking about what so many students planning to attend graduate school dread…
Entrance exams.

Not to fear, Career Services is here to help you on your way to preparing for your Entrance Exam. Today we’ll start with the GRE and the GMAT.

The GRE stands for the Graduate Record Examination and may be required for entry into graduate school for various programs (don’t worry, the program website will tell you if they require GRE scores). In 150 minutes it is designed to test your analytical writing, verbal reasoning, and quantitative reasoning in a multiple choice format. GRE scores are used to supplement your academic record and to give graduate schools an idea of your preparedness for graduate-level work.

The GMAT, on the other hand, stands for the Graduate Management Admission Test and is required by business schools for admission into MBA (Masters of Business Administration) programs. It’s a 4 hour exam chalk full of questions and tasks that measure verbal, mathematical, and analytical and writing skills.
