Most standardized graduate-school tests are designed to identify potential success or capacities for success. Your score is critical to your application, but it is not the only element. Undergraduate transcripts, recommendation letters, and admissions essays are other considerations.

Which Exam is Right for You?

Graduate Record Exam (GRE)

This exam is required for admission to most graduate schools and a growing number of business schools.

Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT)

The GMAT exam is a computer-based assessment mostly taken by prospective business school students. GMAT scores are considered heavily for admission.

Medical College of Admission Test (MCAT)

Almost all U.S. medical schools require students who hope to attend medical school to submit MCAT exam scores. Many schools do not accept MCAT exam scores that are more than three years old.

Law School Admission Test (LSAT)

This test is for prospective law students. Because the field of law is so competitive, the admission committee will usually accept candidates only if their undergraduate GPA and LSAT score more than fulfill a school’s admission standards.
