Hello Everyone,

I work for large Pharma. I have a PhD (GPA:4.0) from a top Ivy League university in Engineering. I received the best dissertation award across all Engineering departments from my university. I have published more the 10 research articles in top-tier journals. I am thinking of applying to the APD program at Mckinsey. My GRE scores aren't that great (Q800, V650). Do you think I should take the GMAT before applying? Thanks for your help!

is it really real?

No, an Ivy PhD will be more than enough to get a Round 1 invite from McKinsey. You'll be taking the PST in the first round so they will assess your quant skills there.

Thanks for the comments! I am worried about my less than ideal GRE verbal score. I think I can do better if I take the GMAT, but I will lose time on my case interview preparation.
