Applying to B-School with EA scores a mistake? (FT MBA)

Several top-tier full-time MBA programs (Columbia/MIT/Duke/Georgetown/Tepper) accept the Executive Assessment score instead of the GMAT. Although I have reached out to all those schools and they state that they have no preference for the GMAT over the EA, am I missing something? Will I be at any disadvantage while applying to B-Schools with the EA that I'm not thinking of? I'm aware that several Banks/Consulting firms ask for GMAT scores during recruiting but apart from that is there anything else?
