GRE scores for top consulting firms

Selwyn's picture
Rank: Baboon | 158

I was wondering whether my Verbal 167 and Quant 165 scores are good enough for MBB and also top healthcare boutique consulting firms? Should I spend time retaking it? Like would a Q 168, v 168 score make any meaningful difference?

Lower Q and higher V didn't close doors at any MBB for me. Focus on networking and casing.

They use GMAT as a filter especially at schools outside of the M7, and I would imagine GRE serves the same purpose.

A top 1% GMAT can help get you interviews, especially outside of MBB, I'm not sure that a top 1% GRE stands out as much on that front.
