    GMAT is geared towards business-based degrees – business, finance, accounting, etc. I had to take it for my MS in Accounting program. If you’re doing computer science, I’d stick with the GRE, since that’s what you’ll need for the PhD program eventually anyway.

    Wait, only a 300? Are you sure?  The scores only range from 200-800, so that’s not even an indicator of a good score! Also, GMAT scores are only good for 5 years as well. I’m not sure how different the two tests are honestly, since I knew I only needed to take the GMAT. Maybe talk to the program and see what they recommend or prefer. I know some prorgams prefer one or the other even if they accept both.

    I took the GRE and I think it really helped my application. The GRE is using a new scoring system and colleges are having difficultly understanding a good score – While the GRE offers a conversion page, any one with some test-knowledge knows that this is just their best guess.
