Stanford and GRE

Apparently Stanford will accept GRE scores in lieu of GMAT scores to help potential students who cannot afford high application costs. To me, the whole idea seems ridiculous. People are still going to take the GMAT because all other schools require it, and unless you are 100% sure you're getting into Stanford (and who is?), you're going to apply to other schools as well. So the GRE becomes irrelevant (unless you want to spend even more money to take another test). Interesting how Stanford did not choose to reduce the one cost which would make a difference - the >$200 application fee!

So, it's true afterall, huh. A friend, who is not into MBA apps told me this. I immediately dimissed it off as seemed so ridiculous.

I totally agree with your viewpoint. Can't the logic behind this move at all!

So apparently the only guys benefitted by this would be those already applying for MS, and who would apply to MBA because they're not quite sure of their career goals.

I've been reading your blog for a little while now and I'm really enjoying it - good insight. A few fellow business school students and I just started a site called, which is an "open" community blog by, and for, the business school community. We'd be really interested in having you contribute postings and join the community. Check out the site and definitely sign up for an account so you can start posting. Hopefully it can start to be a universally useful resource for b-schoolers.

Also We'll be adding a link to your site, as a useful resource, and we'd certainly love a reciprocal link.
