ColoHox has hit it on the head. GMAT is business graduate focused.

It is very dependent on what your goals are. At the time I took the Exam, the GMAT was the gold standard across the top twenty programs, and if you wanted to go be a corporate strategy consultant (McKinsey, Booz, Bain, BCG) you must attend a top 20 program. My program was 26th, I was a night student, and I live in Cleveland so I couldn't even land interviews. But then again I didn't even know I wanted to be be a strategy consultant till I was in the MBA program.

On the other hand, if you goals do not include relocating for your dream job, Find out what the local programs require, and also find out how successful their career offices are are getting people jobs \ internships \ whatever you are looking for.

If you are looking at going past an MBA, an AACSB accredited school is a must, as is a regionally accredited school.

Ultimately, do not sign up for 30K per year to go to a private school unless you really think it will pay off. Local state schools can be just as effective in getting a job locally. Unless you work in financial services or for a bank and they pay 100% tuition reimbursement, then by all means get the biggest brand name degree possible. So many people I went to school with had it covered 100%, it almost made me want to get a bank job.

Heck, sometime the state schools have a much more powerful alumni network than the private schools that are ranked higher. The Ohio State University for example.

I know, I know, totally off-topic at this point. Sorry.
Hey, I'm trying to remember this stuff from 1998 or 1999. But I know fish in the fish tank was a question on the test.

I said that I'd go back for my PhD 5 - 10 years after I got my Masters. It's been 11 years and I still haven't decided that I'm ready for that level of self punishment again.

All getting my Masters did for me was making the getting and keeping of jobs easier. It hasn't made a difference in salary or scope of responsibility.

The school I'm looking at requires one of the tests if your undergrad GPA is under 3.0. Mine was a 2.8 and is from 10 years ago. I'm looking at the school mostly because of location, scheduling and my employer gets a 20% discount.

I'm not really concerned with getting a job right away. My current career is a young man's game and I know I can't do it forever due to various reasons. I'm more looking for something to do if I make to pension in 20 years (assuming it's not bankrupt by then)

Before suggesting that I wait until I figure out what direction to go in I do have a time limit. I am elgible for VA benefits, but only have 10 years left until they expire.

I took the "new" gre several months ago and did pretty well. I used a groupon and got a subscript on to benchprep.com I will say that it was worthless for teaching but it was great for talking timed scored tests. I think that was probably the most helpful. Advice would be get a book and take a ton of sample tests. I took it twice and did amazing on the writing once and terrible on the rest and the second time amazing on the rest and terrible on the writing. But you might want to take the gmat considering your end goals. Regardless, GOOD LUCK!
