*Beginning with the Summer 2019
admissions cohort, the MHA program

  2. Verbal and Quantitative GRE scores divided by 25, or Verbal and Quantitative GMAT scores divided by 12.5 (max 50 points).  For persons who have taken the revised GRE exam after August 1, 2011, scores are converted to the traditional GRE score scale for formula purposes based on the verbal and quantitative sections as follows:
