GRE Confusion

  1. I am confused about the way the graduate programs evaluate GRE scores. I will start nursing school in May, which will take 15 months since I already have another degree. I have already taken the GRE, but am not sure how my score will compare. Do graduate programs (CRNA) look at all three sections, or just the verbal and quantitative? I read on another thread that the minimum score for most programs is 1500, so is that for all three sections combined, or just the verbal and math? I would appreciate any knowledge on this. I am new to this site!

    Usually they look at the verbal and quantitative, most require a minimum of 500 in both of those sections...So >1000 on verbal and quantitative. A few look at all of the scores requiring a minimun of say 1500. The schools that you are interested in going to will tell you what their gre requirements are.

    2ndChance, are you going to UMSL or SLU? I looked into both of their programs, but the part-time route works better for me, so I'm going elsewhere. If I had the time, though, I would have done it the accelerated way. Good luck to you.

    On the part time idea,

    Don't ever be afraid to ask a program if they offer one. I know of at least one program where the part time option is an unadvertised option. (Ahem!)

    So go for the school you want, all they can do is say no.
