1. My GRE score is not great. Can anyone give me an idea of what GRE's have been accepted?

    Don't fret the GRE too much. I got in w/ 450 verbal 610 math 4.5 writing. A friend of mine scored 400/400 and made the alt list, but she was called up recently, so....800/1060.....doesn't matter now!!! The school you are applying too is really important. I have heard of programs that won't consider less than a 1000 or 1100 (esp texas) So check around and call the directors to see what their standards are. By the way, I am going to Westminster in SLC.

    Most schools require at least a combined 1000 and some require certain scores on the analytic part as well. I've seen some schools same at least 4, or even 4.5. If you didnt get 1000 I would definetly retake it.

    I've been accepted to Northeastern University in Boston with a 1030 on the math and verbal and a 5.5 on the written. My GPA was a 3.54

    Generally >1000 on the verbal and quantitative combined. 4.0 or > on essay.

    I take GRE's in a week and have no clue what to expect...I've reviewed vocab/math etc...but not hardcore studying. If I don't know it now, then I guess I'll never know it...they say if you're getting 30% of the ?s right, then you're doing better than 80% of the people who take it....we'll see. any advice?

    Think I had around a 1300 - something like that. From what I understand it only really matters if it's low OR your GPA is low and a good GRE can impress. Anything over 1100 should be good.

    <1000 here.. absolutely no bearing on my part... i made up for it with other stuff during the interview. they wanted to know if i would have trouble writing during the research component and i assured them it would not be a problem. besides, the boards are not like the GREs, so not even a predictor in my book...

    On another post, you stated it was 770......what gives?

    If you want to improve your score, you should probably take a GRE prep course, and try again!
