  1. Hey! Even I am having a chem GRE score in that range, I just wanted to know whether you reported this score or took the subject GRE again? Your reply would really help me!!!!!
  2. Even I thought of not reporting this score. But UCI and Cornell require the subject GRE scores for international students. I have already submitted my application for these 2 few days back and only yesterday got my result. How important is subject GRE for the application?

  6. Hi I am in the final year of my master's and I decided to apply for PhD programs in education, but my GRE score is not good. V: 144, Q: 161, AWA: 3.0 Unfortunately, I don't have to time to re-take the exam this year. Should I re-take the exam in Feb and apply for Spring-2016 or give more time for preparation and go for Fall-2017? I also have to take Subject GRE. What to do?...
