I am worried about my application, due to my low GRE scores. I have retaken the test 3 times with little increases, and don't think I have the mental capacity to try again before fall 2018 apps are due.
My current profile is:
Undergrad GPA 3.86, honors from University of Washington, Bothell Electrical Engineering
GRE take 2 152 V, 155 Q, 4 AWA
take 3 148 V, 157 Q, 4 AWA
Research: 2 recent conference proceedings, a journal publication (2nd author) and research scholarship during undergrad.
Good LOR's from undergrad research adivser, current research adviser, and professor I had good standing with.
The school I am really concerned with getting into is University of Washington, Seattle EE program for MEMS.
They remark on there website that "competitive applicants usually have a quant score of 160 minimum."
Another stretch school would be University of Michigan, but with my current profile I feel I have no chance of that.
The advice I am looking for is my abysmal GRE scores going to keep me out of UW?
