    I’m 21 and going for a PhD! I don’t think it’s too young.

    @MetaphysicalDrama Thank you, I'm absolutely thrilled about the offer! Re:my horrid GRE scores, I completely agree with you. My research advisor warned me that although I was a strong applicant across other fronts (GPA, recommendations, WS, SoP, courses taken), having a GRE score under 160 might result in my application being completely dismissed from some schools. I am not a strong standardized test taker by any means, and did not do as well as I wanted but instead decided to invest a ton of time and effort into polishing my writing sample and SoP. I agree that the GRE is absolute bull and am glad that having poor scores did not prevent me from getting in this cycle. So for other applicants/prospective applicants who are worried about GRE scores, there is still hope yet considering my low scores!

    I'm unfortunately unable to attend the scheduled visit dates for UW as I have a previously planned trip during that time. Are schools accommodating with visiting during times other than the scheduled days due to conflict / do you think they will be flexible with the travel grant if I fly out on a different day? Any advice or intel in this arena is much appreciated!

    I had absolutely abysmal GRE scores - skipped through Quant section (literally scored in 1st percentile) and 158V but still was accepted to a PhD program with full funding! I think it definitely varies based on program, though.
