Hi all, like the title says, unfortunately I bombed the the GRE, 152 verbal, 149 quant.
I really thought I'd be fine since I aced my calculus courses in my undergraduate and only prepared 2 weeks. But unfortunately i felt this tested more of my test taking skills since I'm not great at standardized tests. And I did work with a tutor to improve on timed test taking, but I feel like it takes more time to practice out the skills learned to actually develop them.
I have a solid GPA, 3.7 and hold a degree in Computer Science. I have interned at top companies, and currently work for a forbes top 50 company as a software engineer and have research experience/1 publication at highly tanked conference. I've only been out of school since this past May.
I'm applying for a masters in computer science program and 3 applications are for joint programs, masters/PhD track. I have deadlines coming up, have I completely hurt my chances of getting into top tier schools? This is really unfortunate considering I did everything else right except improve on my standardized testing skills. Its not like I couldn't solve the problems, I ran out of time on the quant sections and had to guess on questions I know I could've solves if given a little more time.
Thank you for your help!
