  1. There seem to be a lot of threads asking the same thing popping up lately and I figured it might make sense to make an overall guide thread and then those who feel their answers still haven’t been adequately answered can post below for an idea of what their chances are. Here is a brief rundown of factors affecting your likelihood of getting into top-tier and well respected programs. If you fall below par in any one of these factors you can bump it up by being stellar in one of the others. I'll add to this if others point out other things I've left out. School requirements: Your first s
  2. Hi, I graduated from college last year. My majors are economics and health science. My overall GPA is 2.8. I do not know if I have any chances to go to graduates school. I took a GRE test in Sep this year but I only got 299 in verbal and quantitative parts, and 3 in analytical writing. People around me most get at least a 3.0 GPA for applying for graduate school in the United States. Yes, I was an international student and moved back to my home country after I graduated. I have some friends who have the same GPA as me, but they decided to apply for graduate school in the U.K. or Australia. How
  3. Hello! I have taken the GRE last month and got V:164, Q:161 and AWA: 4.5. I am planning to apply to the top 5-10 Political Science programs in the U.S. (comparative). My GPA is around 3.90, and my undergrad school is among T3 in Canada. I have 3-5 reliable references (all received their Ph.D. from T5 in the U.S.) and a relatively original and quantitative writing sample, though not a publishable one. Do you think, given the current cycle's conditions, I should submit these GRE scores to the schools that have made it optional? Or do you think I should re-take the test be
  4. I am applying to SAIS MAIR, Georgetown MSFS, Fletcher MALD. Just took the GRE: 162 verbal, 148 quant. GPA: 3.3 6 years of experience: 1 at international global health company 5 in international education. Should I submit my GRE score? What are my chances?
  5. I am applied to UIUC, UMich, UColorado and Rice (best ranked among the universities I applied to) for Condensed Matter Theory (for a Ph.D in Physics). My GRE score is Q163, V163. I am an international student with a 3.91 WES evaluated undergrad GP. I don't have publications but a decent research experience. I recently found out that these schools were much competitive than I had projected, my chances have begun to look dim especially because of my poor Quant score. Do I have a decent shot?
  6. Prompt: Discussing controversial topics with those with contrasting views is not useful because very few people change their mind when questioned about their core beliefs. Write a response to the prompt in which you discuss whether or not you agree or disagree. Be certain to fully develop your position and carefully consider ways in which your position could be challenged. My response: Controversies are inevitably a part of our lives. So more often than not, people tend to have atleast some sort of a basic opinion on things; from politics, to economic policies, to the invitees
  7. I'd appreciate any input on my quandary. UT Houston School of Public Health has made the GRE optional this season, and I'm not sure if my scores will help or hurt my application for the PhD in Behavioral Sciences program. Here's a bit about me: Undergrad GPA: 3.3 Grad GPA: 4.0 No pubs yet but I have experience working on multiple research projects, including a couple that I hope to publish in the next year. I'm also a foster parent who is interested in maternal and child health. GRE verbal: 92nd percentile, quant: 51st percentile, writing: 4.5 (80th percentile). On the
  8. I appeared for test from home edition of GRE and scored 319(Q:165, V:154)+3.5. I am a non native English speaker from India from a very reputed Institute. I have a really mediocre (C)GPA like around 3.2~3.3. Also, I am a non CS student wishing to pursue computational sciences especially machine learning abroad. I have research as well as corporate experience in the ML field. Though, I do not have any publications. I have 5 LoRs(teachers and former employers). TBH, the only thing that makes me insecure about applying is my mediocrity. I mean I was literally the 50th student in a class of 1
  9. Hello Everyone, I took my GRE couple of days ago and got 326 (168 on Math and 158 on Verbal). I am applying for phd in statistics and I believe that my score on math section is fine for the most programs, but the verbal score is probably less than their average for good schools. Since I am an international student, I think I would not be judged too harshly on that verbal score but I just wanted to ask here. Should I submit these scores to schools like U Michigan, UT Austin who have made GRE optional?
  10. Does anyone know of any Speech Language Pathology graduate programs that are waiving the GRE for 2020-2021 due to the coronavirus? Thanks!
  11. Hi! I am wondering your thoughts/opinions on how likely I am to get into my schools and if I should retake my GRE. Undergrad: George Washington University GPA: 3.81 Experience and leadership: assistant teacher at pre school, gymnastics coach, summer camp counselor, NSSLHA member and leadership role, division 1 gymnastics team at GW, NCAA all-American scholastic team GRE: 149 V 147 Q, writing i did not get back yet I would like to think my letters are strong as well as my personal statements. I know being a student-athlete looks great and my GPA. I do have a reco
  12. The following appeared as a letter to the editor from a Central Plaza store owner. "Over the past two years, the number of shoppers in Central Plaza has been steadily decreasing while the popularity of skateboarding has increased dramatically. Many Central Plaza store owners believe that the decrease in their business is due to the number of skateboard users in the plaza. There has also been a dramatic increase in the amount of litter and vandalism throughout the plaza. Thus, we recommend that the city prohibit skateboarding in Central Plaza. If skateboarding is prohibited here, we predic
  13. Hi everyone, wanna share with you a GRE vocab video I just made. It covers 5 words, including: acid (a.) sharp-tasting or sour prodigal (a.) spending money or using resources recklessly and wastefully exacerbate (v.) make worse coalesce (v.) come together to form one mass or one thing acuity (n.) sharpness of thought, vision I hope it helps! https://youtu.be/249Zi-fcuvQ
  14. 1. GRE: I got 154V, 165Q, and probably 3.5W 2. I finished enough upper division math classes to graduate and my overall GPA is 3.92. Here's a close list of the classes: Math: Topology (4.0); Linear Optimization (4.0); Linear Analysis (3.8); Matrix Algebra with Applications (3.4); Numerical Analysis I (4.0); Foundations of Modern Math (4.0); Discrete Mathematical Modeling (3.7); Calculus I (3.8); Calculus III (3.6); Multivariable Calculus (4.0); Introduction to Differential Equations (4.0); Abstract Algebra I (4.0); Real Analysis I (4.0) 3. I also have done a math research that g
  15. Question To understand the most important characteristics of a society, one must study its major cities. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position. Response Societies are often measured by the development of its major cities. But on second thought it seems that
  16. Before I started looking for PhD in English programs to apply to, I was looking to see which ones required GRE scores to apply. I found this helpful spreadsheet that lists the schools that don't require any GRE scores. I thought I'd share it with you all, since I know it'll be helpful! Good luck with applying!
  17. Task: Although sound moral judgment is an important characteristic of an effective leader, it is not as important as a leader’s ability to maintain the respect of his or her peers. Instructions: Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position. Essay: A leader must maintain a variety of important chara
  18. The best way for a society to prepare its young people for leadership in government, industry, or other fields is by instilling in them a sense of cooperation, not competition. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the claim. In developing and supporting your position, be sure to address the most compelling reasons and/or examples that could be used to challenge your position. Like the famous saying goes, 'If you want to go fast, walk alone, if you want to go far, walk together'. I suppose the greatest movements of our time
  19. Conformity almost always leads to a deadening of individual creativity and energy. Does conformity prey upon the creativity and energy of an individual? I beg to differ with the speaker’s claim because it overstates the role of individuality and unfairly undermines the benefits of conformity. History certainly holds a testimony that many major contribution to the society stem from individuality but, it also holds equivalent amount of examples when conformity has led to many ground breaking discoveries especially today. I concede to that fact that many inventions and innovations in t
  20. Hi!! I am having the absolute worst time re scheduling my GRE exam so I can take it from home. I was supposed to take my exam in June at a testing center near me, but that testing center closed. Proctor U is impossible to schedule with. Every single time I click any date in the near future, it tells me "It appears the time you selected has been blacked out or the exam time would extend into a blackout". None of the proctor U customer service people have helped me. ETS had my friend on hold for 2+ hours and then dropped the call. This same friend was supposed to take her GRE last weekend. She m
  21. Issue Topic : The best way for a society to prepare its young people for leadership in government, industry, or other fields is by instilling in them a sense of cooperation, not competition.The young people can be taught about leadership in government, industries and other fields through cooperation rather than competition. Young minds are naive and malleable. Hence, they can be taught easily about the needs to become a successful leader.To begin with, instilling the sense of cooperation, the act of doing things together in peace and harmony can be an effective method to build a leader among y
  22. Hi, first time poster, I was just wondering if anyone is taking the literature subject test this year... I know not a lot of schools ask for it these days but there are a few programs I want to apply to that require it. If you are, would you be taking it in September, or in October? (I'm worried that the October scores wouldn't reach my schools because it seems like the scores come out late november and the deadlines are in the first week of December)
  23. Hi! I'm planning on applying to clinical psychology phd programs in the fall, and I was wondering if anyone has heard if PhD programs have waived the GRE due to COVID (like many schools are waiving the SAT/ACT for undergrad)? I emailed ETS about their testing centers being open but I haven't heard back... To be completely honest I don't even feel comfortable going into a testing center with the current covid pandemic 😕
  24. Is it true that a low GRE Score automatically rejects applications from univ?
  25. Hello! I am an aspiring forensic psychology grad student, just prepping for the GRE. I have written one practice of each of the Issue and Argument essay, and I am hoping a kind soul will be willing to give them a quick read-through and give me some pointers! They are not long, less than one page each. Additionally, if anyone has any expertise in the GRE, or forensic psychology in general I would love to connect with you! Thanks! essay practice may 11.docx
