  4. Hello everyone, I am kinda freaking out right now because idk if I will get accepted into an SLP Master's Program. I know that it's a very competitive field and I don't have the best statuses. Here are my stats, Overall GPA 3.3, Major GPA 3.5, GRE: 139V 142Q 3.0AW (I know its bad Dx). I am planning to retake the GRE one more time before August and hoping to get in the 150's (I've been using Magoosh and it's been helping. The practice tests say I would probably score 145-150, but I still have a month til my test). I currently live in Nevada and there's only one Master's program here. I am currently looking at these schools: Old Dominion, Hampton University, distance programs such as Nova and NYU Steinfield, Louisiana State University, Arizona State University, etc. If you applied or was accepted can you tell me how you like it and if I have a chance of being accepted. Thank you everyone~
  5. Dear community, I am an international applicant for Fall 2019 Admission to various Cell Biology programs in the northeast of the US. I've recently (April) taken the GRE Biology subject test and got 91th percentile. Now, I think it is a quite good result but would you suggest to send it also to universities where it is only suggested or is it still to low to matter in the final decision? GPA is 3.9-4.0 depending on the conversion system I use. Thank you very much for your help. Chiara
  6. So, I thought I'd share my situation as a lesson for any future applicants. Last week, I received an email from one of my schools to let me know they were missing my 3rd LoR and my GRE scores. This was a courtesy email, since the app isn't officially due until January, but it caused a bit of panic in me. Why? Because I sent all my GRE scores on October 4th and it's now December. Ultimately, this took a lot of back and forth with both the school and ETS until ETS told me they needed the school to contact them before they would resend the scores. I have yet to hear back from the school since sharing this with them. This also got me worried about my other programs. I sent the scores so early because one of my apps had an internal early deadline to be considered for early funding. I checked all of my apps and two others did not list GRE scores at all. This means there is no way for me to know, from my application status page, if they were received. So, I contacted one of the schools. They let me know this morning that the scores were not received. I let them know what ETS said and emphasized that the scores were sent 2 months ago. They promised to double-check and then follow up with ETS. So, I contacted the final school and am still waiting to hear if the scores are missing there. And yes, that school is the one that had the early deadline, so if they're missing, there's (likely) no chance for that additional funding. In short, always double-check and follow up if you don't see your scores posted to your app within a week or two (or haven't received a confirmation from the school). If the school can't find them, ETS will not send them again until the school contacts them directly. Also in short, I'm very stressed right now. I'll try and let you all know how this works out.
  7. Hi! I’m new to the forum and am looking for some advice. Which scores do you think are better to send to Masters’ Programs in IR please? I’m leaning towards sending both sets but wondering what you guys would recommend! V: 165 (96th) Q: 156 (62nd) AW: 5.5 (98th) V: 163 (93rd) Q: 165 (89th) AW: not released yet I would really appreciate any advice/guidance! Thank you!
  8. Hey all, Thank you in advance for the advice. I am asking a question for my girlfriend. She is applying to MPH programs with a low GPA 3.2 and ok gre scores. 152Q and 159V. She has 5 years of international work experience peace corps, ESL teaching, research in health. What are her chances of getting into Harvard, Columbia, Hopkins, or Yale for their MPH programs??? Also, I am having trouble finding a thread for this year's MPH applicant statistics so feel free to post your stats in the comments: GPA 3.2 GRE: 152Q 159V other relevant factors:
  9. I have already taken the General GRE and am taking the Physics subject test in a week. I am struggling to figure out how the billing system of sending scores work before I decide to pick my four schools that I can send my scores to for free. ETS' website says that it is $27 per score recipient. This, to me, implies that if I send both my general and subject scores at the same time (assuming it's possible for me to do so), I can save some money. That being said, is that how it actually works? Or must I send my scores separately and pay $27 to send my general score and then $27 to send my subject test score? I am asking so I can optimize who I send my scores to for my subject test. Would it be better for me to pick the same schools I did for the General GRE (I would love to do this; I'm just worried it may not be the smartest financial option)?
  10. Hi there! Nervous physical anthropology phd applicant for the 2018 cycle here. A little bit of background from me: - BA from U Mich in Evolutionary Anthropology 2012 - MA from Texas Tech in Physical Anthropology 2015 I tried to see what I could get in the private sector, and worked as an Archaeological Tech, and then as a Medicolegal Death Invesigator/Autopsy Tech for a year and a half. However, I was diagnosed with a pituitary adenoma last month, and had to leave my job. Throughout all of this, I knew deep down that I wanted to continue my masters thesis research at the phd level. It’s an interesting topic that has little specific literature. Health wise, I’m crappy, but had to take the gre today so I can apply this season before my surgery. For having severe active hyperthyroidism and the tumor, I thought I did pretty well. However, after poking around here, I am not so sure anymore. long story short, I would love to know gre scores for those of you who were successful phd applicants, and where you were accepted! I know it’s largely due to fit, but gre scores have some role, correct? For the record, I received a 161 in VR and 160 in Quant. Thanks a bunch in advance!

  12. I am looking to apply to three or four graduate programs in International Relations for Fall of 2018 this winter. I took the GRE for the first time this June, and got scores of V:158, Q:140 and writing: 4. My verbal score is average or above average for the programs I hope to apply to, and my analytical writing score is more or less average. My Quant score however is of worry to me as the average score for those admitted to the programs I want into is around 150-155. I plan on taking the GRE again in Dec/Jan, just before most application deadlines, and plan to do a lot of studying to pick my scores up. Math has never been my strong suit, and I am worried I won't be able to pick it up more than a couple points, if at all. Assuming I'm not able to dramatically improve my quant scores, would such a low score keep me out of programs on its own? Just for some background: I don't have much experience in the field, other than a few courses (I'm a sociology major), and writing articles for a professor's IR blog. I have over ten years work experience in Education. I can get somewhere between decent-great LORS.
  13. Hey guys, I have a strong interest in the academia and since I received my BS in Chemistry I've been thinking about the next steps and trying not to screw up my best chances. Let me explain my background before moving to the actual question: I've graduated in Brazil from a medium-sized university that has a very small chemistry department, so I didn't have that vast experience in research as an undergraduate at a big institution. I have actually been involved in research but I couldn't make any publications out of it (only presentations in small symposia and conferences). I studied in the US for one year as a scholarship winner but it was more coursework than research. My GRE scores are Quantitative-154, Verbal-160, AW-3.0) and I earned a 113/120 in the TOEFL score. My undergraduate GPA is not that high but I have good recommendation letters, although they are from faculty members at my university in Brazil. So basically I have two options: Apply to a PhD program in a small chemistry department, in which chances of being approved are real (I got accepted to such a program last year but I had to refuse). Apply to a master's program in a medium-sized university that offers a terminal M.S. degree, since departments with Ph.D. programs almost never accept students for a M.S.) so I can strengthen my CV and then apply to a Ph.D. at a top University The reason for all this doubtfulness is that the Ph.D. is the highest degree in academia and obtaining one from an unknown university or program might kill your chances of getting hired at a good company or institution. What I still don't know is that if an MS degree would be a plus when applying to a doctoral program later (I would try my best to come out of the master's with publications and conferences of course). Is my reasoning correct? Should I consider retaking the GRE? Is it likely that I would be accepted into a decent PhD program with that score?
  14. Hello! I'm looking to see what ideal GRE scores are for MSW applicants? I'm planning on applying to UNC- Chapel Hill, UGA, UT-Austin, UMichigan, UI-Chicago, and FSU as of now. I know ideal score may vary from school to school but just trying to get and some insight to what scores admissions are looking for, I would really appreciate it! Also, if anyone has any other school suggestions that offer Dual Degree Programs with an MSW and an MPH or MPA please let me know as well!
  15. I'm applying for PhD programs in physics this fall. I've already taken the GRE general in the past with V159, Q 162. Do you think I should retake the GRE for a higher score? I know that physics programs don't give too much weight on the general GRE scores, but wanted your opinions.. Thanks!
  16. I recently took the GRE, I got a score of 326, Quant: 164 and Verbal: 162, I am happy with the verbal part (specially because I am not a native speaker so I didn´t expect much), but the quant part concerns me a little. I want to apply for a PhD in Chemistry. How likely is it to get accepted in a top university with scores? My GPA is somewhere between 3.7-3.8, (I´m not sure how to properly do the conversion haha). Well, I hope someone can help me get an idea oh what to expect. Thanks
  17. At what point should the GRE be retaken? If there is time, and you think you can improve your score, should you retake it? Also, if you have beaten the average of previously accepted students, but think you could do better, retake?
  18. Hey! I was wondering if anyone here has been accepted into UMSL's Behavioral Neuroscience program and what your GRE scores were? It seems the average is not posted on the website like it is for clinical and I/O.
  19. I'm graduating from UCF in Spring 2017, and looking for Summer/Fall 2017 applications for graduate schools. I've already started the processes and right now am planning to apply for 4 schools- UT-Dallas, UCF, UF, USF (it's so expensive to apply!) My scores/criteria stands as: GPA- 4.0 in last 60 credit hours (working to keep that up until I graduate), 3.53 for all my undergrad credits GRE- 154 verbal, 152 quant, 5 analytical writing I'm part of NSSLHA I have a part-time job teaching color guard and have been actively involved in traveling with drum corps during the summer, so that shows dedication. I have another part-time job at the Rec & Wellness Center on campus as a fitness attendant and I'm part of the Risk Management program through the gym which helps with safety and prevention awareness I volunteer at a daycare which promotes bilingual teaching at a young age in order to expose children to two language (english and spanish in my case) at the same time, and I may become part-time there as a VPK teacher. So although I've not had any direct work in the field or as an SLPA or doing research (not really my top interest), I think I have several things to make me stand out along with competitive scores. I have LoR from a professor who attended and loved my #1 choice for grad school (UT-Dallas) and a few other letters from other professors I enjoyed learning from. Any comments or anything would help, I'm trying to sort out my chances and stuff
  20. I have a Q168 and V156 along with 4.5 AWA. I am applying for MS in CS in some top Ivy League Universities. Are these good enough? If not, given that it is almost time to start applying for Fall 2017, is it a wise thing to write again?
  21. Hello, I'm pretty new to this forum, I was hoping for some input/help I'm planning on applying to grad school for speech language pathology for the Fall 2017 year, and I'm just freaking out about applications and GRE scores. I have a 3.731 GPA but my GRE scores are god awful. It's pretty embarrassing to even share my scores (mostly due to the math). To be fair, I did not study as hard as I should have for the GRE. I'm planning on taking it a second time around and I've been putting in major hours (Memorized 500 vocab words + Magoosh vocab). However, it seems my Achilles heel is the quantitative reasoning. I know people say they are "bad at math", but I just do not understand math.. I am able to understand if I walk through the solution, but it seems like when the problem is rearranged in any way or given to me different I just blank out. I've always been this way and have been placed in remedial math when I was younger. It's just the hardest subject for me, and I hate that I have a hard time understanding it. I wish I could afford an online GRE course, but it just is not an option for me. I have been practicing diligently with the Manhattan Prep + Vocabulary I mentioned before, and also The Princeton Review: Cracking the GRE. Having limited understanding of math (I could probably do the simple problems..), does anyone have any suggestions or think it's worth it to keep trying with the math? Or should I not worry about the math and just focus mainly on my strong subjects (writing, reading, text completion)? Any answers would be appreciated!
  22. Hi! I took the GRE on the 5/06/2016. I know the ETS site says 10-15 days, but is there any way I can see/hear my scores before then?
  23. I'm out of options with my PHD applications. I applied to 15 schools and had what I thought was a stellar PhD application package, 20 years military experience, solid SOP, great LOR's, transcripts are excellent to outstanding from three separate and accredited graduate programs and getting rejected left and right. I had Univ of MN tell me flat out that GRE scores were the problem. (157 V/ 154 Q) I've taken it twice this past summer, used Magoosh and the 5lb Manhattan Test prep and cannot get my scores to elevate. At this point, I'm guessing that there are five culprits: 1) GRE scores, 2) inability of the schools to translate military experience to academia 3) lack of research fit with the research department (I'm going for Business Strategy) and 4) lack of a university/professorial advocate at the school. Anyone have any suggestions? I'm out of options at this point.
  24. Hello all, let me get right to it! I changed my major from Biology to Sociology/Anthropology for my Bacherlor's Degree but I would like my Master's in Plant Biology/ Cancer Biology/ Botany and I have those listed depending on which university I accept. Since I did not get the Life Science background with my change of major I'm currently looking into the GRE Biology. My Question: What is good GRE Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology score? In case you're wondering the schools of choice so far: University of FL, Florida State, University of GA Thank you in advance! - SillSil
