Hello- I haven't gotten much help from the few admissions committees I've reached out about this, so I figured I'd ask here- I took the GRE three times, received a poor/mediocre score on the first round (157 V, 155 Q, 5.0 W), a better but still meh score the second time (158 V, 157 Q, 5.5 W), and then a better verbal but significantly worse quant score the third time (160 V, 152 Q, 5.5 W). I was thinking of taking the test a fourth time, but then relocated to East Africa for work, and it's difficult to find a place to sit for the exam here. I'm applying to a range of top public policy and international development programs, and I'm wondering if it would be to my detriment to submit all three scores, or if I should only submit the two most recent scores. On the one hand, I thought it might be worth showing that I tried the darn thing three times, but then again, I'm not so sure. Would this be something to address in any additional essays/supplemental materials, too? Other things about me: I have a 3.7 undergrad GPA and have taken additional coursework to supplement my poor quant background (I work for an accounting and consulting firm but didn't take much econ, etc. in college). I graduated from college in 2010 and have worked for a management consulting firm in public sector/development projects since. Anyway- I so appreciate any thoughts you might have about my predicament. Thank you in advance for your time!
