Penn State Mechanical Engineering PhD program

Recommended Posts

I am applying for the ME PhD program at Penn State starting Spring 2019. I have only contacted one professor from the department. He has encouraged me to apply but has not yet set up an interview. Anyway, I'm planning to apply. 
I have a relatively good resume with a few years of research and teaching experiences, several published works including a textbook, some book chapters, and some journal papers and conference proceedings. I have received my master's degree in the US so the English proficiency exam will be waived for me. My GPA is 3.6. However, I'm afraid if my GRE score is not competitive enough as I've got 168, 150, and 3.5 in quant, verbal and writing respectively. I wanted to ask my friends here who just became admitted in this department for Fall 2019 or even the recent years look at my scores and let me know if it's competitive or not. 

Thanks in advance.

That GRE score is way more than competitive.  I think it will just come down to how the profs like you.  Good luck!
