pluropotential Posted August 11, 2019 Share Posted August 11, 2019 Hi y'all, My GRE scores are 169V/157Q/6.0AW Last year I was shut out of all the PhD programmes to which I applied, which were all in the PGR Top 20. How likely do you think it was the quant. score that was holding me back? And/or if I were to apply again, would I be better served refining my writing sample, or re-taking the GRE again? Or just both? In general, do you think you need to have completely stellar GRE scores in all three categories (or at least the big two) to be competitive for top-20 ranked programmes? Top-50? thanks for any advice or support, team as a random aside-- my AOI is meta-philosophy-- does any department welcome this AOI, or is my academic career doomed before it's even begun?
