Gre Math Subject for UWashington


Recommended Posts

Hi, 


So I just figured that Uwashington does not take GRE general scores (apparently on their admission requirement there is no GRE general score, also there is no score page to submit in the online application link). So, the only standardized score you can submit is the GRE Math Subject which they say is optional. I currently have a 760 on math GRE so I'm not sure if I should submit or not. Anybody has any ideas?

If anyone wants to see my profile please check my last post. I posted a couple days ago and it was ignored so hopefully someone can take a look at my profile and leave some feedback. Thanks ahead.

I have the same score. I've been told by some people on this website to not submit this score if it's optional or even strongly recommended; however, a couple of people have told me that I can go ahead and submit it as this score is in the 70-75% which will not significantly aid one's application for top schools but will not necessarily hurt it as well. Apparently, the consensus on this website seems to be that you should submit your score to schools when it's around 75-80% or above. The difference between this score and a 71% is taken into account by 2-3 questions,so I'm not sure how the admissions committees would view a 71% vs a 78%, and you could have gotten the latter by getting 3 more problems correct.

Yeah I got the same vibes from the forum and other applications also. Kinda regret not preparing for the Math GRE some more since I spent so much time on a couple of questions and completely forgot to look at the rest of them. It seems like Washington puts its as optional but they might be relying on the Math GRE more than other schools that also recommended it (since there is no general GRE involves in the application process). I think I will just submit my score to them to see what happens. Anyway, thank you for the response!

Yeah, same here. I missed at an easy 78-80%. Still remember 4 problems that I should have had correct. I prepared a lot for the September exam; didn't prepare much for the October exam, and my score still took a 10% hike. I just couldn't do 'damage control' by getting a hold on incorrect problems that I should have otherwise gotten correct. I think I'll send this score to 2/4 schools on my list that recommend it. Let's see how it goes.
