GRE scores good enough?

Recommended Posts

V: 168 Q: 164 W: 6.0

I was hoping to be competitive for the Harvard Kennedy School Public Policy PhD, but I would be applying for the economics methodology within that program.

Saw somewhere online that avg. Quant scores for the HKS PP PhD are 162, but not sure how much truth there is to that, especially if I would be applying on the basis of doing more quant heavy stuff within the program.

I had scored around 166 consistently on the practice exams for Quant, and was really hoping for that score, or better. Disappointed with 164, but really, really do not want to pay the $$$ and go through the stress of taking this thing again, unless I really need to. I have taken a lot of math classes (up to real analysis) with A's in all of them, so maybe that could compliment the lower Quant score...

Any suggestions on if I should go through this again and pay the extra money?

Thanks in advance.
