That Rusty Monkey Posted September 17, 2010 Share Posted September 17, 2010 I took the GRE today and scored a 650V 590Q and a 5.5 AWA. Other than that, here is what I have and what I am going for: I graduated from the University of Washington with a 3.51 GPA. I have been doing research with professors/the city of Seattle for 2 years, and I have worked on 6 different project. I have worked for my old college for a year and a half in student leadership. I also have done a lot of event planning and running/working for the colleges I have been at. I am trying to go for a PhD in political science or government. Based on these scores, what kinds of schools am I looking at getting into? Should I consider retaking the GREs or are these scores fine? I studied for approximately 3 weeks. I improved a ton on my quantitative score, from a 450 to a 590 (at the start, I didn't know how to do basic multiplication/division, due to going to a public school in a ghetto-y area of Memphis). However, my verbal score stayed the same/dropped slightly. I memorized every word on the "Hit Parade" in the Princeton Review book, and memorized every word in the Kaplan book, and worked with people on how to do the verbal section.... My scores on my practice tests generally floated around 650, 670 and 690 (which was my first practice test). Finally, I'm incredibly poor... As in my entire family of three people has about 160 dollars to our name currently, and I am looking to sell what I have online to pay for application fees/sending out GRE scores. Is it worth it to save/take it again? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
