Ph.D. Hopeful Posted November 2, 2010 Share Posted November 2, 2010 I just took the GRE and received a 470 V (ugh!) and a 760 Q for a total of 1230. I have not received my analytical writing scores back yet, but I feel I did awesome on those. I am applying to Ph.D. programs in Biomedical Sciences/Neurosciences, and my schools so far include: Stanford, WashU, Duke, UNC, Ohio State, University of Michigan, Vanderbilt, University of Utah, University of Tennessee, Colorado State, etc... Many of the deadlines are December 1st. The dilemma I face is whether to retake the GRE in two weeks (not much more additional studying) to try to raise my scores for my "reach" schools, forget about applying to my "reach" schools, or realize that my scores aren't that bad (which I highly doubt this option is correct). My other statistics include: Biochemistry major/English minor 4.0 GPA Some research (not much pertaining to the Ph.D. programs) Expecting great recommendations from advisor and two course instructors/lab advisors "Unique" story as to why I want to get into neuroscience research, especially multiple sclerosis (diagnosed two years ago) Just wanted to get some opinions on my situation!
