SarahSocPsy Posted December 5, 2010 Share Posted December 5, 2010 Hello, I'm applying to social psych phd programs right now, and I'm wondering if a 680 quantitative score will hurt my chances of admissions into top programs. I know it's below the average for a lot of the programs I am applying to. I got a 650 on verbal and a 5 on AW (6 first time I took it), which seems to be okay. However, both times I took the test I got a 680 on the quant section because I got nervous and couldn't solve the questions quick enough and ended up guessing on too many. I took precalculus, finite mathematics, and trigonometry in college as well as three statistics courses, and I earned A's in all of them. The statistics courses were all about the same level, but because I have three majors I had to take one in each college and I couldn't petition out. I would hope a 4.0 in 20 credits of math related classes would count for something. I have a cumulative 3.89 GPA (3.97 psych GPA) with a rather rigorous course schedule, considering all my majors. Do you think the math score will hurt my chances, or am I just stressing unnecessarily? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
