searching4schools Posted May 27, 2008 Share Posted May 27, 2008 Hi all, I would like to know what would you guys do if you were me. That is, I took the GREs for the first time as a senior in college, coming back from studying abroad. I was sick while taking it, but I -stupidly- thought that maybe I was not going to do so badly. Needless to say, I got a very bad score V= 450, Q= 470 or something like that. I've decided to get a job after graduating and to take the test again. I did, and I did better V= 570, Q= 620 Writing = 5.5. However, even though this is an improvement I am still considering taking the exam again, only because judging from my practice exams, I can do much better (especially quant). So, I'm thinking -- should I take the exam for the third time? Would that look bad? I would like to apply to graduate programs in Cognitive Development (Ph.D.). It would probably help you guys to know that my GPA is 3.8 (3.9 in psychology), I have research experience and I've presented my independent work at several conferences where I received good feedback. In addition, I believe I'll get great rec letters. Thanks in advance for all your help and advice! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
