paradigm Posted July 7, 2011 Share Posted July 7, 2011 (edited) Hi everyone, I need some advice. I took the GRE for the first time in late May and had what I consider a strong outing: 760 Q, 590 V, 5 AWA. But I'm a perfectionist and believed that with a little more work I could raise my verbal score by at least 50 points and get a 6 on the AWA. Should I retake the exam, or is the risk of scoring lower too great to justify retaking it? For the record, I'm planning on applying to a few MA in Economics programs and a few MPP programs. I also might try to use the GRE in lieu of the GMAT a few years down the road for b-school applications. For some reason, I'd been convinced that if I scored a 6 on the AWA and raised my verbal score ~ 50 points, I'd improve my profile considerably, so that's why I'm agonizing over taking it again or not.
