tendaysleft Posted July 23, 2011 Share Posted July 23, 2011 HI everyone, I just got back from the GRE and I didn't do quite as well as I had hoped. Should I retake the test? Or am I crazy? I got 690V 640Q, and I'm expecting to be in the 5-6 range in AW. I'm applying to art history MA programs so I expect my poor-ish showing in math won't affect my chances there too much. And I realize my verbal score is pretty good. But I was really hoping to break 700 and really blow the schools I'm applying to out of the water. I have some good recs coming my way and my GPA is 3.62, major GPA probably higher than that. But I was really hoping to get a spectacular verbal score to push my application over the edge. Would you retake, if you were me? I was scoring over 700 in the practice tests, I think the nerves got to me and I started rushing. But is it worth all the effort, not to mention restudying new material for the revised test? Is it kind of ridiculous or kind of justified that I feel a bit disappointed in that score? Any guidance would be really, really appreciated! (And feel free to tell me off if I'm making a bit deal out of nothing! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
