cdjdaniels Posted August 1, 2012 Share Posted August 1, 2012 I got my GRE scores yesterday. I am currently applying to MA programs in English lit, and I know my scores are sufficient for the programs to which I am applying. My question is whether those same scores will still be sufficient when it comes time to apply to a PhD, if I choose to do so. I did very well on the Verbal and the Analytical Writing, 167 and 5.5 respectively. My problem is the Quantitative. I didn't do badly, I got a 158, which is about the 75th percentile. But PhDs are so competitve, and if I do decide to pursue one I will want to go to a good school. Obviously the verbal and writing are far more important for an English PhD than the quantitative, but for a top tier PhD program do you think the lower Quant. score would mean the difference between acceptance and not? I know that the GREs are just one part of the application, etc. etc., but I am asking because I am hoping not to have to retake the test. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
