starrystarrynight Posted September 11, 2012 Share Posted September 11, 2012 Hi, I've checked my GRE score online today and I'm really confused whether I should re-take the exam or not. V158 Q169 AWA 4.0 (V570 Q800 for old GRE) I'm planning to apply for Ph.D programs in socio-cultural anthropology this fall, which I guess hardly emphasize Quant scores at all. I'm even wishing that some miracle would occur and my Verbal and Quant score would exchange themselves.... I know it is below average among applicants of the top universities. My percentiles seem horrible, especially for AWA which doesn't even make up to 50%. It's more disappointing because I was expecting to get at least 160 for the verbal section. Then again, I'm an international applicant and I thought the committee would put some consideration to that... What would you recommend? Should I re-take the exam or should I just get over it and focus on my SOPs and writing samples instead? Furthermore, has anyone seen statistics or information regarding international applicants? My friends and I are suffering from lack of information. Replies would really help a lot! Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
