AHicken Posted May 8, 2013 Share Posted May 8, 2013 Greetings, I am currently considering apply for a PhD program at several universities and am feeling some anxiety towards the GRE – I’m hoping I can get some feedback from the community regarding this circumstance. Currently I am working on my master’s degree in Organizational Leadership at Regis University with an anticipated graduation date of next April (I’m about 60% done with my degree). My GPA is holding steady at a solid 4.0 on a 4.0 scale. I also hold a professional certification in my field (PHR) and have 7 years’ experience in HR (the programs I’m applying to are HR-centric/focused). Here comes the anxiety; despite my GPA, certification, work experience I’m concerned that a potentially average GRE score will deny my admission. I test very well in the verbal section, though my quant scores are above average but feel they are lack luster. Unfortunately, I don’t have the exact scores from the practice exam I took. What are your thoughts on my anxiety? My circumstances? For the record I’m looking to apply to Cornell, Purdue, U of Minnesota, and U of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Thank you everyone!
