Avatar123 Posted September 8, 2013 Share Posted September 8, 2013 Hi, I skimmed through the list of answers here http://testprep.about.com/u/ua/thegretest/GRE_Score_User_Answers.04.htm. However, I couldn't find any that matches my circumstances exactly. I would really appreciate if people can let me know my current chance and specifically whether I should retake the GRE or not. Aim: Electrical engineering departments at Berkeley, Stanford, MIT (which doesn't require it), Carnegie Mellon, CIT, UCLA, Princeton etc. GPA: 3.9/4 GRE (taken today): 169 Quantitative 157 Verbal AW- expecting to be at least a 4.0, maybe a 4/4.5 Research: a couple, no publication yet, but maybe later in an undergraduate journal. Extracurricular: excellent 1 superb recommendation (from research adviser), 1 great recommendation, and 1 good recommendation Statement of purpose should be good. Should I consider retaking the GRE next month? I feel like there is a good chance I can raise my verbal score by 5 points, and maybe AW up to 4.5/5 (depending on the topic). Thanks in advance!
