purpleperson Posted October 26, 2013 Share Posted October 26, 2013 Northwestern is a great fit for me, based on my interests. A professor even told me to check it out. However, my Verbal GRE is 158, and their site says that their viable candidates have 166 Verbal, typically. People on this board have said things to the effect of "there's wiggle room" (at NW w/ regard to GRE scores), but I'm thinking that wiggle room means 162 could cut it, but 158 maybe not. And I do know the motto that "anything could happen" and "you never know." But I want to balance that with a degree of practicality. I just want to hear whether you'd risk it or not. I don't *need* to apply to Northwestern. In fact, I have no particular desire to go there other than that it's in Chicago and that, being that I was told it's a good fit for me (and it is), and going with the idea that fit matters a lot, it seems like I *should* apply there. But...so...what would you do? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
