scarletstudent Posted November 18, 2013 Share Posted November 18, 2013 Hello! I am applying to graduate degrees in Elementary Education and Secondary Education for the Fall 2014 semester (so apps are due in a couple of months). I have two sets of GRE scores which amount to the same thing but weigh out differently: From 2009: Qualitative = 570 (translates to about 158, 78%), Quantitative = 670 (translates to about 152, 49%), Writing = 4.5 (78%) From 2013: Qualitative = 154 (62%), Quantitative = 156 (65%), Writing = 5.5 (97%) As you can see, I have average scores that make the minimum requirement for getting admission into a graduate Education program. I was always leaning towards sending my newer scores, but the more I do research the more I see that education schools expect a better verbal score and my 2009 test scores might be better for this. To give you a bit of a background, I went to state school, have an average general GPA but an excellent major GPA, have a stellar resume (worked in academic publishing for a few years), got great recommendations, and wrote a winning personal statement. The schools I'm aiming for are in the Top 50. Any thoughts? Should I just send both tests (which automatically happens if I don't use the new Score Select option)? Do you think that would do any harm? The negative side is that it shows I didn't get any better at test taking, but the positive side is that my writing score improved significantly. Thanks for your time. Any opinions are appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
