Take GRE again?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am planning to apply for MS in CS for fall 2014

GRE scores are 153 (Verbal) 163 (Quant) 
Toefl: Yet to take
B.Tech in Computer Science Engineering - Rajasthan Technical University
Percentage: 80

I am confused about selecting universities. My GRE score isn't great but people are saying that I can get decent schools. I dont know where I stand and where i should apply. If I gotta take GRE again, I should decide asap cuz the deadlines are approaching. Following is the list of schools I want ot apply to.

University of Southern California (USC)
University of Zurich
University of Minessota
Ohio State University
Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) 
University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill 
North Carolina State University (NCSU) 

I guess most of these are ambitious. Please help me categorize them. Also, suggestions on retaking the GRE are welcome.

We have the exact same GRE scores for quant and verbal. 


Your Quant is either around the average or above the average for students admitted into most/all the schools you're applying to. And noone cares about verbal unless its too low. 


So no. Dont retake the GRE. Waste of time and money.
