Low GRE for Journalism


Recommended Posts

I get a mediocre score on my GRE. V-144 Q-140.

I am applying to the NYU journalism joint Program with Latin American Studies. Viewing my GRE scores: should I hesitate from applying to NYU?

The school says that the mean score of admitted students is above 160 (84 percentile, and I am 24 percentile).


Nevertheless my low scores, I am a really strong candidate. I have a strong Statement of Purpose, Really good recommendation letters, neat writing sample, GPA3.66, and an extensive resume on which is included that i found an online newspaper, that was worldwide recognized and awarded in international festivals.

Should I apply or not? What are my chances? I do not think I can get a higher score, since i have never been good at standardized tests. NEVER.
