Low gre score, M.S genetics counselor Program


Recommended Posts

Hi guys. I intended to apply for genetics counselor program in Fall 2015. From what I know its a competitive program. I took the Gre in June and it wasnt good: 302 total ( 149 v, 153 Q) My is  Gpa 3.42. I have experience in non profit organizations ( 1 year volunteer with rape crisis hotline, 1 year with brain injury survivors, 1 internship with local non profit )  I also done some shadowing with local genetics counselor. I wonder if my exp would compensate for my  low Gre,and is my chance of getting into the program in general ? below is the list of school that im applying to .


University of Alabama at Birmingham


University of South Carolina school of medicine


​Virginia Commonwealth University 


Brandeis University 


University of Pittsburgh 


Any reply would be appreciate.

Your experience is really what's going to help you the most in getting into a program. That being said, I would still take the GRE over again. It's expensive, but if you study and really improve your score, it would be worth it. Your program will want to see a significantly higher verbal score. Good luck!!
