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.




ps: sorry admin for double post.

A quick glance at the websites for the programs you listed show that you will be below the average scores for applicants (looks like ~70 percentile for both V and Q for Pitt and Alabama, slightly lower for VCU). Of course, GRE scores aren't everything, but since there's still a good amount of time before applications are due, I would retake the GRE if you have the time and money to do so.
