Ben414 Posted October 31, 2015 Share Posted October 31, 2015 (edited) It's clear that a high GRE cannot guarantee you admission into a top program like HKS and WWS. For an applicant with 164 V/162 Q versus an applicant with a 167 V/165 Q, their differences in work experience and essay responses will be much more important than their differences in GRE's. Although this happens when comparing applicants with median GRE's versus above median GRE's, does this also happen when comparing applicants with below median GRE's versus median GRE's?I received a 161 V/162 Q on the GRE. This is low for WWS: based on the ranges for accepted MPA students given by WWS, I would guess my V would be around their 25th percentile and my Q would be around their 50th percentile. How much of a hindrance would my GRE be? I've heard of people reference 1400 on the old GRE as the score to shoot for when trying to get into top MPP/MPA programs. Unlike at every other MPP/MPA program this is below median for HKS and WWS, so does this rule still apply?
