Should I retake the GRE after getting 331


Recommended Posts


I have a 331 in GRE (VA 161 QA 170) with 3.5 in AWA.

I'm planning on applying for ms in data analytics to the top tier colleges. Will the AWA score make this difficult?

Should I retake the GRE and try for a better AWA score ?

If you are an international student and also submitting a TOEFL score, I would make sure that the writing score there is high, and also that all your written statements are well-written, so the AWA is an outlier that can be ignored given better evidence about your writing. Your GRE score is otherwise very high. You might try asking schools you want to apply to if they have any official AWA cutoff, though usually you won't get a straightforward answer to that question.
