Can I get in the top 10 schools with low GRE



I am planning to apply for a PhD program in Chemical Engineering

I have a really low GRE scores: 147 for verbal, 162 for quantitative and 3 for writing. However, I have a good GPA of 3.98 from a well-known public university. I have two years of research and one published paper as a second author. I also had more than three years working in the industry (not all related to ChemE though).

I know that I should take the GRE again to increase my chance, but English is not my first language so I don't think it would improve much.

What is my chance of getting into the top schools? I am aiming for Stanford for example. Did anyone get into the top school with that low GRE scores like mine?

No one can give you an accurate answer to your chances. However, my guess would be that it would be difficult (ie I would not be surprised if you were not accepted to any top 10 school). That being said, your chances are non-zero (as long as you apply) and I'm sure there have been people that have gotten in with those scores, so just apply if it's what you really want.
