Chances of Getting into M.S. Stats/Biostats with Meh GRE scores


Recommended Posts

I tried to look up schools' websites about GRE score statistics, but they were either really vague or didn't give that info because they "look at the whole package". I tried to look at the Results Surveys, but in a lot of programs I'm interested in, the scores varied WILDLY (for the users that decided to provide their info, of course), so the variability was too high to discern a reliable pattern. So I was wondering if anyone can shed some light on how my GRE scores would look like to an adcom.

160 V (86%)  /  162 Q (82%)  /  6 AWA (99%)

I'm mostly interested in mid-level programs (e.g. OHSU, UT SPH, Oregon State), so nothing like the Ivies or Johns Hopkins.

Your GRE scores should be competitive for MS Biostats programs, especially if you are applying to mid-level programs. I am a current applicant and I have been admitted to several top 10 Biostats programs with 163 V/161 Q/5.5 W.
