BatsuGame Posted May 23, 2017 Share Posted May 23, 2017 Just finished taking the GRE today, unofficially scoring 164 in both quant and verbal. I decided to take the GRE on about two weeks' notice, so I know I can improve those scores a bit, but I'm wondering whether or not it's worth it. I'm a domestic white male, who graduated from UIC this spring with a degree in Statistical Theory and a 4.0 GPA, though I spent my first two years at a community college. (I'm 32, if that matters.) Coursework includes the calculus track, real analysis, (applied) linear algebra, probability, advanced probability models, statistical theory, and statistical programming (R with some SAS). I also graduated from UIC's Honors College, which included a semester tutoring in the math center and an independent research Capstone project (under the supervision of a faculty member). I won a couple scholarships through the math department as well. I've locked down at least two recommendation letters from faculty (including my Honors Capstone fellow), and I probably wouldn't have too much trouble getting another if necessary. I'm looking to do a PhD, and from what I can tell from lurking these forums, it seems like the above should get me in somewhere. But I'm wondering if it's enough to get me into one of the top programs, and, if so, whether taking the time and money to improve my quant score will be worth it.
