Looking for advice re: GRE scores for PhD applications


Recommended Posts

Hello and thank you for taking the time to read this!

I'm here to ask a question about GRE scores: will my GRE score, given the other desirable aspects of my application, limit my ability when applying to mechanical engineering PhD programs?

Here's a (brief) overview of what I have to work with:

  • 161 Verbal, 158 Quant

  • 3.5 GPA

  • 1.5 years of research experience

  • 1 publication (2nd author)

  • 2 years of industry-level medical device manufacturing experience

So, really, my question is this: based on your experience of applying to PhD programs (or a friend's), does this application, including my GRE score, seem like it stands a chance at institutions such as NYU or Cornell?
