Should I even bother applying to Northwestern and University of Chicago with these scores?


Recommended Posts


I am applying to Northwestern's Learning Sciences program, and University of Chicago's Comparative Human development program. My GRE scores are 162/151/4.5 (verbal/quant/writing)

I just read on here that Northwestern does not consider scores below the 70th percentile. Is this true? Of course, they say on their website that they do not have a minimum, but is there insider info that I am missing? I have three schools that are not so much of a reach as Northwestern and UoC, but I'd like to try (but not if they won't even consider my application because of the GRE.) Other areas of my application are very strong, so I may go ahead and send over my GRE scores, but I am also poor, so if there's no point in spending the extra money please let me know!
