You are required to submit GRE scores taken within the last five years. This is a requirement for all students, including international students who have taken the TOEFL or IELTS and students who have completed prior graduate degrees or coursework. We do not have official “cut” scores as we engage in a holistic review of your experiences and application. If you do have a below average score in any area on the GRE, it is helpful if you can address why you think that is and you can address your scores in your personal statement if you like. For example, if you get a low quantitative score: address how you plan to be successful in a full year course sequence in Quantitative Methods. You can include a paragraph about this in your personal statement.
Your GRE score can take several weeks to process. In order to avoid a late application requirement (which would disqualify you for admission), please plan to take the GRE no later than 3 weeks prior to the deadline. We encourage applicants to take the GRE early enough to retake it if desired prior to the application deadline.
