    I have a question regarding GRE scores. I have now taken the test twice; on the first test I got Q:153 V:159 whereas on the second I got Q:152 V:160. Will programs (Psy.Ds specifically) mix and match and take the two best scores from the two tests if I reported both of them? I realize that this might vary depending on the program, but I was wondering if there was a general consensus among doctorate programs on the policy that they took. Thanks in advance!

    I can't speak for other programs, but we (a clinical PhD) take the best of both scores. I suspect most schools do this if for no other reason because many of us post our admissions data on our websites. However, this is an assumption and I have no data to support it.

    Thanks a lot for your response! I'll be calling programs within the coming days to see if they vary or not. The early consensus seems to be yes.
