You definitely should still apply, but you should take the GRE over again if you can. Your score is low, but if you study harder, you are sure to do a lot better. I got a poor score when I took it last February, then took it again this August and improved. No need to get depressed!
Well, I will not have a chance to apply for the upcomming fall since you can only take the GRE once a month, unless I take it the first day possible in January, but I do not know how long will it take to be sent to the universitites
kepp your head up. My friend got accepted to Univ. North FL with a 980, but she did have like a 3.6-3.8 GPA. I have a low GPA, ~2.99 and an 1150 on the GRE and i'm still applying. However, ive applied to 4 schools in early Nov. and still have not gotten any interviews from the ones that require one. Sucks for me!
well, I have a 3.5 gpa right now, The thing is wanted to apply ti Miami but they require a 1000 score in the grg. other schools say they'll consider lower scores but not miami, you guys think I should still try and apply to UM?
Hell yeah I would apply. If I had the GPA like yours. Doesn't Miami look at the better scores of each section anyway if you take the GRE twice.
i.e. 1st time : Quant:500 Verbal:480
2bd time: Quant: 480 Verbal: 500
Then they will just take the higher sections of each time = 500 + 500. I did look at Miami when I first decided to do PT but it's $9000 per sem b/c it's private... too rich for me.....and plus I went to FSU.
Ohh...and by the way. If your from FL, why did you not apply to USF. They dont even require a GRE score and I think they are the best school in FL....I hope you knew that...you probably had your eyes set on the "U" though.
