Should I send these GRE scores?

Post by crowley » Wed Nov 03, 2021 3:35 pm

The GRE is optional for all of the schools I'm applying to this cycle. Do you think I should send these scores, or am I better off sending nothing?

I got:

Verbal: 162 (90th percentile)
Quantitative: 159 (67th percentile)
Writing: 4.0 (54th percentile)

What do you think?

If you are an international student I would send them in. If not, it doesn't really matter, GRE scores count very little. The math score may be slightly concerning for applying to a physics program, but again, there is very little weight to the GRE score, especially if you have done well in your math courses.

I think sending scores in costs extra (they were about $30 per school my year), so if financials are a concern it might be good to skip.
