Should I send pGRE score to Brandeis?

Postby niranjan » Fri Dec 23, 2016 9:29 am

Hi,

I am interested in Active matter research.
I did MSc in Physics from a good IIT in India.
My CPI-8.86/10 .
GRE Gen -(164-Q, 155-V, 3.0-AWA)
My pGRE score is 810, 72%le.

I am interested to apply for Brandies.

Brandies doesn't require pGRE score but recommends it. Do you think I should send my pGRE scores to Brandies? Will that help/hurt my chances?

Thanks in advance!

You can look at the thread "Acceptance by pGRE Score -- Data dump! (winter 2015)" on this forum. If you look at the thread, you would find that the mean PGRE for admitted students as calculated on this forum was 820, whereas the median was 840. It seems to be always the case that the mean computed from the forum's sample is higher by approximately 30 points than the actual mean, in which case submitting your PGRE wouldn't hurt. I'm not sure what active matter is. Is it the physics department? If so, they would probably expect you to submit the PGRE if you have a physics background.
