% here stands for percentile

Myself an international graduate applicant for the fall of 2017. I have obtained an abysmal 740 (59%) score in PGRE. Does this mean nothing can be done now ? I have decent enough research experience. So highly confused.

Research Experience:
Three summer research projects (one foreign internship) with two pre-prints published on arxiv. One among them has been submitted to The Astrophysical Journal (ApJ).

Interested in Gravitational Wave Astrophysics and have worked with 4 members of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration part of Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) that detected Gravitational Waves. ( 2 LORs from LIGO members)

Based on my project, I received student membership to LIGO for a span from June 2016 - December 2016
