% 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.
I am posting my profile here for your reference. Any help and I would be highly obliged.
