Should I mention my GRE for Canadian Schools??

  • This has become our largest and most active forum because the physics GRE is just one aspect of getting accepted into a graduate physics program.
  • There are applications, personal statements, letters of recommendation, visiting schools, anxiety of waiting for acceptances, deciding between schools, finding out where others are going, etc.

Should I mention my GRE for Canadian Schools??

Postby AriAstronomer » Thu Dec 15, 2011 10:46 am

Hey guys,
So I got an 800 (73%) on my Physics GRE, and for the general I got 95% quantitative, 69% verbal, and 72% analytical. In Canada they don't require GRE scores, but also say that if you've taken them they would like to see the scores. Obviously I can just say I didn't take the GRE if I'm not happy with my scores, but I'm wondering if I should report these scores? Do you think these scores would help at all? Hurt at all? Not really make a difference? I feel like overall I have average, or expected scores for a physicist, I mean 800 is pretty good but not spectacular.

Any advice would be appreciated.
Ari
