Dear forum members,
I took the general GRE last winter and got 800Q/710V/4.0AWA. Even though I knew I didn't do well on the writing as soon as I took it (the essay topic was ridiculous), I was still very disappointed to learn my score; I'd assumed that it was impossible to get a 4.0 as long as you at least use proper spelling and grammar .
But the important question is, could such a score get me rejected from a selective physics program? If I retook the GRE and got, let's say, 780Q/660V/5.5AWA the second time would it be worth it?
Thanks for the advice!
