Has anyone been admitted to grad school with "low" or "mediocre" GRE scores? I'm specifically looking for scenarios of engineering/science grad school applicants. I guess "low" and "mediocre" are relative but has anyone recieved below a 500V and 700Q (153 and 155 respectively on new GRE) and been admitted to a program? Has anyone received a net score below 1100 or 1000 (1000 = 300 on new GRE) and been admitted?
I'm not necessarily say the above scores are low. Obviously a low score depends on type of program, type of school, personal standards, etc.
A few other questions regarding the GRE:
1) How do admissions committees look at applicants with one decent GRE score and one bad GRE score?
2) How important is the GRE relative to GPA, Resume, SOP, LORs?
