does a Fulbright look good on an app if you have less than stellar GREs?

<p>It is the moment of truth for me in this PhD process and had not heard back from any of the schools I applied too. </p>

<p>I am worried about the chances of getting into the program more because of my less than stellar GREs scores but is hoping that Fulbright I did recently will help in my chances. Do you guys think that having something like a Fulbright helps to make the application stronger? It was not an English Teaching Fellowship, but a Student Fulbright to do research for a year.</p>

<p>any insights will be helpful.</p>

<p>I think it should help.</p>

<p>What was your GRE scores if you dont mind me asking?</p>

<p>it was a dismal 1100 combined.</p>

<p>very sad about it</p>

<p>Like I said, I dont think that a fullbright would look bad. it could only help on your application.</p>

<p>I think it depends on the program.. for instance if you are doing international affairs I think that the fulbright is going to matter a lot more than your GRE. But maybe for other majors it is not the case. I personally always think personal experiences matter a lot more than standardized test scores.. but unfortunately I don't review the applications :P</p>

<p>thanks guys,</p>

<p>I am crossing my fingers! I do know that the screening committee understand the types of fulbright out there and a research fulbright looks better than a English teaching one, or so I heard!</p>
