My GRE score just came in the mail - give opinion for chemical eng. grad schools

<p>Quant = 165 93% old equiv = 790 - 800</p>

<p>Verbal = 159 84% old equiv = 590</p>

<p>Writing = 5 87% old equiv = 5 </p>

<p>How are these scores for a broad spectrum of chemical engineering PhD programs?</p>

<p>Should be fine, just go out and apply. Schools typically focus on your research experience much more heavily.</p>

<p>^i second that.</p>

<p>'fine'?? his scores are excellent... you have a shot at any school you want to go....</p>

<p>No, I'd describe his scores as "fine". GRE scores are quite competitive unless he's looking into a Master's. Those scores are only good enough to get the mediocre schools recruiting, since my scores are quite similar but a teensy bit higher. -.-</p>

<p>I'm laughing at mediocre. First, his Verbal and Analytic are WELL above average for Engineering graduate studies. Their quantitative might be around the average range, but well within the realm where the score isn't going to be what sells/sinks his application.</p>

<p>To the OP, I would narrow down where you want to apply, and see if they have any admission statistics.</p>

<p>All of the OP's scores are very comparative to mine (verbal is higher than mine), and I got into every top 20 ChemE school I applied to. I'd say that's far from mediocre; just my two cents.</p>
