Just received rejection mail from Michigan Tech citing low GP as the reason for the rejection. Though I applied for the spring admission as a litmust test as I av my eyes set on fall admission. I applied for direct PHd civil engineering.

My profile
My GP is 4.26/5.0
GRE 313(Q154, V159)


Should I drop the idea of direct PHD admission based on my GP and concentrate more on MSc. If otherwise, Pls suggest a school that is safe for me. I've applied to UW and UArK. I'm about to apply to USF but kept it on hold due to the outcome of Michigan Tech.

Good day guys. Please do you think Dec 6, would be appropriate for GRE retake? By my calculation, the official score would be ready by 15th December (10 days after the test). And this same 15th is the deadline of some of the schools I want to apply to.

Do you think it's advisable to consider 6th December for a retake?

It's not the best thing to do. Because even if you get your official test scores that day, GRE might not send it to those schools that day. So it'll still be late.

However, if it is not possible for you in any way to change that 6th December to an earlier date then, brother, what do you have to lose if you try?...... If I were you, given that assumption, I would give it a shot last last.

The response I used from By Mafit

. After you are logged in, click on view orders - Click on the order number - Scroll down to the "Score Recipient(s)" tab and click "Modify" - Add your score recipients with the school code OR search for the school name and department. Do not use both options at the same time. Ensure you add the school - When you are done adding your schools, click "confirm order" to ensure the process is finalized.

Used Barron's for math and Kaplan for verbal.

Didn't simulate the actual practice conditions during my study though. I just strove to finish all the topics in Barron's math and all the verbal in Kaplan. Also used the Kaplan for my verbal. If I had focused more attention on my verbal, I would've scored a 160 in it too.

All in all, 321 is manageable


Good morning bro. can u help with those materials you used?

eastafro:

you can definitely retake the test while you prepare your other documents ready(SOP and what not ). and yeah i was able to increase my 152 quant score to 161 cause i practiced a lot of questions basically.
see the thing is it depends on the school you want to apply to. are you from engineering background? is the program you intend to enroll at math intensive or is it more verbal reasoning intensive? did you see what the scores(average scores since the scores vary) of students admitted to your intended program are ?
the last time i took the test i just took it for the sake of taking it and i was studying in balanced way half of my time on verbal(stressed alot on this cause my first language is not English )and half of it on quant. and i took it ,sadly i got 305(152 quant).
so i started contemplating a lot looking at yocket admits and their gre score. thats when i realized i needed 160+ score on the quant since my intended program was data science or cs,to be competitive that is . i thought if i score good on the math atleast i wont get rejected on the basis of my gre score.
so comes the strategy....focused on math since thats what i am better at. i did Manhattan back to back and nova and the official guide.
i practiced what i thought was challenging me(basically taking me time to figure the problem out since most of them are solvable but the how fast is the key) like remainder questions (got two of them on the test, use nova for this) ,probability and counting(got only one question) and standard deviation(had difficult ones the last time but fortunately none on this time around)
i did almost zero ,yes zero study on verbal cause last time i took a lot of time studying vocab and i did not see none of them so this time i sad Bleep it!! grin i aint worrying about vocab. i did some RC questions from the GMAT though.
uhhh whatelse, thats it i guess. sorry if im all over the place.
check out the diagnostic report and see which sections you messed up so you can try to improve.
if you still have questions let me know smiley

Please can u share your questions with me especially Gmat. Please help a sister�. my email obotlynda9@gmail.com. thanks
