I'm looking to apply to top Math/CS programs next fall. I just got back my GRE scores.
VR: 164 (93%) QR: 170 (99%) AW: 4.0 (49%)
I get the impression that they are mostly used as a cutoff. I am mainly concerned about the AW score. Is it too low? I could probably stand to bring my VR score up as well since I was scoring 165+ on practice tests, but it's probably high enough already that it doesn't matter.
If the program does not require subject scores, then the GRE General is extremely important. If they do require subject scores then n there's not much importance put on the GRE General since majority of the math is high-school level. But you may need it if you want to qualify for university fellowships.
