Should I send the score

Postby sjin » Sat Dec 05, 2009 12:00 pm

I am applying to the Biostatistics and Statistics program and not sure whether I should send my score or not.

My score is 710 (67%)

The schools I am applying to are in the range of 11-20.
I grauduate from top three Biostat ScM program and have two years working experiences in the academia. My GPA is around 3.53.


Can someone share the experiences with me? I think this score is not good enough and not sure this score will enhance my chance into my target program.


Thanks

For BioStats and Stats, I dont think its a bad score.

A score above 700 is okay for Stats, this is what I heard from UC Grad Chair.
I dont say this score will enhance your chances, but might act as some more weight to your application, since stat and bio stat usually dont mandate on GRE Subject test. Although a score in 80% would have bettered your chances.
All the best.

To aas56:

What department are you going to apply?

I think I will send this score although almost all the programs I apply don't require the subject test. I think for stat/biostat applicants, 710 should be ok. If you wanna apply for Math PhD, 710 is not enough for your target school.

Good luck for everyone.
