Scores out for 29th October Test Takers!

Postby Shikhar329 » Fri Nov 25, 2016 5:21 am

I got 79th percentile. Could anyone let me know how is this score if I am applying to MS/PhD in Statistics Programs. Thanks!

I got 80%. Unsure if this is a good enough score for top schools or not yet, I'll have to think things through.

Got 84th percentile. Awesome, wanted at least 80th.

For those who like to analyze testing strategies, here is some of my data:

For all the engineers around, I obtained this score without much topology and analysis (studied basically just the Cracking the GRE book). But I could not make it without Abstract Algebra.

How do you find out your raw score?

I got 97 percentile. Score: 900. Third time I'm taking the the test. I've gotten 84 and 89 percentiles before

I used the table on page 64 of the latest practice test (GR1268).

Um, you realize that each test is scaled differently?

I got 77th percentile (score of 780) and am also wondering if this score meets requirements for stats/operations research programs at some of the top schools (Tier 1 and Tier 2)

What do Tier 1 and Tier 2 mean here? Is there a list of Tier 1 and 2 schools somewhere?

I scored 44% below with a 630. Should I report this score to any schools if I don't have to? I'm applying for applied math PhD and masters programs.

Lol, I thought my score is OK, then almost everyone posting here seems to beat me. I got 80th (800%). No complain at all, since well, 3-hour of preparation and running out of gas in the middle of the test....:p

By the way, how could we use the FREE Order Score Reports now? I completely forgot to use it on the Test Date:((

By Tier 1, you meant Princeton's ORFE/Columbia's IEOR/G.Tech's OR/MIT/s OR?? For Columbia, their admission is really a lottery (only 5-6 admits per year), if you look at the data of admitted students on gradcafe. I think you should consider sending it, since the admission committee wants as much OBJECTIVE data showing you can do math as possible. If you have publications, you don't have to send the score in unless it's required (but those programs ALL said HIGHLY recommended), because you already proved your math (AND research) ability.

I scored 46 percentile at 640. Can anyone suggest colleges that I can apply to for pure math PhD? TIA :)

80% is fine for top tier schools, assuming the rest of your application is strong enough for such a school. The mGRE score is unlikely to be the deciding factor, beyond being a cutoff. I believe Berkeley says you should have at least 80th percentile, but even then they state that they might make exceptions.

Which program are you talking about? The U.Michigan's PhD Math said the median for Math Subject score of their admitted applicants in 2015 is 810, and OSU's one is around 95th percentile for international students (LOL, what are they thinking:D). I think UCLA's PhD Math program has the same median score as U.Mich (someone knows about UCLA on here might confirm this?), or might be higher. But for OR/Applied Math, I'm skeptical the median score would be that high, which means 80% is sufficient.

Anyway, do you know how could I use the FREE score report now, given that I forgot to use it during the test date?

I've gotten a score of 790 (79th Percentile). Shall I reappear for MGRE, next year? I will be applying for MS/PhD in Statistics/Quantitative Finance and would definitely want to aim for Tier 1 Colleges.

P.S. - I will be having a publication, most probably( fingers crossed! :D ), on the topic of Prey-Predator Differential Equations Modeling.

Thanks a lot in advance. :)

70% is even fine for an international student, my friend got into Wisconsin madison, rutgers with 73%. Publications are useful only if they are published on very good journal, though some places dont take it too seriously. One of my friend's recommenders got 2 pubs in Comm in PDEs, 1 on Indiana Journal (all as 1st author, they are very good journal, at least for me) when he applied to grad schools around 10 years ago. The only top school that accepted him is NYU. As far as I know, the letters and the reputation of the recommenders are the most important factors. In some schools, the committee highly suspects your contribution to the papers, even if you are the 1st author

That's very useful to know. Thanks a ton for your help. Did your friend apply to Pure Math program? I really think relevant coursework plays a large role for OR's PhD programs, especially at top schools.
