Should I also report my GRE?

Postby Lxwind » Fri Oct 13, 2017 12:21 am

Hi all! I just got the score from September , and it's 174. Some of the schools also accept GRE scores this year. I took GRE 2 years ago, and got Verbal 163 + Quant 170+writing 4.0. The verbal part is at 92% percentile, yet the Quant part may provide just a little more info? Should I also report that to, say, Harvard? Or will it actually hurt since my verbal is not really high? I know it probably doesn't matter at all yet I still need to make a decision...Thanks!!

Your GRE can only hurt you by raising questions about your verbal abilities. Your LSAT, on the other hand, definitively checks the box for Harvard.

This would be like spray-painting a new car.

I'd just ride that 174.

That makes sense. Thanks!

I have the same question. Took the LSAT back in 2012 (zones and sub zones...), scored a 166. Decided not to attend where I was admitted. Now I have 4 years of experience working in public policy (currently committee staff for a state legislature—I analyze every proposed bill). I’ll be retaking the December LSAT and reapplying for Fall 2018. Hoping to touch 170.

I also have a GRE from 2016. 170v/163q. Considering I’m literally the opposite of OP, should I also report my GRE to Georgetown and Northwestern?

I actually didn't know other schools had the option of taking the GRE.
I'll probably be showing my GRE with a 167/170 and >75% LSAT to the schools.
