Schools that don't require MGRE
Posted: Sun Oct 29, 2017 12:38 pm
I gave the MGRE twice, first in September and then very recently in October. I prepared quite a bit for the October one but I feel like my score's not gonna improve much. (I feel like all my preparations and hard work were a waste of time and effort) I don't expect it to be absolutely horrible, but somewhere in the vicinity of the 50th percentile. My initial plan was to apply to some decent schools like UC Davis, Ohio State and other schools in this category. However, I feel like my MGRE score is going to hurt my chances to these schools and I wish to apply to some schools that don't take the MGRE way too seriously. I know that some schools don't consider MGRE a crucial factor in judging an applicant's ability to do well in grad schools. I know, for example that UC Riverside doesn't need the MGRE score. I'm looking for names of more of such schools that appreciate a decent research background (working on a master's thesis in symplectic geometry) with decent GPA (3.6) and good recommendations, rather that a stellar score on a stupid standardized test.
