Should I submit my mGRE score ?

Post by nicorobin22 » Sat Aug 06, 2022 9:32 pm

Hi everyone,

I took the mGRE 2 years ago and scored 830 - 81%. I just completed my master's degree in the U.S. this year, and I'm going to apply to some top 10 PhD programs in Operations Research/Statistics. I'm not sure if the mGRE score will add any value to my application, since 81% is not a decent score, even though these programs are not PhD in pure Math.

I hope to receive your opinions! Any advice would be appreciated!

I believe the rule is generally if you score ~80% and higher you should always submit your scores. For instance, in their FAQ's, Stanford's pure math PhD program says that most admitted applicants score 800 or higher.
