    • While we do require a GRE score, we do not have a minimum requirement. Of course, the higher the score, the better. We consider the GRE score in the larger context of the overall application. The GRE score is one indicator of likelihood to succeed in graduate school. Other indicators are undergraduate transcripts, resume, and letters of recommendation. We consider these as a whole and balance their strengths and weaknesses as we make an overall assessment.
