- How much does a good GRE score matter for an admit and funding?
The correlation between GRE score and good admit is not very clearly understood or explained. There’s no hard and fast number which you must score in order to receive admits from top universities. There are GRE aspirants who get into good universities with an above average to decent GRE score, while some suffer to get top admits despite a high GRE score. The thing is top universities do look out for your academic profile, along with your research experience and extra/co-curricular tasks while considering you for scholarships and other financial aid options but a high GRE score can make up for the past academic shortcomings. Since there is no fixed consensus on how much you should score, so to be on the safe side, it is suggested you score 320 and above in case you’re aiming for Top to good universities. Pro tip: Do look into the GRE score criteria before you apply to an University, so that setting the target score and achieving it would be relatively easier.
