Dear QuantNet Community,

I have a GRE result of 156 for Verbal, 170 for Quant, and 4.5 for AWA. The schools I am applying are MIT Mfin, Oxford MFE etc. Given other parts of application are decent, how do you think should I retake the GRE? Low verbal score frightens me

Thank you very much!

I don’t think anyone gives a shit about verbal. I got 170 verbal, and people from 2 programs laughed at me when I told them. That said, might be worth a shot.


Man your scores a great. I got into MIT MFin with 170Q and 153V. You should spend the rest of your time in other parts of your application.

Seems enough, can focus on improving other aspects.
Only retake if having nothing else to do lol
