Took the GRE this past weekend and did poorly, Q164 & V157 are my unofficial scores. I've done several PowerPrep tests and was consistently scoring 169-170 on quant, I just simply was not up to par when it mattered. CMU is the only program on my list that is still requiring GRE scores for Fall 21', and so I wonder whether I should just cross off CMU and not submit my scores to the programs where they are optional or keep CMU, retake the GRE in late November, and submit my new scores assuming they are competitive. While NYU's MSFM states outright for students not to submit their GRE scores for Fall 21', others such as UChicago or Columbia's MFE and MAFN (though MAFN still says GRE is preferred) simply have it as optional. Besides coming from an unremarkable public university in California (CSU not UC), I feel other features of my application are relatively strong (all A's in my math courses, interned at a boutique IB for 2 years, QN C++ w/ distinction), though I am not sure what missing GRE scores will indicate this cycle. Think I'll likely retake only because CMU is my standout #1 choice, but nonetheless am curious what some of you have to say. Thanks in advance.
