If you know the average GRE scores of international students admitted at U.S. universities and graduate programs, you can compare them with your own profile so as to estimate your admission chances.

The U.S. university selection process is tough, especially without having all the necessary information.

Selecting universities based on GRE scores alone is not the really the right approach, but it’s at least a place to get started with.

Average GRE scores required for grad school admission is not readily available to all the U.S. universities. It takes some time and effort to find all those details.

For quite some time now, we have been gathering the average GRE scores of various U.S. universities from their websites. Some of those universities are listed below.

Average GRE test scores for graduate schools

The following list contains the average GRE scores required to get admission at several universities in the USA.

Also, you have to remember that GRE is not the only factor considered for college admission. If your score, though, is far below the required minimum GRE, then your application might be rejected.

  1. University of Florida – Average GRE Scores
  2. Baylor University – Average GRE Scores
  3. Louisiana State University
  4. GRE and GMAT Scores – University of Texas at Arlington
  5. University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill
  6. GRE Scores – University of Texas in Dallas
  7. GRE Score – University of Virginia
  8. University of Texas
  9. University of San Antonio
  10. Average GRE and GMAT Scores – University of North Texas

Average GRE Test Scores

Many factors are considered by graduate school admission offices before giving admission to students. So don’t select universities just based on the average GRE scores of admitted students.

You should also give equal importance to following requirements:

  • Letter of Recommendation
  • Statement of Purpose
  • TOEFL Score
  • Paper publications
  • And much, much more.

For example, if the required Average GRE Scores are around 1,150 for a certain university, although you might have 1,250, it’s still possible to have you application get declined.

There are so many other factors that are considered along with GRE scores for graduate school admission.

Any score above 1,100 is good, but there are colleges and universities in the U.S. that still accept GRE scores of 800 and below.

    I have some queries:

    1. Is it necessary to give TOFEL exam to do MS from US if we have given the GRE exam?

    2. What are the career prospects after doing MS in India?

    3. What are the chances and ways of getting full scholarship once GRE is cleared, in US.

    I am a student of B.Tech 8th semester and your advice would be really fruitful.

    Regards.
