University of Florida – Average GRE Scores

Raghu GRE 110 Comments

In this edition of Average GRE Scores for Universities (Part 1) and Average Test Score for GRE (Part 1), you can find the average GRE scores for University of Florida for students with admissions in graduate school.

The University of Florida was founded in 1853, and has been recognized as a “Public Ivy”.

UF is currently ranked 49th overall among national universities in the 2009 U.S. News & World Report rankings.

Getting graduate school admission at UF is tough, but I have seen few of my friends who got admission there but later decided to attend low profile schools, since tuition fees at UF is expensive.

However, if you have college admission from UF, then go for it.

The University of Florida is the flagship university of the State University System of Florida and is one of the largest universities in the United States, with 51,913 students as of fall 2007.

Researchers at the University of Florida developed the world famous sports drink Gatorade.

I couldn’t make it in more readable table form due to time involved in creating table and the amount of data involved.

If you are looking for more information about the average GRE scores for other degree programs, departments, and for previous years 2005, 2004, and 2003, you can visit the source, UFL website.
