Average GRE Scores – University of Texas Dallas (UTD)

gre score utd, university of texas dallas gre scoresAfter I published the post, Average GRE scores for universities in the USA, I received comments and emails requesting for information about average GRE score requirements for other universities.

From the previous posts, you can find the average GRE scores for University of Texas at Arlington, University of Virginia, and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

University of Texas at Dallas

The University of Texas at Dallas is located at the heart of Dallas and it’s a good school considering the quality of education and cost of living.

You can say it’s almost similar to UTA and both UTD and UTA comes under the University of Texas system.

Average GRE Scores – UTD

The following is the average GRE scores of all admitted students in graduate school, which would include all the departments like computer science, engineering (electrical, mechanical, civil, etc.), bioinformatics, biology, chemistry, to name a few.

Year Average GRE 25th * 75th* GMAT
03-04 1,163 540
04-05 1,163 543
05-06 1,162 564
06-07 1,173 1,070 1,300 557
07-08 1,165 1,060 1,300 555

* Percentile

UTA vs UTD GRE Score Comparison

If you look at the average GRE scores for UTA and UTD, for comparison, let’s use the 2007 – 2008 data:

  • UTD – 1,165, 1,060, 1,300
  • UTA – 1,098, 1,000, 1,210

UTD gives admits to students with better GRE scores than UTA. But we cannot draw to the conclusion that UTD is the better school than UTA. Why? Because such are already the average GRE scores of all graduate students admitted to the program, which includes all the departments.

It is possible that UTA could have a department which will give admits to students with GRE scores of less than 800 and UTD might not have that department.

So, when deciding between UTA and UTD, I will go with UTA. If you are curious to know why, leave a comment in this article.

  19. Rahul Shahapure on March 13, 2012 at 1:38 PM

    I plan to pursue my MS in MIS(Management Information Systems). Can someone help me to guide as to what kind of opportunities do I stand in the future. What are the rate of available jobs in the present scenario..??
    Please also let me know the scores for admissions and the best universities for the same as early as possible.

    • Sam on March 15, 2012 at 10:56 PM

      Noone can give you a 100 percent correct answer for “Please let me know the scores for admissions and the best universities as early as possible”. The simplest and straightforward approach would be, give your best shot in GRE and do a research on practical Universities available with that score.
      I can give a better answer to the first question. The job scenario is really good over here. U just need to have a clear focus and aim. I came here for MS in Fall 2010 and is currently working in one of the Fortune 500 companies. My salary per month is the same as my per annum salary what I used to get in India in Infosys. All the best.

      • Rahul Shahapure on March 16, 2012 at 12:43 AM

        Hey thnx a lot for the reply. Just a confirmation as to are u particularly talking about the MIS field??

      • abhishek sharan on March 16, 2012 at 6:25 AM

        • Sam on March 23, 2012 at 10:48 PM

          @Rahul- Job market is generally good for most of the sectors now.
          @abhishek: I am not the best person to suggest the Universities. Check for other blogs in this website. Moreover, I do not have a good idea about the current GRE system and its scores. GRE scores are not the only thing that counts. Your academics, job experience, SOP and reco letters play a major part tooYou seem to be ambitious regarding the choice of universities, so I guess definitely your scores are in the upper end.. UT Dallas should be a safe bet.All the best!

    plz help me out

    • Critic on April 3, 2012 at 10:42 AM

      UTD is – moderate
      other universities may consider [50-50] the reason is ur verbal is in the base level and quants in moderate level. For a B.Tech [IT and CS} studets they’ll expect atleast a minimum of 160+ for top univ and 155+ for good universities. And last but not the least UNIVERSITY SELECTION DOESN’T DEPEND ON GRE ALONE!!!!!!!

  23. Younus on March 1, 2012 at 6:30 AM

      • Hitesh on March 15, 2012 at 6:38 PM

        Hey Jyothi..i have two questions for u. First, did u get admission in any of the universities u mentioned in ur post above ?? Second, From where did u get the information ‘baut this that these universities give admission to those who unfortunately have low GRE score ??
        Actually, people have told me, students having a low GRE score usually don’t get admission in US universities easily. Moreover, if any how u get admission, u possibly face problem during VISA process ‘coz of low GRE score.
        Thnx Jyothi !! Do reply…eagerly waiting..tc.

        • kunal on April 3, 2012 at 9:43 AM

          rit gives lots of admits as a result it even gets max visa rejects!!

    just a minor project in structure and induatrial training..
    Can i get into university of Texas at Austin or TAMU or any other gud university????
    I wanted to apply for masters in structural engineering….

    • Sebastian on January 2, 2012 at 1:43 PM

      I definitely think that u have a good chance to most of the top tier universities.
      TAMU is a very realistic option.
      UT Austin is generally regarded as the toughest university to get into in TX.
      All the best

    • Ankita on September 21, 2011 at 5:16 AM

      A for Arlington or Austin?
      If Austin, go for it, if Arlington, Dallas is reputed to be better. However, Check out the deptt for more info, like d profs, their affiliations, profile (patents, awards, patents, project endowments, no. of phd students guided etc)

      • Gaurang on September 22, 2011 at 11:06 AM

        Hie Ankita! thanks 4 reply .. & the “A” in UTA is for Arlington
        I want to know which is better for CS UT Dallas or UT Arlington
        My profile is sufficient to get into either of this
        But I heard UTD is costlier than UTA .. and at the end both are equal in education (is that true ?)
        So which would be a BEST BUY among UT Dallas v/s UT Arlington as a long term investment ?
        Please give some comments in brief .. I will be grateful to you :] GL!

        • HSB on September 22, 2011 at 12:38 PM

          My vote goes to UTA.

  47. Akellarajasantosh on September 4, 2011 at 1:30 PM

  48. Akellarajasantosh on September 4, 2011 at 1:28 PM

    • Ankita on September 21, 2011 at 5:22 AM

      check the grad admission cutoffs in d website. she should consider sending off a mail with her CV to a prof in her area of interest. if the prof takes her as his/her RA, s/he might excuse the GRE scores too.

    I have currently 2 months experience in teaching as a freelancer.
    I want to seek admissions in August 2012.
    Please suggest…
    Kindly reply at the earliest. Thanks in advance.

    • Ankita on September 21, 2011 at 5:29 AM

      guess this a very late reply but i hope it benefits someone.
      harsh truth: u can forget about TA with low GRE and TOEFL scores. those 2 are the most vital factors for TA. also, few univs give out TA posts. also, TA funding is from the institute and a fixed amount is given
      However, choosing a student for RA is totally dependent on a particular professor and how well you research progress, ur projects have impressed him. the funding is flexible and subject to the prof’s whims & he will pay u from his project; the institute wont pay u anything. in such cases, beyond a bare minimum, GRE n TOEFL scores r not important (unless the prof is cranky).
      people get chosen as TA automatically from the grad applicatn recvd, however to ensure RA, u MUST contact professors atleast before submitting ur application

  57. Amar K.C. on July 8, 2011 at 5:45 AM

  67. Alley on May 6, 2011 at 8:50 AM

    I got an admit from UTD for MS in MIS
    I would like to point out a few points how I got in UTD.
    I got 97 in TOFEL.
    I gave GRE twice. On the first attempt i scored V 350 Q 580. I took another date d same day n gaye GRE for 2nd time within a months time I scored V 360 Q 690.
    I had done my BE project with Persistent System Pvt Ltd from Pune n I scored 57% in BE so i had an average profile.
    But when I applied I show that i had done a project in Persistent by sending a project completion certificate n my SOP was done very well i had taken help from a professional and it was worth it. I also got my LOR from my project guide from Persistent which had helped me.
    I m speculating this but i got in bcoz i had sent my applications a bit late I got an admit bcoz other students might have got a better offer n rejected UTD.
    I also came 2 know from my friends at UTD that colleges in US pay a lot of importance 2 LORs and SOP. So i m requesting students not to copy someone else’s LORs and SOPs or club them. U r unique so why shouldn’t ur LORs and SOP be unique.

    I have been admitted to both UTD and RIT for MS in computer science. I wanted to know which is a better choice. I heard that RIT charges a higher fee. I have got a merit scholar ship of $6300 for the first 3 quarters there. UTD is yet to decide anything about my financial aid.

    I would appreciate your help in deciding


    Ganesh Bhat

    • Jai keerthy on January 5, 2011 at 6:44 PM

      Even i have applied to both of them and i am waiting for
      it, from my perspective i feel that both are same, but UTD is more
      better than RIT if you compare. Even though UTD's campus size (500
      acres) and RIT ( 1250 acres). UTD has many good things especially
      for CS. Did you know RIT has fall acceptance rate of more than 75%,
      it normally accepts all students, even with students who do not
      have good academic background. So if you have got a call from UTD,
      i suggest don't even think about RIT, just go for UTD. It accepts
      only 32% (fall acceptance rate) of the students and you are one of

      • Jai on January 5, 2011 at 6:45 PM

    I was goin thru dis page…Average Scores for UT Dallas.

    Here I came across you stating that, you would go ahead with UTA instead of UTD, could I know why, because as far as rankings are concerned UTD is ahead of UTA and moreover, UTD ends up admitting students with higher GRE scores than UTA.

    Could u please xplain the reason, as I have applied for Spring 2011 in both UTA and UTD, and I want to know if given a choice which I should choose.

      its not necessary to meet the minimum reqirement posted for gre on the uni website unless u have a strong academic background and good letters of reco….so u can always opt for the uni which has the minimum cutoff a bit higher than your score

  112. Nalini on May 15, 2010 at 12:23 AM

    Believe me or not..! My GRE score is only 1000 (Q-720, V-280, AWA-3.5).. I'd hardly got one month to prepare for GRE and in the middle of it I'd got very bad time(fever, pressure to join my company for getting work experience of atleast 6 months etc..). I was upset like everybody after seeing my verbal score.. My Toefl score is 88 (R-22, L-19, S-23, W-24). But my academics and papers in my hand with a good profile gave me confidence to apply for UTD fall 2010. I'd got 84% in UG (B.Tech in Information Tech) 2009 passed out with some national level awards for Robotics. I never gave up. I tried applying for 10 universities. No consultancy I'd approached for. I manually worked myself and Google'd a lot. I'd got admits from UNCC, UTD, IUPUI and one more decision is pending still (IUB). All in MS-CS. So if ur GRE is low, and u have good profile in ur hand just go ahead..!
    Only ur GRE is not a gr8 deal,,.! GRE, TOEFL, Acads %, Projects, Papers, Extra-curricular, job-experience etc all together matters…
    Never give up..!
    If u got enough time to retake in case of low GRE then give it.. Due to my time constraint and my work I can't able to retake again..
    I'm planning to go to UTD now..!!!

    Yup UTA is good university…… My 2-3 frnds are there in UTA doing MS in EE only……Well no it won't affect the degree and the value after completion of your MS….coz even if you do your MS from the UTD, the value remains same …… just you need to care that you shuld try to be best out of all students…. coz after completing you MS you need to be placed in a good company…so it would be better if you will be selected from on campus placement….. thats it….. baaki if you have any query you can add me on orkut…. my id is [ email id removed – admin]

    My profile is like this,

    GRE 1140 Quant:760 Verbal:380 AWA:3.0

    B.TECH(JNTU) ECE aggregate: 66.7%

    12th: 70.6%

    10th: 70.6%

    I had one backlog in all my career, that was in B.TECH but I cleared it in the subsequent supplementary test. Finished my graduation in 2008 but since then I did a course on .NET at NIIT and also took Microsoft .NET certification test and scored 90%.

    So please tell me whether I've a chance of making it to any one of these two universities, also I would like to know universities that offer scholarship to me with this record.

    Sorry, forgot to mention one thing that is I am ambitious in pursuing MS in Computer Science/Programming or IT in US. Kindly enlighten me whether my profile meets the requirement of any of the top 50 US university's Computer science department.

    A small suggestion to you, provide us the feature of editing the text/question that we post here in this blog so that if we miss a point then we'll be able to add it.

    GRE Score 1260, UTA Rejected Graduate School Admisison…

    Since I started writing about Average GRE scores for various U.S Universities, I had few comments and questions about not getting admission even with GRE Score above the average GRE scores required by the University. So, I wanted to highlight few thing…

  186. anil on September 22, 2008 at 12:33 AM

    I’ve scored 1100(Quant-640+verbal-460) in GRE this sep9th, i’m planning to apply for Microbiology PhD, are the labs and facilities good in UTA? and is UTA safe bet with my score?

  187. Raghu on September 22, 2008 at 1:17 AM

    @anil: UTA is good. For PhD, you students usually get funding with admission. But, I would say you talk to professors before applying to schools. Applying for PhD is different from applying for Masters.

  188. Raghu on September 20, 2008 at 6:19 PM

    @paras: For GRE Score of 1000, I wouldn't apply for UTD. you will need atleast 1100 for engineering departments.

  189. paras on September 20, 2008 at 6:17 PM

    my gre score is 1000

    its safe for me to apply for this univesity

  190. Amit on September 16, 2008 at 8:42 AM

    @ Raghu

    how abt on campus and post MS jobs @ UTA.. i m interested in MS in CS..

  191. Raghu on September 16, 2008 at 1:09 AM

    I graduated from UTA and having experienced the life at UTA and had friends in UTD. So, facilities, exposure you get at UTA was more appealing to me than UTD.

  192. Amit on September 16, 2008 at 1:06 AM

    can u please tell the reason for keeping UTA above UTD??

  193. Manpreet Singh on August 29, 2008 at 7:24 PM

    I have score of 1170 and i'm applying for MS in CS. So, would UTD and UTA be safe options for me ?

    Moreover these avearges are for all departments,so what is average for CS? Also, my quant is 790 and verbal is 380 but the minimum verbal listed by universitites on their websites is 400.So,is this will be problem for me as may be my total is within limit but i'm not fulfilliing minimum verbal creteria ?

  194. Sumalya Pal on August 29, 2008 at 10:29 AM

    Yeah please state the reason behind choosing UTA and not UTD. if the latter one is askin for more GRE score for admit then it should be better right??

  195. reena on August 29, 2008 at 1:30 AM

    the average gre scores you have posted are the following right?

    University of Texas at Arlington, University of Virginia, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

    can i safely apply for these universities without considering my course ie. industrial engineering and management?
