After 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|
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.
