GRE's provide some standardized way of evaluating some aspects of the math, verbal and analytical skills of applicants, and we do consider them. The GRE's have instituted a new writing exam that tests your ability to frame and communicate written arguments and analysis, and we recommend that students take this exam. Writing skills are very important in graduate school (and in virtually any job you will want to have after graduate school) and we believe that this test will indicate some of the skills necessary to succeed in this activity. We almost never receive (or, look at) GRE tests in specific subjects. Most, though not all, of our applicants have GRE scores in the 600's or 700's for all three of the standard test areas (V,Q,A). We consider all three to be important, but again, the GRE is but one of many factors we consider in your application. A perfect application is excellent in all aspects discussed above. Few applications are perfect. Lower performance in one aspect (e.g. more
