I’m going to apply to USC’s post-bacc program designed for career changers and one of their requirements is a standardized test score. I took the GRE and did not do well on it… I got a 152 in Verbal and 148 in quant. I’m considering taking it again (really don’t want to) but if it looks like I won’t get in with those scores then I will.
To provide some information on the rest of my application materials: I have my bachelors degree in business (3.8 gpa) and I have my MBA (4.2 gpa), my science gpa is I think around a 3.4.
I have many years of volunteer experience both locally and internationally and I have work experience as a project consultant at UNICEF in NY. I worked at a women’s center in Kenya and treated women with HIV/AIDS—which was my first exposure to medicine. I was a member of organizations at my school where we raised funds for pediatric cancer research. After UNICEF, I took care of my dad and was his primary care provider for 7 months while he battled lung cancer
Based on this snippet, do you think I have a good chance of getting in or will my GRE score weigh me down? All feedback is welcome!!
