While most of our successful applicants have scored above 307 on the GRE and hold a GPA of 3.0 or above, we review each application in its entirety in determining a candidate's eligibilty. This means that strong research experience combined with the ability to demonstrate a solid understanding of the research is also taken into account when considering an application.
