Tufts mentions GRE percentile > 60% on each section under "Achievement of the class of 2019." They also state "Applicants are encouraged to have overall GRE scores above the 50thpercentile" under GRE Requirement. I scored 154 (54th percentile) on quant but 148 (38th percentile) on verbal.  I was planning to apply and already sent my GRE scores to them but I'm not sure if they will evaluate my application based on my GRE scores. I have 3000 hours of PCE and ongoing, meet all the min requirements and GPA of 3.69. I do not plan on retaking the GRE test again as this is the only school that I am concerned of in terms of GRE. Should I apply to Tufts?

If you don't plan on retaking the GRE and it's not a requirement to have an overall score above the 50th percentile, you should still apply. Your stats seem pretty good and your GRE is above the 300 mark, so it won't hurt!

I believe they prefer an overall above a 300 but it is not a requirement. That is just the average of the class so take into consideration that there are people with lower and higher scores. Plus, Tufts looks at every applicant holistically.

      Hi! Does anyone know of any programs that once required the GRE and are now no longer requiring it this year due to COVID? I wanted to apply to a few more schools but haven’t taken the GRE. Thanks!

      Hello all, I was wondering if anyone has taken the home GRE yet and if so did you use a laptop computer? My camera can only stare at my face if I want to look at the screen properly and I have doubts this will be acceptable to the Procter. 
      Just trying to figure out if I register to take the at home GRE will I be wasting money because they can only view my face and not my surroundings. I appreciate the help. Thanks
