Dear Ariel: Are my GRE scores good enough to get into Fletcher?
All MALD, MA, MIB, and PhD applicants are required to take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or the Graduate Management Admissions Text (GMAT). Subject tests of the GRE are not required.
The Fletcher School’s Committee on Admissions views standardized test scores as part of the applicant’s total application, but not the most important part. The Admissions Committee does not have a minimum requirement for GRE or GMAT test scores.
In recent years the middle 50% GRE verbal score has been in the 77th – 96th percentile range, the middle 50% GRE quantitative score in the 61st – 84th percentile range, and the middle 50% GRE analytical writing in the 49th – 92nd percentile range. For the GMAT, the middle 50% has been in the 73rd – 92nd percentile range.
And just as a reminder, Fletcher cannot accept GRE/GMAT scores that are more than five years old. Happy testing!
