GRE Scores for Top Graduate Schools

Note: These scores are based on the old GRE, administered prior to August, 2011. For a rough approximation of what the same score would be on the revised GRE, take the score listed below, divide it by 15 and then add 116. For example, Boston University's average Verbal score of 535 on the old test would convert to a 152 on the new GRE.
