    Hey guys,

    I have a got really bad GRE scores 870(V+Q). My GPA for my Undergrad is 4.0 and Masters is 3.93. Is there anyway that some university might accept me ? I also have about 5 years of work exp... TOEFL is 253 (CAT) Are GRE scores really important ?

    It would help us all if you could perhaps mention which program and major you are considering applying to and what is the break-up of your GRE score (V and Q).

    There are many schools that do not require the GRE. I suggest applying to these schools, and don't even submit the scores. But, as Dingus mentioned, we can give you better feedback once we know the V/Q breakup, and also what type of programs you're interested in.

    Take a deep breath and relax. There is no need to worry, as GRE scores aren't everything.
