high gre scores are just not enough for those schools, especially for the top three you mentioned.
besides gre scores, high gpa and stable reco's are not enough neither.
I just do not know what else a human being should do in order to get in those schools.
hey guys i didnt mean these are unnecessary data, just even the sum of these may even not be enough (indeed generally you have to keep a high profile in each of the parts of application, but still every generalization is flawed including this one )
