    I got 167 then retook to get 170. I don't think it made my profile any better tbh. I guess if you have time & money and are certain about getting better score, then go ahead. Just so you know, I know someone who got into top 5 Econ PhD program with the exact same GRE as your current score. Imho, 167 quant is enough to be above the cutoff, and as long as you are above 50 pctile for verbal and writing, you should be fine.

    I took the GRE once and scored 167Q. I never took it again. I applied mainly to top 15, and was accepted at UCLA only and wait-listed at UCSD. I agree with the general advice that if its basically zero cost to you (ie you have the money and don't need to study or have plenty of time to study) then re-take. If not, don't worry about it, particularly if your goal is 15-40 not top 15.

    I wouldn't worry about it -- you meet the cutoff for most top 10 schools (perhaps it wouldn't be sufficient only for Harvard and MIT). I know people who've gotten admitted into top 5's with the same quant score or a lower one than yours.
