I took the GRE yesterday, here are the results: Q:800 V:550 (AWA - TBA... but I felt both essays were fairly good, and I expect perhaps 5+ or so).
My question is, should I retake the exam?
Obviously, I am very happy with the quant. results, but I fear the verbal will have a very bad impact on admission (not to mention financial aid issues).
My aim is a top 12 (based on econphd overall ranking) program. If that matters for anything, I am an international student whose English is not his first language (will take the TOEFL soon, and expect to get a very high score).
Please let me know what y'all think.
P.S: When answering this please disregard all other application components (assume they are very strong).
