i am a international undergraduate at a liberal arts college in US, and I am wondering the same question since my vb and aw are extremely ugly.
See this thread (Does the GRE's verbal section count for ANYTHING for an adcom?) for some discussion of the verbal score. My sense after reading lots of econ PH.D. program web sites is that, to the extent that verbal GRE scores matter, adcoms discount them for non-native speakers. And, in general, verbal scores may be a factor in admissions, but they're not as important as math scores.
I don't think anyone has had enough experience with the AW score yet to know what to do with it.
whxyj, I am also an international student in US college. I am also curious about TruDog bring up so to how much more they expect from international students in US colleges.
this is a bit off topic, but I am wondering if other people applying this year already have the list of schools? (I am also applying this year, but I dont have a list of schools yet.)
econguy08, i think Trudog is saying that for us who are studying in US, gre vb should be higher than other int's students in order to stand out.
econguy08, buckykatt, i haven't finalise my list yet. i guess i am ready for some master programs if i get rejected by phds. I am not aiming so high since I like working on research sections in industry or gov.(top schools focus on their academic placement)
requi, u might tell us how low is thy vb. mine is 520.
