I am starting this new topic since many may ask what are the minimum GRE scores required by Departments.I have contacted some schools and I make public their replies.If you known more with certainty please post here!
"The math section is extremely important. We expect a minimum of 730. Our average score on that section is around 780 (more in some years). The other two sections aren't given as much weight, but we do look at the verbal, especially for international students. We also look approvingly at high analytical writing scores."
"Our minimum requirements for the GRE is that we like to see strong scores in the quantitative section between 600-700. The verbal and analytical sections are looked at on a case by case basis."
"The GRE General Test is required and we do not hold minimum score requirements"
"All our statistical information can be found at Admission Statistics, Graduate Program, Economics Department, University of Rochester This information is generalizations of typical scores. We look at the application as a whole, weighing each part equally. These scores should not be considered definitive numbers you must achieve for us to review your application. We will review all applications and look at everything submitted. These numbers give you a general idea of those we have previously accepted."

"The Economics Department rules say you
should have a GRE of above 700 in the Quantitative section to be considered as a serious applicant.
Although most of our applications are above 760. Much weight is put on the math preparation and
how well you done in those classes as well as your recommendation letter and personal statement"
"Please visit our web site at NYU > A & S > Admissions for information"
Explicity stated on the departments website if quantitative score below of 760 test should be retaken
