  • crunchprep.com http://crunchprep.com/gre/2014/universities-gre-scores-320-to-340 The Ultimate List of US Universities for GRE Scores 320 to 340 These are among the top 50 in the US. To get an admission call from these universities, youll need a good GRE score along with good grades/GPA. Your overall profile has to be really good, and there is an ever so slight chance of getting a scholarship or assistantship if your overall profile is significantly better than the average class profile of the university. Before You Read On: The list has been provided only for reference. The GRE score is only one part of the entire application process, and hence it should be understood that one cannot apply to a university based on just the GRE score. Often times, the GRE score doesnt decide where you study, but your overall profile does. It is difficult to tell someone which university they can apply to, without actually knowing their entire profile. If you think you need help regarding profile evaluation, let us know in the comments section. We will try and help you out. Candidates with scores higher than 320 should post comments in the appropriate section, and they may not get a reply from us here. Note: While weve tried to give you a birds eye view of each college that weve mentioned below, if you want to know more about a particular college, visit their website (Click on a college name to go to its website.) or Google them.
