List of Universities that accept GRE 290-300 score.

The day of your GRE is here. You are well prepared. You know you will do very well. You come across a few tough questions but you are confident you will score a 310+. You hit the FINISH button and wait for your result. The time between hitting the FINISH button and the appearance of your result on the screen seems to stretch over a century. Finally you see the score you have been so anxious about and you feel your brain freeze. It is a 295. How could I even get such a score? You wonder. You are disheartened and decide on giving GRE another shot.

You give some mock exams on ETS and realize you are scoring around 290-300 and see no point of giving the exam again. You give up on it. But there is no need for you to give up on your dream to study in the US. There are several universities which accept students with scores between 290-300. As we know, all universities in the US boast well educated faculty and excellent research facilities. They may not be a Massachusetts Institute of Technology or Harvard School, but they will support excellent infrastructure, faculty and a variety of programs.

Even though universities mention a GRE score range for acceptance, do not shy away from applying to a couple of your dream universities too.
