Average GRE Scores for Princeton University
Princeton University is one of the oldest institutes in the US and also one of the best in the word. It has an acceptance rate of only 10%, meaning that out of every 10 graduate applicants just 1 gets the honor of studying at Princeton. Moreover it has the biggest per-student quota of endowment fund and is without any doubt an elite Ivy League. Getting into Princeton means that you need to be the “cream of the cream”; and as always GRE is just one requirement for applying to this top institute.
Surprisingly, Princeton does not have schools of business, medicine and law. However there are some professional programs that are offered in collaboration with other departments.
Princeton is one the toughest universities when it comes to the engineering programs. Therefore it has an above par GRE requirement for students applying in these schools. According to US news, the quant GRE average score is 163 and the verbal average on the GRE for Princeton is 161.
Here is a table that will give you an estimate on the average GRE scores for other disciplines. I have used the ETS data on average GRE scores (and standard deviation) along with the US news rankings for each program to come with these numbers. This of course is not perfect but is sufficient to give you an approximate target score.
