Posted by on October 24, 2017 in GRE Scores | 0 comments


  • average GRE Scores for Engineering are (163 Quant, 155 Verbal, 4 AWA)
  • average GRE Scores for MBA are (163 Quant, 161 Verbal, 5 AWA)
  • for Public Policy (150 Quant, 153 Verbal, 4 AWA)
  • for Sciences (158 Quant, 155 Verbal, 4 AWA)


Georgia Institute of Technology, widely known as Georgia Tech, confers degrees through various schools, such as the Scheller College of Business and the College of Engineering.


Georgia Tech is one of the top 10 engineering schools in the US with an acceptance rate of around 20%. It also offers programs in several other areas such as Business, policy, economics etc. Georgia Tech uses GRE as one of the important indicators for success in graduate school.

Quantitative GRE scores are highly competitive in engineering programs as well as the MBA programs. However, Arts and Sciences GRE scores are relatively less competitive.


The admissions process in all US graduate schools is very subjective, so do not take a top-notch GRE score as a guarantee to get admission. Your genuine passion for the program that you are interested in is also extremely crucial. However do note that most top graduate schools (including Georgia Tech) have an academic centric inclination in their admission process, so GRE and GPA are very important factors.


So let’s look at the average GRE scores of admitted applicants in various disciplines at Georgia Tech.

We have predicted these average scores based on the data we collected from the programs at Georgia Tech or by reviewing the GRE score scores of successful students at Georgia Institute of Technology. Some programs shared it while some did not. For those that did not, we contacted students currently studying or who recently graduated from Georgia Tech. Then we contacted them and used their scores to estimate the average GRE scores. 


Of course, this is not perfect, but it will still give you a good enough idea of where you should be targeting.
