Note that the minimum values to be considered for admission are an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale and GRE scores that are at least in the upper 50% of students taking the exam on both the verbal and quantitative parts of the exam (these are minimum values to be considered; higher values are required for admission).
楼主 G的verbal硬伤啊（v149,rank 40%)，一下就戳到痛处了,于是回复对面导师，求帮助，稍微低几分不行么，再考恐怕来不及了。
教授很委婉的回复了“The GRE scores I mentioned are minimum values to be considered only (a minimum cutoff). To be seriously considered requires that an applicant's scores be very high - much higher than the minimum values. For reference, several of the students that were ultimately admitted last year had almost perfect GRE scores and very high GPAs (near 4.0/4.0) from top-ranked universities”
然后我又吓尿了，OU这么抢手啊，都perfect GRE score, 满GPA的，这是什么情况啊？
