University GRE standards are generally set at the school or departmental levels, and there can be significant differences in the score expectations of different departments within the same school. The Department of Economics at the University of California-Los Angeles, for instance, reports GRE averages of about 158 verbal and 168 quantitative, which are in the respective 80th and 90th percentiles of all students taking the GRE. Other UCLA departments, however, have lower standards for one or both areas. The average student admitted to the Luskin School of Public Affairs received GRE scores of about 157 verbal and 156 quantitative, while the averages for the Fielding School of Public Health were 156 verbal and 151 quantitative. A number of factors are considered with respect to GRE score expectations, including the subject matter studied, the degree level, and the ratio of applicants to available seats. Prospective graduate students should begin preparing for the GRE by assessing the score standards of their chosen departments. Target scores should be set significantly above the reported averages, which will give the applicant a substantial advantage in the admissions process.
