I'm applying to graduate planning programs and I'm curious to know which GRE score planning schools are most interested in. I just took the GRE and scored 166 on the verbal section and 153 on the quantitative section. I'm very happy with my verbal score and OK with quant. My academic background is in the humanities and I haven't taken a math course in years so I expected this type of result. I've been out of school for six years but I had a GPA of 3.8. I took an economics course in college but there's nothing else on my transcript to show I'm any good at math.
I have the Planetizen guide to grad schools and the statistics for incoming classes show that most students score higher in quantitative reasoning than verbal. Do you think my quant score will be a liability or do you think my verbal score makes up for it? I know that the statement of purpose is very important but I hope to be able to compete for assistantships at the schools to which I'm applying. I want to have a realistic expectation of the competitiveness of my application.
