Yale GRE Scores


This post was updated in May 2018 to reflect the latest information.

Many universities boast a number of notable alumni, but few universities hold a candle to Yale University’s impressive and wide-ranging list of former students. If you were to somehow manage to get them in a room for a party, you’d be rubbing elbows with presidents, senators, authors, economists, and certainly a famous actor or two. But what does that mean for you, not-quite-yet-notable grad school applicant? Well, it means that you’ve got your work cut out for you if you want to join the elite alums of Yale. And one of the key factors in deciding your fate is naturally going to be the GRE. So what scores will you need?

 

Average GRE scores for Yale – Engineering

Here’s the data on the engineering program at Yale:

Methodology

Using the limited score data in the US News & World Report’s release on graduate schools (for engineering and education), I created a block scale that assumes a standard difference between and the rank block (ie Ranks 1-10, 11-50, 51-100). Next I added the expected difference to the average score of the intended major and spread 2 points on either side of that to create a nice range. It would look like this:

Of course, you could argue that this isn’t perfect, and I’d have to agree. This is just intended to give you a general idea of what you should be aiming for. 🙂
