Selection of Candidates
Completed application packets are thoroughly reviewed by members of the MSPP faculty. Each component of the application is an important part of the process. An undergraduate and/or graduate GPA of 3.0 or higher is expected. Test scores are one component of the total application and so there are no cutoff scores. We generally look for a combined score of 1150 or above on the Verbal and Quantitative Sections of the General GRE (approximately 310 on the REVISED GRE) and at least 4.0 on the Analytical Writing Section. Applicants who are non-native speakers of English may be required to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) to provide evidence of their level of English as it is spoken and written in North America. TOEFL combined scores (listening, structure and written expression, speaking and reading) need to be 637 (paper-based), 270 (computer based), 110 (internet based) or higher.
