General GRE---argh! So I'm an aspiring condensed matter theorist who will be applying to grad programs in the fall. I took my General GRE today and got Verbal: 590 Quant: 770 I was pretty miffed about the quant score, I got bogged down on a problem and used too much time and then had to guess on the last two because I had no time left. So I didn't get the 800 that I thought I was capable of. This might seem silly, but do you think the 770 might hurt my chances of being accepted as a theory student? It seems to me that any physics or math major should be able to score an 800 so I'm a little worried.
