Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi all,

I am a geology major doing my junior year at the University of Dhaka, BANGLADESH. I took the GRE general test just after my second year final exams with a 15 day preparation and got what follows:

Verbal:570 (80 Percentile)
Quantitative: 720 (75 Percentile)
A. W. : 3.5 (26 Percentile)

Are the mid-tier grad schools a possibility for me as an international student with such a disastrous score on the quant. I am very anxious about this. I think I could end up with a CGPA near 3.5(+0.2 to .05). I am trying to do some work on Earthquake Geology and Earthquake Physics. I want to apply for a Ph.D. in Exploration Geophysics next year for the Fall 2012.

I am not going to retake the test -- not even the revised one. Anyway, I will apply to the MIT and Columbia. Is this nothing but a waste of money, time and effort?

Please, HELP!
