Edit: It occurs to me that not everyone knows the grading scale of the GRE or what these numbers mean. The GRE has three sections: Quantitative (math), Verbal, and Essay Writing. Quantitative and Verbal score at 130 — 170 (don’t ask me why), and the Writing scores 0 — 6. To qualify for my graduate program, I needed to score a 140 Quantitative, 150 Verbal, and a 4 in Writing (or, to be more accurate, get at least two of those three qualifications). As you can see, I scored a 153 Quantitative and a 166 Verbal (I won’t hear about the Writing portion for about a week). Thus, I qualify for my program! In the percentile range, I scored in the 52 percentile for Quantitative (which is pretty good), and the 96 percentile for Verbal (which is GREAT). These scores are high enough that I qualify for pretty much any school in the country — at least, if I’m applying for a verbal-heavy program, which I am. Of course, this doesn’t mean that I’ll get into any school, just that, technically, I do qualify. Any way you slice it, I’m very happy with my scores and even happier that I don’t have to worry about this anymore. Yay!
