Are there any minimum GRE score requirements for admissions to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute?


I have no interest in books and just completed my college with an average score. My mother is forcing me to get admission at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for higher education. It would be very nice of you if anyone could tell me the details regarding GRE score and other criteria to be complied with to get the admission at Polytechnic Institute. Moreover, I have no idea about the program I will choose. I want to know the general requirements for any program at Rensselaer.

The master of science in computer science in Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute doesn’t have a minimum GRE score requirement. And, just like most colleges and university, applying to their computer science graduate program requires you’re statement of purpose, CV/resume, letters of recommendation, and official transcripts.

If you’re worried about your GPA, the GPA minimum requirement for their master of science or MS program is 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. But, the higher the better.
