What is a good GRE score for admission in Johns Hopkins University for Computer Science and Engineering?


I’ve heard that GRE score matters a lot if you want to get accepted into any MS computer science and engineering program. I’m taking the GRE pretty soon, so can someone please guide me how to perform well in the test? Furthermore, I’m looking into John Hopkins University’s computer science graduate program. Could someone help me know what GRE scores are good for getting accepted into the university?

Thanks a lot!
