M458 wrote:The TL;DR version: 3.94/169, retaking in December--apply now or apply after score from December? If applying now, do schools automatically see I'm retaking in December or do I have to list it somewhere?

And lastly...Mexican citizen, but grew up in US, did undergrad here, and now working here on visa, but still not permanent resident here--considered URM or not?

Any kind soul care to chime in?

i'm international too, though I came here only as an undergraduate. i think it's better to apply earlier and the school will receive your score. Better still, send them emails or call them to let them know about the new score.

Think it's worth it to pay the app fee for Yale/Harvard this early? I guess my concern is being rejected before they even see the December score. Thanks, giantwhale.

Also, anyone else have any insight as to how an International is treated in regards to URM status?
