The question is frequent and the facts are few, so why not ask the pundits.
What role do GRE scores play in admission to your grad program?
I.E. on a scale of 1-5 (not important-very important).
Is there a ranking with the three categories; one more important than other?
Is there a need to take an area test for your program?
How many students improve their scores the second-time around?

An example for consideration (purely theoretical)
         student         student
Verbal    550              370
Quant     710              740
Analy     680              750
        -------         --------

sum      1940             1860
