I believe that generally, GRE scores are used as sort of a minimum 
cutoff, or filter.  fA department may requirea minimum verbal + quant of 
1200.  This screeen out a bunch of potential applicants, but after this 
point, not much attnetion is paid to GRE.  I'm sure it varies from 
department ot department, though.

It seems that when I wsa in grad school, I read astudy about how entrance 
committees weight various factos such as grades, GRE, letters.  As I 
recall, undergrad gpa was weighted most heavily, then GRE scores, and 
then letters.
