Average GRE Score for some Universities

What are Average GRE Scores of students who got admitted to a University? Not all universities publish that data (it's hard to find on their websites. Also many top Universities now have a policy "there are no min. GRE".. well we all know there is a 1% chance of getting admission to Stanford if your GRE is <300. GRE is important (especially for International students). We also believe if your score is 160+ in Q, 155+ in V and 4+ A then you should try top 20 Universities. Your past university's rank, GPA, GRE and research work (like papers published), work experience are important factors for admission.

Can I get admission in Top 20 University if my GRE score is high but my Undergraduate degree is from average University (no research/work experience etc)

Answer is YES! We have seen this many times.
