Yes, but GRE is near the bottom of the list of things grad schools consider when accepting a student. At the TOP of the list is the writing sample and the recommendations. Those are MUCH more important than your test score. But, it is a good idea to shoot for a high score to cover your bases.

Yes, retaking the GRE or getting a good MAT score will counteract a low GRE score.

I’m assuming, however, that you meant a low GPA. In that case, it really depends on the particular department that you are applying to. Some professors at said grad school could see potential in the high GRE score, and give you the benefit of the doubt if you explain the low GPA in an addendum or personal statement.

The goal of your grad school admissions packet is to convince the department that you are applying to that you will do very well, not just coast by.
