I didn't get a GRE score report in the mail

Did anyone get a GRE score report? I took the PGRE in September and October, and received nothing. Not sure what to do about a fellowship application that wants me to scan and upload it.

Can you download the PDF from your online GRE account and use that?

I don't recall ever getting an official score report (it was just sent directly to the schools I asked them to report to), but it has been a while so they might have changed the rules. I think you're going to have to ask, or do as TakeruK says and download the PDF.

I think they do this so you have to pay the ridiculous $25 or whatever it is to send in an 'official' score report to each school you apply to.

In 2011, I did get an "unofficial score report" mailed to me. It is also called the "Examinee's Score Report" and there are big letters all over it that you should not send it to schools. It's even a different colour so that we can't "trick" the schools into thinking we are sending them the real report and avoid paying ETS the $25. It was actually the way I found out my AW score since I was out of town getting married after my general GRE exam so I didn't think to check for scores online. But it's possible that they have stopped sending out the paper versions because they are essentially useless now that everything is accessible online (or maybe it was lost in the mail or something).

Thanks, I found a printable report on the GRE website, which I saved as a PDF. It has a little more information than I would have wanted to submit, but oh well.

One of my schools had issues getting the official score report from ETS for some reason so I had to scan and submit my unofficial Examinee report. It had extra info, like my Physics GRE score (this program did not require it) and other schools I sent my score to, so I just covered up the info when I scanned it and let the school know that I was blocking some information out.

If the school wants you to send this version for some reason, then explain that you did not receive a paper copy and use a PDF from the GRE website.
