Hi everyone!

Maybe somebody already asked this recently, but I don't have time to look.
I'm taking GRE Physics this Saturday, and I already added 4 schools which are going to receive my scores. However, I changed my mind and don't want 2 schools to receive my scores (at least not until I see them since it's not required for them). I thought I could call and change it, but I read on my ticket that I have to send it in the mail. Tomorrow is the last day they can receive it, so am I out of luck completely? They're in NJ, and I'm in IL, so I'm not even sure my letter can get there tomorrow if I send it tomorrow :( Did anyone else have the same problem?

Is there any chance I could delete two of the school recipients by phone or email? It's really urgent... any advice would be appreciated...

I doubt you'll be able to delete them at this point, but you could try the general services number 1-866-473-4373. The website says they open at 8 eastern.

Good luck.

I already sent back my ticket stub, so I don't know for sure, but I thought they also had a fax number on there. If you can hunt down a fax machine this afternoon, that would probably work.

Edit: Found this on there website:

When you receive your admission ticket, check it carefully to make sure your identifying information, address, and score recipients are correct.

If not, make the changes on the correction stub (name changes are not allowed, but misspellings can be corrected) and mail it to the address printed on the form. You may also fax the form to 1-610-290-8975.

I didn't get my corrections stub until Monday, so I was concerned about making changes. I called, and the good news is you can email your corrections.


Include a bunch of info, like registration number, ssn, etc... Changes can't be made over the phone, unfortunately. You can also fax the form!
