OCT GRe score

  • This has become our largest and most active forum because the physics GRE is just one aspect of getting accepted into a graduate physics program.
  • There are applications, personal statements, letters of recommendation, visiting schools, anxiety of waiting for acceptances, deciding between schools, finding out where others are going, etc.

OCT GRe score

Postby cancelled20080417 » Thu Oct 18, 2007 1:55 pm

when do we receive our OCT GRe physics score? I cant wait any longer. I wanna see my score badly. ETS sucks! They do not take more than two weeks for SAT, why do they take more than 3 weeks for GRE subject test? WEIRD ETS business!

i'm nervous as heck too... my blood is boiling out of my skin... i'd give up 20 points just to find out my score haha...

the official date the scores are available by phone is Nov 7, though I've heard that usually you can call a few days before the set date and get them.

I did this last year. Don't do the phone thing, it will cost you $10 and you will receive your scores in the mail a day or two after you get them over the phone. Have some patience and save the 10 spot to buy yourself a beer after its over.

@grae313:

hahahahhaha


@ hpharty

A day or two? Are you sure... the ETS website says the October scores aren't mailed until November 16th. Even though we all hate to fall for an ETS ripoff, I don't regret getting my scores by phone since this gives me two extra weeks to fill out apps knowing that I should be applying where I'm applying. I'm sure everyone can benefit (in terms of filling out apps) by knowing their scores 2 weeks early. If not, it'd at least put your mind at rest. This stuff is too important to worry about $12.

shoot, and what's another $12 after application fees, paying to take the GRE, paying to get your scores reported, and maybe visiting schools?
