scores by phone December 5th

  • 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.

scores by phone December 5th

Postby octavian » Fri Nov 30, 2007 12:56 pm

the GRE scores for the November test are released by phone on December 5th...that's the official date...Should I call on Monday? I'm so anxious, and plus I have a December 8th deadline for Biophysics at you think it's worth risking 8 euros? (yuhuuu for the weak dollar!!!)

You should call now, and once per day afterward until you hear the scores. You do not have to pay until the scores are available. Typically, the scores are posted 4-5 days before the announced date, so it will happen very soon!

I called ETS but when I type my registration number I get an answer that it is not a valid one.
Did anybody else try?

I don't know Octavian, I left the test center thinking I did well because I thought I had 80-90 questions right for sure(Actual: 65%:740)....Anyway, now to cross my fingers for grad school...
