Although you do need to take the GRE eventually for BME at Michigan, Ron Koenig (Umich MSTP director) and the BME Department chair told me yesterday at the interviews that the GRE is not needed for admissions purposes to MSTP. You can wait to take it as MS1 or MS2 and still be BME at Umich. I havent taken the GRE and dont plan to anytime soon.Originally posted by Hopkins2010
I took the GRE because I was applying for BME programs. It turns out that Hopkins didnt require it, but Michigan BME/MSTP does require the GRE general test, and Ohio State, UNC, and UVA strongly recommend it.
It seems like there might have been a few other programs that recommended BME/MSTP applicants take it, but I cant think of any others that outright require it besides Michigan.
