    Hi,

    I just started looking at schools myself for OT programs but I do know that Kean University in NJ does NOT require the GRE's. Also, I do not believe CUNY York college requires it as they are a dual BS/MS program.

    Hope this helps!

    Stony Brook University on Long Island is also a combined BS/MS program and does not require the GRE.

    Concordia Wisconsin does not either but wouldn't be surprised if they begin to in the next few years.

    University of New Hampshire doesn't require the test, either.

    Why don't you buy a Princeton Review "Cracking the GRE" book - they're surprisingly effective - instead of having a defeatist attitude? You shouldn't pick your school based on whatever school doesn't require the GRE.

    I just realized this is an old thread, and in fact, one I responded to last fall! I wonder why it was dredged up... odd.

    You could tackle the GRE. There are a lot of weekend courses that can prep you to pass the GRE; however, if you wanted bypass that scam then there are plenty of other schools that do not require it.

    I don't think the GRE is held on the same pedestal it once was. It would be nice if these so-called predictor of performance tests would go away. They won't though. The GRE is a business.

    Therefore, if you don't want to do business with the GRE then continue your search for schools that don't demand that. It doesn't make you or the school less likely to succeed.
