Just wondering, but when you call, do you get your numerical score or just your percentile? I think I will just wait until the December 22 day or whatever.

I called ETS this morning! They only give a score

I fell way off my "mark" of 98+ percentile ranking, but this was expected...... the untold stress from Hurricane Katrina & Wilma living in Palm Beach, Florida played a major part....and of course having to deal with the corrupt FEMA agency certainly didnt help.

Thank god, I sat December's exam.

Sorry to say, but you guys are obsessing about a meaningless test. No one really gives a crap about the psych GRE. Match with a potential advisor and research experience are key to gaining acceptance into clinical psychology PhD programs. No one cares if you scored in the 99th percentile on a subject test. It's just one very small part of your application. It almost seems like you're equating this test to the MCAT.

For the record, I applied to and was accepted to seven clinical psychology PhD programs and five medical schools (DO and MD). Not once did my psych GRE scores come up during interviews (I scored in the 99th percentile). I am currently a second-year medical student at NYCOM.

Ditto what PH has said. GREs are just numbers and the psych one is a simple hurdle...your research experience and match with supervisor are what matters.

Yeah seriously, I don't recall posting that I'm now in due to my test score. I've spent the past year doing presentations and getting publications in good journals and researching and contacting the profs that I want to apply to (as well as doing many other relevant things). Along with a great GPA from a top university and a 1480 GRE, I think that all of these things will help me get in. I took the psych GRE because a few schools asked that clinical applicants have it - I know that anything above 600ish doesn't matter. I think that the majority of us who have posted in this thread understand the process, so there's no need to get upset about it. That being said, why not be happy with a good score every once in a while?

720, 89th percentile. I'm really happy :D as I was also an English major and it's much better than I expected to do!

this thread is hilarious - wow, there are some random people out there (who, despite insisting that this test is "meaningless" feel the need to share their exceptional scores with us!) - well done everyone - it is nice to have this highly irrelevant test behind us

I shared mine because I was under the impression it wasn't exceptional compared to the other scores in this thread.

Just wondering... I took the psych GRE in December. On their website it says scores will not be available until 1/13. Seeing that they were available earlier than the website informed for the Nov test - I want to call early.

However, do you have to pay for the call if the score is not available yet - or do they just charge after they inform you of your score?
Also, at the time I receive my score can I request additional score reports to be sent to additional schools?
