How soon should I send GRE scores for programs with early December deadlines? I took the GRE again yesterday and would like for those scores to show on the report.
They have to score your AW before they will be sent. I think that usually takes 5-6 weeks. I'd go ahead and get the request in now so that they are sent off as soon as your scoring is done.
FYI, all of your GRE scores will be sent - meaning those from this last time as well as the time you took it before. Schools vary in how they use these: some use the highest, some use the most recent, and some average the two. But they will get both.
I have a question that may be dumb, but...
Does sending general test scores alone include analytical writing? I'm wondering because there's an option to include AW scores, but they make it sound like that's from a stand-alone session. I'm just making sure because this process is really confusing me
A few of my programs didn't get mine so it helped that I sent in a photo copy with the rest of application. They'll still request the "official" scores but at least I could be evaluated for interviews.
Also, not sure if your school sends out your transcripts directly or if you can include them in your application but I'd go ahead and order those too. good luck!
if you haven't taken the subjects yet, it doesen't matter what you check, they'll only send out the general, and you need to get the subjects sent seprarately.
psybee, just to clarify, I'll be taking the psych GREs this saturday but I've already sent the extra score reports form last October, along with my credit card info requesting my general and subject scores to be sent to some schools. Will this mean that I will have to call ETS to re-request my subject GRE scores? Another round of payments???
so this may be beating a dead horse, but i still need some clarification help. if i took the subject test in october, ets says my scores are not sent until the end of november. if i have not ordered score reports for any of my schools (with dec. 1 or dec. 15 deadlines) should i wait until i can send all the scores together and put in a request to send scores at the end of november? or is that too late and i should just go ahead and send my general scores now? thanks!
Ok, so I requested a score report to be sent to my top school, which happens to have an early deadline (Dec 1st)... I got kind of worried about it, so I called ETS today just to make sure that my latest scores were sent. And the lady tells me that my psychology GRE scores were requested to be sent but haven't gone out yet because the score is not available... I did NOT request the psych ones to be sent, I requested the General GRE scores to be sent.... Luckily, she requested them to be sent and did not make me pay an extra $20 for ETS's mistake. It even shows on my confirmation that I requested only the general scores.... I hope this is not the start to more ETS problems...
Yes, definitely not cool... I feel confident that I did well, but I wanted to see the score before I sent it to any schools taht did not require it... Oh ETS, how I loathe you...
I'm trying to order additional score reports for the GRE and Psych GRE.
For the universities that say on their websites to "send GRE scores to the graduate school, not the psychology department" what do you do in terms of ordering the reports online or via phone?
On the GRE site, It asks for the institution code and then a department code or you can just do the institution code and skip the department code. Should I skip putting in the department code for those schools that say to "send GRE scores to the graduate school, not the psychology department"?
On the GRE site, it says you can skip putting in the department code "If your department is included within the Institution Name or if your recipient is a fellowship sponsor, you may skip this page." But those are clearly not the reason.
Unfortunately, I'm going to have to use this much loathed scores-by-phone service. Does anyone know how many scores you get to hear? Just General/Just Psych? Both? Multiple/Past tests??
That's my situation too. They are taking some sweet time with our scantron sheets. (Aren't scantrons graded by machines??)
Their method must be from the 1970s or something.
Sorry ETS!! (Too much bashing)
contact the program you are applying to and ask them where you should send your score if that code is not listed on thier website. no point in playing guessing games if the wrong answer could mean your app. is looked over.
