Take the Graduate Record Examination [GRE]


The GRE is a standardized test that attempts to measure your quantitative, verbal, and analytic writing skills. Many graduate programs require you to take the General Test (few programs require the subject tests; check before registering).    

  • Studying for the GRE in advance is important. It is possible to raise your scores by learning vocabulary, reviewing math, and taking practice exams and test-preparation courses.
  • For more information on the GRE and to register to take the test, visit www.ets.org/gre
  • Take the test before the November of your graduate school deadlines!
