GRE and Dec 1st Deadlines

  1. Nov 7, 2009 #1
    A quick question for everyone.

    Today I took the Physics GRE and while I think it went pretty well I am worried now that I might have a problem. Dec. 1st deadlines.

    A lot of programs like UW-Madison and U of Texas have this deadline for all application materials. Can my GRE scores make it in time to these places? I am worried that I won't be quick enough for financial aid consideration. Without fin. aid I can't go to school.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Send in the parts of the application you are responsible for. Add a note in a relevant section that GRE scores are pending and will be sent in by ETS when they are done grading the tests.

    The schools will probably put your application aside until the GRE score comes in, but I doubt that they would refuse to consider you because ETS can't get the scores in by that deadline. That is not your fault. (Unless they expected you to take the October test, but I doubt this is the case.)
