Quick Qns : Scores Mailing Date

Post by Legendre » Mon Sep 21, 2009 3:00 am

ETS says for the test on : November 7, 2009
The approximate scores mailing date is : December 18, 2009

Does this mean they will START mailing out the scores only on Dec 18? Or does this mean I should expect to see the scores in the mail on Dec 18?

It reads like the latter but I was hoping to get some confirmation from you guys. Planning to report my scores if and only if I find that they are good. :oops: Also quite worried about receiving the scores too late for grad school applications since I live somewhere in Asia! (mail takes weeks to arrive from the states :( )

I think if you open your file and make a note to the committee that there might be slight time delay in the scores arriving on time you should be good to go. Assuming your profile looks good relative to the applicant pool.

Also, the scores mailed to the schools might be sent from the USA.

So one can take a November test, and see the scores before deciding about showing them to schools with deadlines of mid-January?
The wife just told me that ETS sends "the entire score packet" or nothing, so if you are submitting general GREs, then they send your subject test scores no matter what.
