mGRE canceled in New England area (?)

Post by notwelldefined » Tue Sep 07, 2021 4:15 pm

Just got an email from ETS saying that my September/October mGRE tests in Connecticut are all canceled. When I registered for the test, I recalled vaguely that this is the only test center available for mGRE in the whole New England area (correct me if I am wrong!).

Currently emailing the schools on my list that STILL require mGRE and literally begging them to drop the requirement... :( :( :(

Myself and a few friends had our tests cancelled (both in SoCal and NorCal), but only for September. I assume the October cancel is coming soon as well. May I ask which schools you saw required them? I'm applying to almost 20, and all of them are either not required, or straight-up not even accepted

Johns Hopkins. I emailed them yesterday and hopefully they are gonna change their testing policy given the massive cancellation that's happening.

Their website (mathematics.jhu.edu/graduate/admissions/) says this when I check it though?

"In the 2021-22 application cycle, applicants may optionally submit GRE subject test scores, but these are not required. General GRE test scores are not required."

YES! I think they finally decided it.
