Retract GRE scores once submitted?

Post by spicyguava » Tue Aug 23, 2022 12:28 pm

I took the GRE over the summer and submitted my scores for free on site with the four free score reports because I can't afford to pay to send them later. At the time I didn't know whether or not the GRE would be required by the schools I was applying to, but it was a risk I would have to take because of the money. Now one of the schools just announced it's optional.

My score isn't bad by any means, but it's also not outstanding. I'm above the schools average in Q and AW and below in V. I know people say that if it's optional, you should only submit it if it's crazy good or something, so I was wondering if it was possible to somehow retract my scores? Or if that's considered bad form.

Or do you think I'm worrying too much? Like I said, my scores aren't bad by any means, they just aren't good enough to justify sending them in when it's optional, I just didn't have that luxury.
