I see a lot of depts waiving GRE requirements for *this* year bc *waves hands at everything*. Just a reminder that stress, financial hardships, illness, caregiving responsibilities, etc of 2020 exist for many folks all the time and GRE doesn’t reflect students’ abilities

I think that the GRE (+ test prep + sending scores) should be free to everyone, and universities should create programs to routinely test all college seniors .... more universal testing would be more equitable & more efficient than whatever will produce

My worry is that applicants with GRE scores will submit those scores, and that will result in implicit bias among reviewers that skew in favor of those scores. Faculty reviewers need training in how to review post .

The EU is frequently weak because 27 states have quite different interests, and in cases like this, German interests will always come first. Turkish defiance exposes EU impotence

The GRE is dumb. It cost me a lot of money and it didn’t even matter in the end. It was just a formality. I’m sorry you have to deal with this

Also, the G&G faculty recently voted to be a part of and drop the GRE as a requirement! This is not yet reflected on our website as the change is pending approval by the university faculty senate, but we anticipate that applicants for fall 2021 will not need the GRE. 2/2

I 100% agree, and I think what you'll see is after this excuse to temporarily waive them during this time, more departments will move to remove them as requirements altogether. The movement is growing. Faculty, if your dept is doing waivers, push for permanent removal!
