I'm happy to report that Stanford Biology will not require the GRE for PhD admissions this year. Late to the game, and not without some heated discussion, but the right thing to do, I think.

I am very glad to see that a is happening. This is long over due. It is a test for test taking anything and socioeconomic status. Which students can afford to that a GRE course or buy prep materials.

I had the new(ish) Dean of the honors college at OSU tell me I would never get into grad school with my GRE scores... here I am 3 years later with a MS from one of the top wildlife programs in the country.

I love that has taken off, but please don’t fool yourself that this magically makes the selection process equitable. If you rely on institutional prestige and pubs, or don’t look at non-academic employment, you’re still giving a huge weight to wealth and social capital.

Is anyone doing a "standardized" experience for interviewees in place of the GRE? For example, providing abstracts or papers to read in advance, which then are the basis for discussion during interviews? Perhaps a better basis for choosing than usual interview process.

There has been good discussion on Twitter about whether biomedical PhD programs should require the GRE. As 2018-19 admissions chair for the MCB program this year I’d like to give my (personal) reasoning why we no longer require the GRE

What qualifies me to speak confidently about dropping the GRE? I've done the research, I've participated in admissions, and today marks the 9th (!) year that I've taught GRE prep to postbacs and undergrads in our summer research programs. Nobody knows GRE more than me.

I’m a slow thinker, but creative (at least I think). GRE was a curse for me: Dinked from lots of places in 1996 based on GRE. Glad to have made it anyway, and even more excited about opening doors for passionate scientists.
