When you accept GRE® scores for your MBA, specialized master's in business programs or doctoral programs, you have access to an even bigger, more diversified pool of highly qualified applicants. Did you know that the number of GRE test takers indicating plans for business study nearly doubled in three years? To maximize your applicant pool, be sure that GRE test takers ready for business school know you accept and welcome GRE scores. Here's how.
Promote Your GRE Scores Acceptance Policy and Convey “No Preference”
- Update your website, brochures, viewbooks, presentations, emails and other communications to be sure your published admission requirements consistently reflect that you welcome GRE scores and weigh them equally against scores from other business school admission tests.* You can link to ets.org/gre so your prospective applicants can easily find all the details they need to prepare for test day. You can even link this graphic to the GRE website. And don’t forget to mention your official GRE Institution Code. If you don’t have one, become an official GRE score user now so you can start sharing it with future applicants.
- Communicate your GRE scores acceptance policy to staff and alumni who answer questions on the telephone, online or in the field.
- Communicate your GRE scores acceptance policy to the undergraduate Career Services Center on your campus and to faculty and others who may advise undergraduates about graduate or business school. Also, let them know about the official GRE Advisor Kit and encourage them to print and display the GRE flyers or posters in their offices!
- Be sure your school's listing appears here, as appropriate, and notify firstname.lastname@example.org if changes are needed:
