We have gotten several emails from PhD applicants – they have taken the new format GRE and are unable to self report their scores. The online application (accessible here) allows only the “old format” scores to be self reported. If this applies to you OR you haven’t taken the GRE yet but will do so in the near future, you want to continue reading this blog post.
NOTE: If you are applying to either the Accounting or MIS PhD programs, you must submit official GMAT scores. Neither of those PhD programs will accept GRE scores in lieu of GMAT.
If you took the GRE in July 2011 or earlier, you are able to self report your scores.
If you took (or will take) the GRE in or after August 2011, the system will not allow you to self report your scores. (This is because the scoring scale changed significantly with the new format GRE.) If you’re in this category, please do the following:
After you open up your online application
- Click on Test Score Information in the left column
- You will see a small drag-down menu right above “GRE Test Scores.” Click on “Intend to Take.”
- Insert the date you took the GRE. Do not insert your scores in the other fields shown.
This will allow you to let us know you have already taken the GRE and to look for your scores in the system.
If you are submitting your application before taking the GRE (and may not know the exact date you’ll take it), insert the first day of the month and year you will likely take it. For example, if you will probably take the GRE in January 2012, insert “01/01/2012” in the date field.
