Sending GRE score reports before official score released


Recommended Posts

I took the GRE on Monday, November 12. At the test center, I used a paper form to designate the 4 schools to send the free score reports, because I wasn't sure about the departmental codes. I had written them down in a note, but they didn't let me bring the note into the computer test room. So, they told me I could come outside after finishing and fill out a paper form. They said they would mail out the form the next morning.

I checked my GRE account online and saw the official scores there today (11/23). I had ordered 5 additional score reports on Tuesday, 11/20. However, the 4 free score reports I filled out on the test day are not there yet. I tried calling the test center, but no one picked up so I left a message. I also called ETS but they're closed for Thanksgiving.

Those 5 additional score reports (as well as my undergraduate institution) list a score report date of 11/21, so I suspect that my official score came out some time late that day, after the last time I had checked.

Basically, I have 2 main things I'm wondering about:

1. How can I make sure those 4 free score reports were received by ETS? Is there normally a delay for those to show up on your GRE account?

2. For the 5 additional scores I ordered before my official score came out, did they wait until my score came out, and then send it? I hope they didn't send a blank score report... If it makes any difference, I selected my test date when I ordered those; even though the official score wasn't out yet, it had my test date of 11/12 listed as an option.

I hope I'm not being too paranoid. Thanks in advance for any responses.

If you ordered your scores right after you took GRE they will wait until they actually score your test before they send them. I did the same thing as you did, and ETS waited and everything turned out fine.
